beschrijving

Does religion have a future in the Netherlands? Has it all but expired, or is it in the process of being transformed? These are the main questions addressed in this volume on religion in the Netherlands since 1950. In the first part, James Kennedy, Anton van Harskamp and Jos Becker offer theoretical and empirically-based interpretations of the recent Dutch past: should we speak of secularization or religious transformation? The second part is concerned with far-reaching changes in religious practice. Paul Post discusses Roman Catholic liturgy, Karin van Nieuwkerk Islamic conceptions of religious merit and David Bos the adoption of psychology in pastoral training. New religious trends form the theme of the third part of the volume. Pieter Boersema, Erik Sengers and Stef Aupers examine respectively the Evangelical Movement, the Alpha Course and New Age. The Dutch and their gods shows that, while organized religion is in continuing decline and the future of religion in the Netherlands remains uncertain, Dutch religion is still very much alive and perfectly able to adapt to changing circumstances.
