Cyber Worship in Multifaith Perspectives, as is implied by its name, explores worship (i.e., Prayer, Praise, Scripture, Sacrament, Rituals, Confessions, Eucharist, Rites, Pilgrimages, Reflection, Contemplation, etc.) on the Internet. It is not an "everything you need to know" guide about the subjects of faith and belief, religions-online, religions on the Net, or religions in cyberspace. Rather, it is a book about religious and spiritual experience under the rubric, cyber worship, which is the variety of ways religious devotion is performed and carried out on the Internet. The term 'Cyber Worship' is a catchall phrase, which includes variants such as online worship, virtual worship, electronic prayer, cyber puja, cyber synagogue, and so on. Dr. Mohamed Taher has thus assembled a quick reference for two groups: those communities that are involved in Cyber Worship and business Webs that collaborate in sustaining wired environments. As such, this book provides an interesting and current perspective on a practice that will continue to grow in the future.

Reviews

Mohamed Taher's new book provides an indispensable guide for considering the resources of worship online, whatever the faith, wherever believers are located. -- Bruce Lawrence, Duke University An information specialist at the Ontario Multifaith Council on Spiritual and Religious Care, Taher explores religious worship on the Internet, in which people engage in prayer, praise, sacrament, confession, Eucharist, pilgrimage, contemplation, and other practices online. He offers a systematic though not comprehensive catalog of services, products, processes, approaches, applications, and functions that encompass mainstream and alternative traditions of belief and practice. Reference and Research Book News, November 2006 ...provides the most comprehensive "map" to religion on the Internet. American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) Cyber Worship in Multifaith Perspectives is an important and significant contribution to the new field of scholarship examining the religious dimension of the Internet. By employing Webmetrics, Dr. Taher presents readers with the most comprehensive and up-to-date mapping of the religious websites available, providing essential information for those wishing to better understand how religion functions and flourishes on the WWW and also those interested in using this new medium for their own spiritual quest. -- Christopher Helland, Dalhousie University
