Religion and the Variety of Culture: A Study in Origin and Practice
Gracewing Publishing, 1996 - 87 pagine
Here is a provocative analysis of culture in all of its variety, including especially the relationship of religion and Christianity to culture.
Lamin Sanneh advocates reconnecting religion and Christianity to culture, realizing that humanity without a sense of transcendence cannot really achieve a fulfillment that is anything but "murky self-centeredness."
According to Sanneh, in light of the exigencies of postmodern times world Christianity would do well to embrace an alternative vision - one of global neighborliness - and then effectively model that vision as the new humanity for the twenty-first century and beyond.
