Robert Wuthnow

After Heaven: Spirituality in America Since the 1950s

in the last half of the century in America there has been a detectible shift from a church or synagogue spirituality to one that is detached from strong denominational allegiance, and concomitantly a more eclectic search for spiritual living

Wuthnow describes this shift by using the model of a spirituality of dwelling, rooted in church, community, and class values to a spirituality of seeking in which community roots are more flexible or even breaking
