"I heartily recommend Religion on the Move! This book belongs in all of our institutions' libraries. It is theoretically informed, empirically rich, and moves the field closer toward a sociology of religion that is less parochial."
Mary Jo Neitz, University of Missouri, Sociology of Religion 75:2

"This book is an essential recommendation for graduate students, researchers, and faculty in sociology/anthropology of religion, political science, intercultural studies religious studies, and history; indeed, many of the ethnographic chapters would be suitable for undergraduate teaching and reading as well."
Asonzeh Ukah, University of Cape Town, Journal of Religion in Africa 45

"In this volume, Afe Adogame and Shobana Shanka have brought together a very impressive array of essays that will serve the interest of scholars and graduate students interested in the changing face of religion in contemporary contexts, and the relationship between religion and public life in the world today."
J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, Trinity Theological Seminary, Ghana, Pneuma 37

"A fascinating feature of this book includes developments in non-Christian traditions, for example, Confucianism and Japanese Christianity, Hinduism in Ghana, Islam in Kenya and Nigeria."
John Cheong, Missiology: An International Review 42:2

"This book offers some theories but also presents many interesting case studies."
Wojciech Kluj, OMI, Bibliographia Missionalia

"Historians and scholars of religion generally and of particular religions, along with other social scientists, chart dynamic religious flows now that it is not wealthy European countries radiating missionaries, but countries with more democratic religion, such as South Korea, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Nigeria."
