Summary:
Sacred and Secular demonstrates that: (1) The publics of virtually all advanced industrial societies have been moving toward more secular orientations during the past fifty years; but (2) The world as a whole now has more people with traditional religious views than ever before - and they constitute a growing proportion of the world's population. Though these two propositions may seem contradictory, they are not.
