Mediating Faiths : Religion and Socio-Cultural Change in the Twenty-First Century Hardback

Edited by Michael Bailey

Description

Religion is living culture. It continues to play a role in shaping political ideologies, institutional practices, communities of interest, ways of life and social identities.

Mediating Faiths brings together scholars working across a range of fields, including cultural studies, media, sociology, anthropology, cultural theory and religious studies, in order to facilitate greater understanding of recent transformations. Contributors illustrate how religion continues to be responsive to the very latest social and cultural developments in the environments in which it exists.

They raise fundamental questions concerning new media and religious expression, religious youth cultures, the links between spirituality, personal development and consumer culture, and contemporary intersections of religion, identity and politics.

Together the chapters demonstrate how belief in the superempirical is negotiated relative to secular concerns in the twenty-first century.
