The secular city; secularization and urbanization in theological perspective by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( Book )
83 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its initial publication in 1965, The Secular City has been hailed as a classic for its nuanced exploration of the relationships among the rise of urban civilization, the decline of hierarchical, institutional religion, and the place of the secular within society. Now, half a century later, this international best seller remains as relevant as when it first appeared. The book's arguments--that secularity has a positive effect on institutions, that the city can be a space where people of all faiths fulfill their potential, and that God is present in both the secular and formal re
The feast of fools : a theological essay on festivity and fantasy by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( Book )
30 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author defines festivity as the capacity for genuine revelry and joyous celebration and fantasy as the faculty for envisioning radically alternative life situations. He proposes that a revival of both feast and fantasy will rejuvenate modern spirtuality by imitating the medieval Feast of Fools, where spirtual life was celebrated while political church traditions were socially mocked and evaluated

Fire from heaven : the rise of pentecostal spirituality and the reshaping of religion in the twenty-first century by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( Book )
20 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 1,557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Unlike traditional Protestant and Catholic churches, whose memberships are dwindling, pentecostalism, the most experiential branch of Christianity, has become the fastest-growing form of worship on Earth, and, if present trends continue, could surpass even Catholicism by the turn of the century. From its obscure beginnings a hundred years ago in a tiny black church on Azusa Street in Los Angeles it has grown, especially in the past two decades, to over 410 million people worldwide, becoming the dominant expression of Christian worship in mega-cities throughout the world, from New York and Mexico City to Seoul, Korea. In an effort to understand its extraordinary appeal Harvey Cox has traveled the world to speak and worship with pentecostal congregations on four continents, and he has come to the conclusion that this explosion of spirituality represents a tidal change in what religion itself is and what it means to people."--BOOK JACKET

The persistence of religion comparative perspectives on modern spirituality by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the nineteenth century, Nietzsche famously announced that God was dead. In the twentieth century, an increasing reliance on science and technology led to a widespread rejection of belief on the grounds of its irrationality. Yet for all the skepticism directed towards it, religion has not died. In fact, the opposite has occurred: it has persisted and proliferated. In this wide-ranging dialogue, two leading commentators on religion address - from their different but complementary traditions of Christianity and Buddhism - the continuing appeal of spirituality to people eager to explore fundamental questions of meaning and identity. The authors indicate that science, for all the benefits it has conferred, has limits of explanation. It may be able to show how, but not necessarily why. --BOOK JACKET

Common prayers : faith, family, and a Christian's journey through the Jewish year by Harvey Gallagher Cox ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Harvey Cox, the distinguished Christian theologian and scholar of religion, has a Jewish wife and son. From the Passover meal to the weekly Sabbath candles, from the marriage chuppah to the walls of old Jerusalem, he has shared in the joys and responsibilities of the Jewish faith. Celebrating the Jewish holidays, he has had the opportunity to reflect on the essence of Judaism and its complex relationship to Christianity, an experience that continues to deepen his understanding of his own faith. In Common Prayers, Cox takes readers on an intimate journey through the Jewish year. He illuminates the meanings of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah and the "December madness" of Chanukah and Christmas, as well as those of less well known holidays such as Sukkot and Simchat Torah and of events such as death and marriage. Describing in accessible language the holidays' personal, historical, and spiritual significance and the lessons they offer us, Cox brings a unique perspective to this encounter with a faith not his own. As seen through his eyes, the Jewish holidays become a wellspring of discovery and reflection."--BOOK JACKET
