In this provocative book, Finke and Stark challenge popular perceptions about American religion. They view the religious environment as a free market economy, where churches compete for souls. The story they tell is one of gains for upstart sects and losses for mainline denominations. "A brilliant and revolutionary analysis of the social history of American religion. . . ".--Andrew M. Greeley. 47 illustrations and maps.
