Publisher Comments:

What is a religion? Why are people religious? Are religious people more educated than nonreligious people? Are religious people more moral, more humble, or happier? Are religious people more or less prejudiced than nonreligious people? Is religion good for your health? Are people becoming more or less religious? Studying religion as a social phenomenon, Ryan T. Cragun follows the scientific data to provide answers to these and other questions. At times irreverent, but always engaging and illuminating, What You Don't Know About Religion (but Should) is for all those who have ever wondered whether religion helps or hurts society—or questioned what the future holds for religion.

About the Author

Fredrick O'Keefe, October 6, 2013 (view all comments by Fredrick O'Keefe)
This is a foundational resource for sociologists and lay people alike. Clear, concise explication of religious beliefs and believers' actions, backed by tons of documentation. Many illustrations get the messages across. This is a great book for comparative religion studies.
