Religious organizations are at their core about creating certainty. But what happens when groups lose control of their destiny? Whether it leads to violence (as in the case of Aum Shinrikyo's in 1995), or to non-violent innovations, as found in minority religions following the death of their founders or leaders (as in the case of the Worldwide Church of God), uncertainty and insecurity can lead to great change in the mission and even teachings of religious groups. Minority Religions and Uncertainty brings together an international team of contributors from a range of perspectives to explore the uncertainty faced by new and minority religious movements as well as non-religious fringe groups.
