She has the courage to bare her soul and honestlytalk about the false empty comments some religious people make and how she responded to these hurtful statements by people who have not experienced the reality, yet make promises about how God will provide meaning and this all fits into God's divine plan.
green quote
This book is a good read for people who have had it with pious, divine answers that show little understanding of any divine spirituality.
green quote
Pagels presents a religious faith that involves a caring, understanding God who is experienced in caring, compassionate people who know how to listen and feel---without having any need to explain or justify God---and simply become the caring love of God for the one who is suffering.
green quote
She has discovered, experienced and dares to share with us a God who is bigger than any entity we ever imagine, and who loves more deeply than most can understand.
green quote
Very good read!

This objective investigation may include the use of both quantitative methods and qualitative approaches such as participant observation, interviewing, and analysis of archival, historical and documentary materials.Modern academic sociology began with the analysis of religion in Émile Durkheim's 1897 study of suicide rates among Catholic and Protestant populations, a foundational work of social research which served to distinguish sociology from other disciplines, such as psychology.

The usual price range for a sociology of religion books is between $9.94 to $54.03.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this sociology/religion book based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this sociology/religion book now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, ECCO (Ecco Press) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This sociology/religion book has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This sociology/religion book has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this sociology/religion book more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $18.29 $9.50

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has gone up, resulting in a 7.71% price increase.

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this sociology/religion book was $18.29, and the lowest price point was $9.50. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $17.86 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Make sure ECCO is a brand you can trust

ECCO doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other sociology/religion book brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml ECCO Other similar brands: Anchor Simon & Schuster Oxford University Press

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: Anchor, Simon & Schuster, and Oxford University Press. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Simon & Schuster. If you're looking for a sociology/religion book with best reviews, a product from Oxford University Press gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Simon & Schuster I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
