This essay examines the very idea of civil society in an era of globalization and questions religions’ relationship to it. Using Pentecostalism, resurgent Islam, and Catholicism as examples, it argues that religion fosters both civility and incivility, though it tends to lead to the latter more often.

Keywords:   civil society, globalization, religion, Pentecostalism, resurgent Islam
