Millions of Americans, an estimated 40 percent of our population, are flocking to support groups of all kinds-from AA to abuse prevention to pray fellowships. Why, and with what consequences? In a landmark study of one thousand small groups around the country, Robert Wuthnow of Princeton University, a leading interpreter of American religion and culture, examines the growth of the support group movement and its meaning in our national life. Wuthnow shows that this movement is effecting a quiet revolution-one that is dramatically changing our relationship to the self, to the community, and to the sacred.
