Teaching New Religious Movements

David G. Bromley


Since its inception around 1970, the study of new religious movements (NRMs) has evolved into an established multidisciplinary field. At the same time, both the movements and the scholars who study them have been the subjects of intense controversy. In this book, a group of senior NRM scholars who have been instrumental in the development of the field offer pivotal essays in the form of chapters that present the basics of NRM scholarship along with guidance for teachers on classroom use.

Keywords: new religious movements, NRM scholars, NRM scholarship, teaching, classroom use
