Summary
This book examines millennialist faith in the twenty-first century. Through his ethnographic study of the fishermen and their religious beliefs, the author speaks to larger debates about religious radicalism, materiality, economy, language, and the symbolic. These debates also call into question assumptions about the decline of religion in modern industrial societies. By chronicling how these individuals experience life as "enchanted, " this book explores the global processes of religious conversion, economic and environmental crisis, and political struggle. --from back cover
