Claiming that modern interest in the sacred remains constant over time but that the sacred continually manifests itself in changing forms, Wuthnow examines the main theoretical approaches toward religion that have emerged of late in the social sciences, and he shows how these approaches have moved away from the idea of linear secularization and can help explain the changing character and shifting location of the sacred in modern society.
