RADICALISM
Religious resurgence is simply a renewed interest and participation in spiritual matters by a growing segment of society. “Resurgence” means, “to rise again” and is closely connected with revivalism or a religious awakening and/or enthusiasm. This, in turn, is commonly associated with fundamentalism or a return to foundational or original beliefs, values and principles. All three terms are in themselves value neutral but have come to be regarded as synonymous with religious radicalism or an overturning of existing norms, structures and practices. This has given the impression that the modern revitalization of faith in God is among the primary causes of civil conflict and threatening rather than redemptive and celebratory in nature.
