Finding Religion in Everyday Life

Nancy Tatom Ammerman

  • Draws on a wide variety of sources, including oral diaries and photo elicitation, to study "lived religion"
  • Argues that spirituality is intimately tied to religious traditions and communities, even as it is also sometimes experienced in ways that extend beyond those traditions
  • Documents the extent to which everyday "secular" activities are often experienced as more-than-ordinary
