Here's what you say about us...

"I have already decided to assign this book as a text for my course in sociology of religion this year. This indicates my esteem for this study. I will assign it because of its focus on religious movements as a species of social movements rather than on religion as collective episode, institution or collectivity." -- Anglican Theological Review
