    schema:reviewBody ""Religion and Everyday Life explores the historical and contemporary relevance of religion to social life, through an examination of practice and belief. In this introductory text, Stephen Hunt reconsiders how theories and concepts are lived at the level of selfhood and cultural identity." "Religion and Everyday Life considers contemporary religiosity in all its forms, ranging from mainline Christianity, sectarianism and fundamentalism to new religious movements, ethnic religions and the New Age. Stephen Hunt uses up-to-date theory and research evidence to explore the vitality or otherwise of religion at the individual and everyday level. At the same time the book looks at contemporary changes in religious life and how these are impacted by socialization, institutional belonging, belief and practice through the life course, and the significance of class, gender, age and ethnicity." "This book provides an accessible and captivating introduction to the sociology of religion and will be of interest to undergraduate students of sociology and religion."--Jacket." ;
