520    "The growth of the megachurch (generally defined as a 
       regular attendance of over 2,000 people) is undoubtedly 
       one of the most exceptional religious trends of recent 
       times, certainly within the Christian sphere. Spreading 
       from the USA, megachurches have now become common globally
       - reaching different national and cultural contexts. The 
       edited volume Handbook of Megachurches offers a 
       comprehensive account of the subject from various academic
       perspectives: sociology, religious studies, religious 
       history and religious studies among them. Topics covered 
       include: the historical developments and growth, 
       typologies, theology, popular culture, revivalism, social 
       engagement, and the manifestation of megachurches in such 
       countries as Canada, Russia, India and Africa.
