Description - After Modernity? by James K. A. Smith

After Modernity? addresses a cluster of questions and issues found at the nexus of globalization and religion. This unique volume examines various religious--especially Christian--evaluations of and responses to globalization. In particular, the book considers the links among globalization, capitalism and secularization-and the ways in which "religion" is (or can be) deployed to address a range of "hot button" topics. With cross-disciplinary analyses, the collection argues consistently for the necessity of a "post-secular" evaluation of globalization that unapologetically draws on the resources of Christian faith. The "conservative radicalism" represented in these contributions will resonate with a broad audience of scholars and citizens who seek to put faith into action.
