Death, Meaning, and the Power of the Invisible World

Clay Routledge

  • Reveals fascinating research pointing to the fact that as people abandon conventional faiths, they become more interested in other supernatural and paranormal ideas
  • Argues against the mainstream belief that people are becoming wholly more rational and scientific
  • While most pollsters argue religiosity is declining, Routledge urges readers to look more broadly at the data on people's attraction to the supernatural
  • Explores the positive features of religion, the dangers of religious fundamentalism, and the problem of atheists being a distrusted group
