Religion and Progressive Activism

Rhys H. Williams

NYU Press

In a concluding chapter, Rhys H. Williams assesses the ways in which attention to the complexities of progressive religion in the United States forces us to reassess longstanding theoretical understandings of religion, social movements, civic life, and political action. Drawing out key themes and questions that emerged from the volume, the conclusion examines the factors that have led to the low visibility of progressive religious social action in the media and academic research, and points to several conceptual and empirical benefits of taking progressive religion into account when studying American political life.
