Reviews

"Illuminating intersections of religion and public life in four different nations, this book is topical. Given that two of these nations are in the Middle East and one of them is the U.S., it is of very contemporary relevance. Given that one of them is Egypt, it is timely, even urgent." R. Stephen Warner, University of Illinois at Chicago "[A]n engaging read from beginning to end ... I can think of no other recent book on orthodox movements that is as broad in its scope, rich and detailed in its narrative, well-grounded in its theory and insightful in its analysis as Claiming Society for God."--Review of Religious Research
