Australia is a country rich in religious diversity. While constitutionally speaking Australia is a secular society, waves of immigration over its short history have had a great impact on its religious and cultural make-up. This encyclopaedia is a reference to describe the beliefs, practices and organisation of religion in Australia. It examines religion in several different ways: historical development, belief systems and controversies, as well as the social role each faith plays in modern Australian society. This volume includes entries on Indigenous spirituality, Scientology, Hillsong and Atheism, and features all of the major religions. It includes a section dedicated to current debates and issues in modern-day Australia, such as the place of religion in politics, fundamentalism, religions education and social cohesion.
