Teaching New Religious Movements

David G. Bromley

AAR Teaching Religious Studies Series

Since its inception around 1970, the study of New Religious Movements (NRMs) has gradually evolved into an established multidisciplinary area of study. At the same time, both the movements and the scholars who study them have been the subjects of intense controversy. In this volume, a group of senior NRM scholars who have been instrumental in the development of the field offer essays that present the basics of NRM scholarship along with guidance for teachers on classroom use. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the volume provides comprehensive, accessible information and perspectives on NRMs. It is an invaluable guide for instructors navigating this scholarly minefield.
