Popular books such as The God Delusion have dismissed religion as a delusional artifact of evolution and ancient superstitions. But should millions of Americans' statements of belief and their behavior be dismissed that quickly? The pattern of religious influence in American society suggests mass consequence rather than mass delusion. In God Is Alive and Well, Frank Newport, Gallup's Editor-in-Chief, provides a new evidence-based analysis of Americans' religious beliefs and practices - and bold predictions about religion's future in the U.S.
America is and will remain a religious nation, and it is entirely possible that in many ways, religion will be more, rather than less, important in the years ahead.
God Is Alive and Well is based in large part on more than a million interviews Gallup has conducted in recent years - interviews that asked Americans about their religion, their religious beliefs, and their religious behavior. The resulting data provide an unparalleled and unprecedented database of information about Americans and their religions.
Written for lay readers using a conversational tone, God Is Alive and Well presents new information with an entertaining style.
