The book covers a wide array of subjects, casting light on topics such as the historical encounter of Islam and Christianity, the role of Islam in the Mughal and Ottoman empires, the growth of Islam in Southeast Asia, China, and Africa, the political, economic, and religious challenges of European imperialism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and Islamic communities in the modern Western world.

Romeyn Taylor's "Spirits of the Penumbra: Deities Worshiped in more than one Chinese Pantheon" starts from a distinction between popular religion broadly understood and no less than four forms of worship officially promoted by imperial officials Confucianism, Daoism, Buddhism, and an officially sanctioned form of popular belief.

The period also saw a parallel growth in the sphere of cultural production,as a growing class of consumers benefited from the formation of one of the classic early modern consumer societies. Just as much has been gained by moving beyond the denominationally oriented historiography of an earlier era, as proponents of the "confessionalization" thesis do by discerning common patterns in Catholic and Protestant efforts at reform, there is much to be gained also by looking for common patterns at a deeper historical depth, between Eastern and Western Christianity.

Eve Levin's "False Miracles and Unattested Dead Bodies: Investigations into Popular Cults in Early Modern Russia" deals with eighteenth-century efforts to impose limits on the popular credulity that allowed saints to sprout up in great profusion; though supported in their efforts by Tsar Peter the Great, the churchmen who tried to channel popular belief within canonical rules of scrutiny were not always consistent among themselves, partly because of sharp divisions between men who quite consciously drew their ideas of reform from Protestant or Catholic sources.
