Faith and PRAXIS in the Postmodern Ageby Ursula King (Editor)
We live in a culture which has broadly rejected the possibility of absolute belief in one overriding truth. And yet we are surrounded by people who do believe, who indeed are often intensely religious, but believe in different things. This fragmentation of culture is a challenge to all major religions. Given that we have to live together, and given that many of our starting points are the same, even if our interpretations are different, how do we cope with the practical, day-to-day task of living and thriving in the same socio-political environment? This key postmodern dilemma is addressed in this valuable collection of essays by all international team of writers. In a postmodern age, can we believe at all? If we accept that we are no longer unique, where does that leave Christian spirituality? British, South African and Jewish writers explore ways in which the question of religion impacts on political life in Britain, South Africa and Israel.
