Sam Jordison's top 10 books on cults and religious extremists | Books | The GuardianI'll read about the cult of saints till I'm dead. Just about every aspect of modern life is reflected, kaleidoscopic, in stories of horrific suffering and devotion hundreds and thousands of years old. This short book is my favorite recommendation for both newcomers and experts. It's unique because Colin Dickey is not a theologian but a writer of true stories about ghosts and conspiracy theories, so his broad macabre history is written with the detached, agnostic bemusement anyone will appreciate. Just lots of sobbing and stabbing and people standing for years on flagpoles.

A new religious movement NRM is a religious , ethical, or spiritual group or community with practices of relatively modern origins. NRMs may be novel in origin or they may exist on the fringes of a wider religion, in which case they will be distinct from pre-existing denominations. Academics identify a variety of characteristics which they employ in categorizing groups as new religious movements. The term is broad and inclusive, rather than sharply defined. New religious movements are generally seen as syncretic, employing human and material assets to disseminate their ideas and worldviews, deviating in some degree from a society's traditional forms or doctrines, focused especially upon the self, and having a peripheral relationship that exists in a state of tension with established societal conventions. An NRM may be one of a wide range of movements ranging from those with loose affiliations based on novel approaches to spirituality or religion to communitarian enterprises that demand a considerable amount of group conformity and a social identity that separates their adherents from mainstream society. Use of the term NRM is not universally accepted among the groups to which it is applied.
