Restless Gods: The Renaissance of Religion in Canada

Author: Reginald W. Bibby

The surprising news about religion and spirituality in Canada. Until recently, the consensus opinion in the media, in our schools, and even in our churches is that people have lost interest in organized religion and that Christianity is in decline. Canada’s foremost tracker of religious opinion, sociologist Reginald W. Bibby, has some surprising news: there are signs of significant religious rejuvenation in Canada. Drawing on his extensive and wide-ranging national surveys spanning almost 30 years, Bibby suggests that ‘the gods are restless’: secularization has been exaggerated, mainline Protestants and Catholics are joining the Evangelicals in showing signs of revitalization, and a surprising number of adults and teens indicate that they pray and have experiences of God.
