Directions for Future Research
James R. Lewis [+]
James R. Lewis is Professor of Philosophy in the School of Philosophy at Wuhan University. He is well-published in the field of new religious movements. His publications and edited volumes include The Oxford Handbook of New Religious Movements, Controversial New Religions (with Jesper Petersen), Scientology, Children of Jesus and Mary (with Nicholas Levine), and, most recently, Violence and New Religious Movements.
In the Afterword, I summarize and discuss the larger implications of this research. What should be done in the future, and to what extent do the studies in this book provide paradigms for future research?
