Abstract

This book studies the concepts and philosophies governing globalized faiths and is a convincing narrative of how global religions have moved beyond spirituality to become key players in the world of welfare, education, economics, politics, and international relations. It explores six religious movements that operate transnationally. The book discusses Islamic, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu transnational movements. The case studies take the reader into the inner worlds of ISIS, Gülen-Hizmet, Islamic Relief (Islamic); Hillsong (Christian); Ciji (Buddhist) and BAPS (Hindu) - revealing the underpinning theologies, practises, global logistics and technology of these world-wide faith movements.
