Future of Faith in America: New Religions

Religious diversity in America has exploded in the last century, and religious freedom has further promoted the marketplace of spiritualities. In this final week of the Patheos Summer Series, we explore some of these new religious developments. Some of them are derived from Christian roots; others identify with even older traditions; and yet others are much newer developments of thought and practice.

This topic is part of our summer symposium on the Future of Faith in America. For more resources visit our Future of Faith main page.
