This chapter examines the present day practice of popular religions, particularly those of southern White evangelicals in the United States. Individual religious practice is so complex because many people use not only official religious traditions but also popular traditions and other unapproved sources of religious beliefs and practices. Religious eclecticism and combination is not restricted to the poor, the immigrants, and the uneducated. It typifies nearly every sector of the religious population, including the southern white evangelicals who were considered as the most committed of churchgoers and the most conservative in their old-time religious tradition.
