Religion in Public Life by Professor Roger Trigg

Book Description

How far can religion play a part in the public sphere, or should it be only a private matter? Roger Trigg examines this question in the context of today's pluralist societies, where many different beliefs clamour for attention. Should we celebrate diversity, or are matters of truth at stake? In particular, can we maintain our love of freedom, while cutting it off from religious roots? In societies in which there are many conflicting beliefs, the place of religion is a growing political issue. Should all religions be equally welcomed in the public sphere? Favouring one religion over others may appear to be a failure to treat all citizens equally, yet for citizens in many countries their Christian heritage is woven into their way of life. Whether it is the issue of same-sex marriages, the right of French schoolgirls to wear Islamic headscarves, or just the public display of Christmas trees, all societies have to work out a consistent approach to the public influence of

Books By Author Professor Roger Trigg

Roots of Religion by Professor Roger Trigg Roots of Religion, Hardback (December 2014)

The cognitive science of religion is a new discipline that looks at the roots of religious belief in the cognitive architecture of the human mind. This book deals with the philosophical and theological implications of the cognitive science of religion which grounds religious belief in human cognitive structures: religious belief is 'natural'.

Religious Diversity by Professor Roger Trigg Religious Diversity, Paperback (April 2014)

Religious Diversity examines whether believing in a religion's truth increases intolerance and how the existence (and growth) of multiple religions affects political societies.

Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture by Professor Roger Trigg Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture, Hardback (January 2014)

Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical and religious values which shape the contemporary moral vision-a vision that is often at odds with Christian convictions. This book critically examines those values.

Equality, Freedom, and Religion by Professor Roger Trigg Equality, Freedom, and Religion, Paperback (January 2013)

How far should religious practices be curtailed in pursuit of other social goals, such as equality and the removal of discrimination? This book reasons that religious freedom is one of our most precious freedoms, and essential to democracy, drawing on examples from across the Western world.
