"Sociology of Religion for Generations X and Y is 50 percent empirical, 50 percent prophetic. It is this quality, perhaps, that makes it 100 percent recommended reading." - Religion "Written for, and about, post-1970 generations X and Y, Possamai's very timely work will assist readers to make sense of the various new forms of believing, belonging and behaving pursued by Xers and Yers, many of whom remain unconcerned with transcendence, religious knowledge, or the salvation of the soul." - Studies in Religion Book Reviews
