Private Needs, Public Selves: Talk about Religion in America
University of Illinois Press, 1997 - 262 Seiten
Polls through the '90s show that many Americans believe the nation is in a period of spiritual decline, yet public religious display and discussion often is deemed politically incorrect. Philosopher John K. Roth feels that more outward sharing of religious beliefs, thoughts, and ideas would bridge the gap between our private needs and our public selves--and would give Americans of differing faiths a common identity. 264 pp. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
