About this item

Assuming that religion emerges from the basic experiential conditions of human life, the author of this book proposes a maximalist approach rather than a reductionist approach to understand religion. The book analyzes religion in four interdependent realms of experience--the natural, the socio-cultural, the psychological, and the mystical-- and offers a way of seeing religion as providing resources for orientation and transformation in the various realms of human experience. The author draws on the ideas of Ann Taves, Ole Riis, Linda Woodhead, Geir Afdal, and Thomas A. Tweed. Distributed by Coronet Books. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
