Summary
Despite predictions that the contemporary world with its secular trends would eventually turn religion into an anachronism, at no time in modern history has religion been more vibrant and intense than now. In Sacred Tensions, Raymond L. M. Lee and Susan E. Ackerman consider this resurgence of religion, particularly the resurgence of charismatic practices, in light of the importance of modernity, rationalism, and bureaucracy. The authors look specifically at the relation between secularization and religion in Malaysia, which, as a crossroads of the world religions, exemplifies religious multiplicity. They examine the development and practice of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity and from their analyses provide insight about how established and charismatic religions fit into the framework of modernization and secularization throughout the world
