Leaving Christian Fundamentalism and the Re-Construction of Identity

Full Product Description

There is an increasing interest in the influence of religious fundamentalism upon people's motivation, identity and decision-making. Leaving Christian Fundamentalism and the Re-construction of Identity details the stories of those who have left Christian fundamentalist churches and how they change after they have left. It considers how the previous fundamentalist identity is shaped by aspects of church teaching and discipline that are less authoritarian and coercive, and more subtle and widely spread throughout the church body. That is, individuals are understood as not only subject to a form of judgment, but also exercise it, with everyone seemingly complicit in maintaining the stability of the church organisation. This book provocatively illustrates that the reasons for leaving an evangelical Christian church may be less about what happens outside the church in terms of the lures and attractions of the secular world, and more about the experience within the community itself.

Leaving Christian Fundamentalism and the Re-Construction of Identity by Josie McSkimming was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in November 2016. The ISBN for Leaving Christian Fundamentalism and the Re-Construction of Identity is 9781472480309.
