Beschreibung

From Hare Krishna to the Latter-Day Saints, and from Jehovah's Witnesses to the New Age, religious pluralism in North American presents evangelical Protestantism with significant challenges. Declaring newer religious groups "cults," "aberrant sects," and "heretical religions," the Christian countercult movement has warned that these groups represent a threat to society. In Bearing False Witness? Cowan considers the Christian countercult as a whole, locating it in sociological perspective as an entity distinct from the secular anti-cult. Through his analysis, the author argues that the primary purpose of the countercult movement is to reinforce and repair the Christian worldview when it appears threatened by the advent of alternative religious traditions. This unique analysis of the Christian countercult helps explain why conservative Christian responses to competing religious movements have taken the form that they have in addition to how those responses are carried out.

Pressestimmen

"Surveys an important but heretofore poorly documented movement within American evangelicalism. Cowan has called upon a more theologically neutral discipline of the sociology of knowledge to examine the worldview that informs the countercult exponents and from which to offer some rather important critique. He carefully distinguishes between the secular anti-cult movement and the countercult movement on a variety of issues, inviting readers into the variegated world of the movement."-J. Gordon Melton Director Institute for the Study of American Religion
