Jamie Smith on A/theism

My “greatest book read in 2010” award (if there was one) must go to James K.A. Smith’s Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation (Baker Academic, 2009). I will leave a full review of it, and why I think it’s so significant, for another time. However, I was interested to discover that there is an online video of Jamie Smith talking about the place of religion in Postmodernity/Postmodern Philosophy on this site. HT to Paul Fromont (once again!)

  1. I’m with you on the book of the year, it was a great read and really helped me understand the significance of the daily offices and sacraments. However whenever I hear the argument that the New Atheists are nothing but the last cry of modernity I can’t help but feel we may be sticking our head in the sand and hoping it will blow over? This may be because the first time I heard it the person saying it was using it as an excuse for us not to engage?

  2. Paul, more than happy to help. Thanks for dropping by my blog the other day and leaving a comment. I agree with you in respect of Jamie’s book – its a gem! He’s one of those thinker/writers I really resonate with – hence, most of his books (authored / co-authored by him) reside in my library.

    All the very best for 2011

    Paul
