"This will be the book to consult for both a synthesis of what has been observed in the areas of American religion and spirituality and for some fresh observations about where American searchers are moving. Wade Clark Roof writes so clearly, is so jargon-free, and is so ready to share his insights with the public that I would think everyone from college-textbook users through mass ommunicators to humanistic and social scientific observers of the American scene would find it intelligible and useful."----Martin E. Marty, Professor Emeritus and Director of the Public Religion Project, University of Chicago"This is an engaging book that will easily be read by undergraduates and folks in the pews as well as by academics. One of its key arguments is that American religion can best be characterized by searching, rather than by stable identities or by preferences or affiliations with particular denominations or traditions. "Spiritual Marketplace" explores the social sources of this searching and how it affects Americans' understandings of personal identity, their commitments to religious institutions, and their moral orientations. The book succeeds admirably in accomplishing its ambitious aims."--Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University

Wade Clark Roof, a well-known commentator on religious trends in the United States is the J. F. Rowny Professor of Religion and Society at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of many books, including A Generation of Seekers: The Spiritual Lives of the Baby Boom Generation.
"This book shows not only how the 76 million boomers have been shaped by such seeking but how they have remapped the spiritual landscape for all Americans; boomers have shifted attention from the institution to the individual, emphasized 'lived religion' (religion in practice) and created a 'quest culture'."--Publishers Weekly "Baffingly diverse and in a state of historic flux, American religion today defies easy generalization. Wade Clark Roof has tackled the challenge admirably, doing a yeoman's job at compiling vast amounts of often surprising information..."--Los Angeles Times "Roof's work thoughtfully articulates the introspective fluidity of the baby-boom generation he studies."--Publishers Weekly "What does it mean [to be] spiritual? That's what Roof has set out to ask and to answer: to track, capture, and name the current varieties of religious or spiritual experience in America. What he's come up with is a kind of metaphysical seed-catalog, a bewildering array of groups and sub-groups, beliefs and opinions, views and world-views, much of it mixed and matched."--Mark Buchanan, Books & Culture "Roof writes in a jargon-free, accessible style, often lucidly summarizing (and challenging) the arguments of other sociologists and cultural observers."--Choice "This is a terrific book ... Roof clearly demonstrates the old saw that people create their gods, not vice versa."--The Key Reporter, Phi Beta Kappa "Full of interesting findings and provocative interpretations."--Sociology of Religion "This is a seminal study for the sociology of religion. It should be considered indispensable to anyone trying to take the spiritual pulse of America."--John A. Coleman, S.J., Spiritus "A significant contribution to understanding trends in the lived religion of many Americans in their question for meaning."--Jackson W. Carroll, Journal of the American Academy of Religion
