  • A God of One's Ownby Ulrich Beck; Rodney Livingstone

    Wiley 2014; US$ 24.95 US$ 21.62

    Religion posits one characteristic as an absolute: faith. Compared to faith, all other social distinctions and sources of conflict are insignificant. The New Testament says: ?We are all equal in the sight of God'. To be sure, this equality applies only to those who acknowledge God's existence. What this means is that alongside the abolition of class... more...

  • In Defense of Religious Moderationby William Egginton

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 34.99

Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, many branches of Christianity, not least the Catholic... more...
