|The No-Nonsense Guide to
Religion considers how religion has shaped our culture, and how our culture
is shaping religion today.
"Religion" is a term that the media often use without any clarification. But it is a loaded word that encompasses hundreds of different beliefs. Religion can be seen as a source of war and peace, love and hate, dialogue and narrow-mindedness. The globalization of communications has raised awareness of religious conversion, with more people than ever before belonging to a different religious community than their parents.
This No-Nonsense Guide picks its way carefully through the minefield that is modern religion. It takes a clear-eyed view of the role of spirituality in human life and of its sometimes negative effects.
" The No-Nonsense Guide to Religion takes the debate [about religion an secularism] to a higher, more rewarding and insightful level. It provides a balanced and astute account of the major religions of the world and their role in the daily lives of believers who constitute most of the globe's inhabitants. It's an invitation for progressive politics to work hand in hand with religion to shape a better and more viable future for the whole of humanity." Ziauddin Sardar, writer and broadcaster
