Conversion to Modernities by Peter van der Veer

Book Description

Peter van der Veer has gathered together a groundbreaking collection of essays that suggests that conversion to forms of Christianity in the modern period is not only a conversion to modern forms of these religions, but also to religious forms of modernity. Religious perceptions of the self, of community, and of the state are transformed when Western discourses of modernity become dominant in the modern world. This volume seeks to relate Europe and its Others by exploring conversion both in modern Europe and in the colonized world.

Handbook of Religion and the Asian City by Peter van der Veer Handbook of Religion and the Asian City, Hardback (June 2015)

Presents a creative and innovative role of urban aspirations in Asian world cities. This book shows how projects of secularism come up against projects and ambitions of a religious nature, a particular form of contestation that takes the city as its public arena.
