Reviews of “Shopping for Faith”

"A savvy appreciation of where we are now and where we are heading in the restless search for spiritual truth…To their credit, the authors concern themselves only with an inventory of the spiritual resources that are available, and they make no value judgments about the choices we may make."
— Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times

"Shopping for Faith is as good as it gets in assessing the U.S. religion scene at millennium’s end."
Robert Elwood, emeritus professor of religion, University of Southern California

"Vivid personal stories…capture the transformation of the religious landscape. Religious leaders and scholars would do well to ponder the many pressing questions raised by Cimino and Lattin’s impressive book."
Wade Clark Roof, Christian Century magazine

"A brisk new book by journalists Richard Cimino and Don Lattin…Their chronicle of religion and culture finds an abundance of shopping activity…Cimino and Lattin reach beyond market themes to social issues, culture wars, the search for community and varieties of spirituality…A helpful update.
— Religion scholar Martin Marty

"Once in a while, a book comes along that genuinely pins down religion in the United States and persuades the reader the future doesn't’t look so bad. Such a book is Shopping for Faith: American Religion in the New Millennium."
— Clark Morphew, St. Paul Pioneer Press
