Ward combines extraordinary erudition and an equally extraordinary imagination that results in a book of rare intelligence and beauty.

Ward combines extraordinary erudition and an equally extraordinary imagination that results in a book of rare intelligence and beauty. His fresh readings of familiar texts makes the book exciting and profound. Hopefully the book will attract the interest of non-theologians as well as theologians" Stanley Hauerwas. Graham Ward is Professor of Contextual Theology and Ethics at Manhester University, and in this short but stimulating book he provides abundant evidence that he lives up to his title.

True Religion is a magical book that forces us to see the world in which we now live. Part of the prestigious Blackwell Manifestos series. Wiley-Blackwell Manifestos. Ward combines extraordinary erudition and an equally extraordinary imagination that results in a book of rare intelligence and beauty. Ward is an imaginative theologian whom I suspect of having an essentially literary sensibility.

The premise that this book begins from is the implosion of secularism--not the complete end of secular institutions but rather the apprehension of its foundations being terminally undermined. This is a hefty statement that I personally believe can be significantly substantiated as credible being that the traditional secularization thesis has been entirely debunked; however, I am unsure how less sympathetic readers will react to this premise.
If we are to talk about the 'revival' of religion, albeit while recognizing it really never went away, are we to speak of the re-appearance of pre-modern forms of religion? Running along the theme adopted in the introduction of the evolution of ROMEO & JULIET pre-modern to modern to post-modern (Luhrman's) productions, Ward argues convincingly in my opinion that this is not the revival of pre-modern phantasms of religion but rather the emergence of a trangsgressive, excessive and hyper religion. This he notices can be seen in the the kitsch Holy Land Theme Parks, inane fundamentalisms, the commodification of religion through the media, etc.
'True religion', he argues, must not be understood as something fixed but as something created---as it was when true religion first became a matter of unique attention after the Reformation---through social process and cultural permutations. 'True religion' is disseminated across social and historical process in the discursive exchange of signs throughout cultural networks. Such is the general pace of the book which could frustrate some in how it skirts a direct, lucid confrontation with the issue of there being a 'true religion' as the question would be understood by the vast majority of the non-academic public.

"The very truth of each religion will be guaranteed by the other faiths that call it into question." This is probably the funniest line in this quite humorous book filled with preposterously Orphic sounding predictions. When you hear something like that you really must ask what orb this man inhabits, or what delusional skein he is off on. Not that such ever stopped a theological tendency. And that is one of the historical problems with the field. Sadly, the very achievements of tolerance, related to the good side of secular thinking he is wont to denigrate. One of effects of looking at a lot of books in religious studies is that you realize after a while that there is no standard at all. Not even a basic smell test, so to speak, that would weed out pure rot. This man is truly one of the most incredibly reactionary brainstormers I have ever come across. In discussing the unbelievable avariciousness of the Spanish in the New world he actually goes further than any apologist I have EVER read. He opines incredibly that the wild "secular" ambitions, filled with unimaginable cruelties and blunt greed, received a "genuine telos' from some sacred pretext they had. I suppose he imagines that a LaCasian spirit was just roaming around inhabiting every greedy conquistador that appeared there. Let us meditate on this nut's idea. When they brutally pillaged and enslaved and plundered, it could all be summed up by having a sacred "genuine telos." Not even the current Pope went that far when he visited. In fact I cannot think of any writer that I have ever read who has both identified the problem of greedy exapansiveness but then has gone on in addled visionary rhetoric to call it "genuine" anything in that context. But a "genuine telos" in their grim, Spanish Counter-Reformation theatricality is really one of the funniest and most grotesque intellectual misprisions I have ever read. Indeed, the wonderful Spanish Colonial Harquebusier Angels, modeled as they were on the famous military, Esserci, gives a much better sense of how "sacred" it all was. An Angel with gun, that is a "genuine telos." Bang! This "True Religion" could clearly be a victim of one of those armed angelic host.

There is clearly basically no standard for the writing or teaching of religious studies at all. The basics of the artistic tradition associated with those traditions cnofounds them
