More and more Americans are dropping out of religion; between 20 and 30 percent of Americans now claim to have no religious affiliation. Rates of atheism and agnosticism are at all-time highs. This recent wave of secularization is occurring in many other nations around the world, as well. So what do we know about men and women who live their lives without religion? This book has been written to provide as thorough and empirically grounded answer as possible to that question. This book presents a summation and analytical discussion of existing research on nonreligious people. The book also sharpens and improves upon existing conceptual frameworks, theoretical typologies, and empirical trajectories currently in place, so as to better advance the newly emerging enterprise of secular studies.
