Singapore Chronicles – Religion

Singapore is one of the most religiously diverse countries in the world. This feature gives multiple layers and combinations of richness, hybridity, complexity and fluidity to its landscape of religious communities, orientations and interactions. This book provides an overview of Singapore’s religious diversity and focuses on some of its contemporary complexities. While recognising the positive – vibrancy and richness in religious diversity – it highlights problems and challenges posed by some religious trends and developments. The book foregrounds three religious/faith traditions and orientations – Islam, Christianity and secularism – which have become significant in recent times. It highlights some challenges of growing religiosity and religious diversity, assesses how they can be expected to evolve in the near future, and discusses how they might be navigated.
