Meaty and thoroughly enjoyable, albeit not a casual read. I value Taylor's ability to integrate historical event and cultural import. He does us a good service in acknowledging that even clergy (whatever the religious persuasion) rarely think theologically and sets out a definition of "religion" as a schemata that is constantly teetering between stability and flux.

“When understood in all its rich complexity, religion does not simply provide secure foundations but destabilizes every type of religiosity by subverting the oppositional logic of eitherjor.” 0 likes
