About "Faith and Praxis in the Postmodern Age"
We live in a culture which has broadly rejected the possibility of absolute belief in one over-riding 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 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 postmodern dilemma is addressed in this collection of essays by an 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? The writers explore ways in which the question of religion impacts on political life in Britain, South Africa and Israel. Other issues covered include gender, sexuality, ecology and Buddhist belief and practice.
