Global resurgence of religion and the failure of the secularization theory model

Below are some resources from Christian and secular sources concerning the global resurgence of religion and the failure of the secularization theory model.

Dr. Todd Johnson at Gordon-Conwell Theological seminary indicated that scholars often use the phrase "the global resurgence of religion" to describe the growth of religious worldview in the world and I found some excellent articles on this subject.
