Summary
"On the basis of a sweeping statistical analysis of Canadian attitudes, Kurt Bowen assembles a portrait of religion in contemporary Canada. Taking a fairly revisionist stance, he concludes by rejecting the Enlightenment assumption that religious decline in the modern world is both inevitable and beneficial. Christians in a Secular World offers both concrete grounds for reflecting on the question of secularization and an invitation to substantive theoretical reflection."--Jacket
