Religion and knowledge : sociological perspectives by Elisabeth Arweck( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 libraries worldwide
This book addresses to relationship between religion and knowledge from a sociological perspective, taking both religion and knowledge as phenomena located within ever changing social contexts. It builds on historical foundations, but offers a distinctive focus on the changing status of religious phenomena at the turn of the twenty-first century. Including critical engagement with live debates about intelligent design and the 'new atheism', this collection of essays brings recent rsearch on religious movements into conversation with debates about socialisation, reflexivity and the changing capacity of social institutions to shape human identities. Contributors examine religion as an institutional context for the production of knowledge, as a form of knowledge to be transmitted or conveyed and as a social field in which controversies about knowledge emerge. -- Book Jacket

Christianity and the university experience : understanding student faith by Mathew Guest( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
What impact does the experience of university have on Christian students? Are universities a force for secularisation? Is student faith enduring, or a passing phase? Universities are often associated with a sceptical attitude towards religion. Many assume that academic study leads students away from any existing religious convictions, heightening the appeal of a rationalist secularism increasingly dominant in wider society. And yet Christianity remains highly visible on university campuses and continues to be a prominent identity marker in the lives of many students. Analysing over 4,000 responses to a national survey of students and nearly 100 interviews with students and those working with them, this book examines Christianity in universities across England. It explores the beliefs, values and practices of Christian students. It reveals how the university experience influences their Christian identities, and the influence Christian students have upon university life

Death, life, and laughter : essays on religion in honour of Douglas Davies ( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Birth, death and the rituals that take us from one to the other tell us a lot about humanity and our quest to understand ourselves. It is cross-disciplinary analyses of the life-course that have generated the most profound insights into religion and spirituality, challenging the concepts and methods we commonly use to understand these universal aspects of human experience. Douglas Davies' work is a rare example of this kind of scholarship, challenging the boundaries that separate theology from the social sciences, and that divide academia from public life. This book serves as a tribute to Davies' work, and a critical commentary on the questions that arise from it. Featuring essays by renowned international scholars, this book brings cutting edge research into conversation with ongoing debates about disciplinary difference and the nature of scholarship
