Until recently, that has summed up the consensus opinion in the media, in our schools, and even in our churches about the state of religious belief and practice in Canada today. Canada's foremost tracker of religious opinion, sociologist Reginald W. Bibby, has some surprising news: there are signs of significant religious rejuvenation in Canada, both inside and outside the churches. Drawing on his extensive and wide-ranging national surveys spanning the years from 1975-2002, Bibby suggests that "the gods are restless": secularization has been exaggerated, mainline Protestants and Catholics are beginning to join the Evangelicals in showing signs of revitalization, and a surprising number of adults and teens indicate that they pray and have an experience of God. "Restless Gods explodes canadians' misconceptions and myths about religion, spirituality and themselves.
