America's New Religious Diversity
The United States increasingly perceives itself as a multireligious society. The Introduction describes the changing American religious landscape and its implications for local Christians. Two major social trends have contributed to this new religious diversity in the United States: increased immigration and interest in “alternative” or “new” religions. Individuals and groups featured in this book have responded to religious diversity in a variety of ways and out of deliberate Christian conviction. Their experiences can prompt readers to act with the same deliberate conviction. The Introduction includes the perspectives of the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Assemblies of God. The question of religious truth is broached here and recurs throughout the book.
