The post-war generation and establishment religion : cross-cultural perspectives( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For those who make up what we now call "the Baby-Boom generation," World War II is more than a backdrop to history: It signifies the beginning of a new world. Amidst dramatic changes in international political and economic systems, the advent of television, and cultural pluralism, this generation has come to take for granted new perspectives on the meaning and purpose of family, politics, education, and, most notably, religion. This is the first book to offer a comparative analysis of the impact this post-war generation has had on Christianity around the world. Taking a cross-cultural approach, the contributors examine ten developed countries, including England, France, Germany, Australia, and the United States, and explore the ways baby boomers have helped reshape and redefine "establishment religions"--That is, the dominant, primarily Christian institutions. Looking at the Church of England, the Catholic Church in France, the Lutheran Church in Sweden, and other institutions, the authors of the study find similarities with the ways baby boomers have affected religion in various countries. Yet the peculiar and historical context of each nation has fostered some striking differences as well. The researchers' conclusions are broad and far-reaching, shedding light on the fate of religion both in countries now modernizing and in those countries moving through the modern to the postmodern. Sociologists, historians, and scholars of religion will profit from the insights put forth here on religion in a postmodern context

Being there : culture and formation in two theological schools by Jackson W Carroll( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a close-up look at theological education in the United States today. The authors' goal is to understand the ways in which institutional culture affects the outcome of the educational process. To that end they undertake ethnographic studies of two seminaries - one evangelical and one mainline Protestant. These studies, written in a lively journalistic style, make up the first part of the book and offer fascinating portraits of two very different intellectual, religious, and social worlds." "The authors then go on to examine these disparate environments and suggest how, in each case, school culture acts as an agent of educational change." "This unique and practical study should be of great interest to both students and scholars of American religion, to theological educators, and to educators generally."--Jacket
