The contemporary popular or new religious landscape in Sweden - arenas with religious elements outside the established churches - is large and multifaceted. Religion is today expressed in different localities, like retreat centers, health centers and gyms, and can manifest as for example healing, mindfulness, seances, coaching and body therapies. The boundaries between religious and secular arenas are becoming increasingly blurred. The popular or new religiosity is firmly rooted in older traditions, but also expresses creative innovation as a result of globalization, secularism, individualism and the impact of psychological and therapeutic orientations. The book is based on a local study of contemporary popular or new religiosity in the area of Dalarna, Sweden. Religious expression always reflects its time. One of the book's purposes is to explore how religion is perceived in our time and how Christianity has shaped our view of what belongs to the "religion" and what is seen as "superstition". To understand religion it is necessary to study its practical everyday expressions.

"Written in a straightforward and lucid style, the account touches on a large number of topics. It is theoretically informed and reflective throughout, engaging with key concepts like religion, spirituality, globalization, secularization, and individualism. [...]The book places Dalarna on the map of international scholarship preoccupied with religious changes in our time." --Lisbeth Mikaelsson, University of Bergen (Norway), Nova Religio 21(1)
