Stephen Ellingson, associate professor of sociology, published a chapter in The New Blackwell Companion to the Sociology of Religion, edited by Bryan S. Turner. 

In the chapter titled "New Research on Megachurches: Non-Denominationalism and Sectarianism" Ellingson reviews the history of megachurches globally, discusses explanations for the emergence, rapid development, and success of megachurches, and argues that the rise of megachurches has initiated a new phase in the restructuring of American Proteststantism, in particular.
