This rich, broad-reaching anthology explores everyday religious practices across several of the world's religious traditions. Organized thematically—politics, ethics, and aesthetics—the volume examines topics of war, civil religion, science, women and children, capitalism, nature, education, death and dying, visual art, music, sport, humor, film, and more, with engaging and provocative photographs throughout. A useful resource for diverse courses in religious studies and the social sciences.
"This is a superb collection of cutting-edge essays on the complex, 'on the ground' interaction of religions and cultures. Expansive in reach, theoretically challenging, this is a most valuable book." —Ed Linenthal Indiana University
"A good-sense effort to see religion and culture interactively, without denying either their own integrity." —Ivan Strenski University of California, Riverside
