Description
The religious impulse is easier to rebrand than to extinguish. Declining levels of church attendance causes us to believe more and more people are abandoning faith. What these polls fail to report is that the marketplace in replacement religion is booming. Religious observance has migrated-- everyday activities are filling in for church attendance. Zahl brings us to a fresh appreciation for the grace of God in all its counter cultural wonder. -- adapted from jacket flap and back cover.
Description
We have a universal yearning, writes David Zahl, not to be happy or respected so much as enough--what religions call "righteous." Today, we look to all sorts of everyday activities--from eating and parenting to dating and voting--for the meaning once provided on Sunday morning. Seculosity takes a thoughtful yet entertaining tour of American "performancism." Ultimately, Zahl brings us to a fresh appreciation for the grace of God in all its counter-cultural wonder.
