Texte du rabat

Peter Berger's neoclassical theory of modern social reality is well known in the discipline of sociology. Less known in sociology, but well-recognized in the disciplines of religious studies and theology is his work in the area of religion in modern society. This study breaks new ground by showing the pivotal role that Berger's treatment of religion plays in his sociology. By spotlighting his treatment of religion, the author shows that Berger has successfully challenged the notion that theology and sociology must be at odds with one another in the study of religious studies. Instead, this book demonstrates that Berger's dual-citizenship approach to religion, which draws from his sociological and theological perspectives, provides an effective, methodological model for religious studies, one that is interdisciplinary in nature.
