Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Future of Religion: Toward a Reconciled Society presents the table of contents, acknowledgements and a preface. The book is an expression of the work from various academic disciplines and life experiences of international scholars who have wrestled with the question concerning the future of religion in the transitional, socio-historical context of the globalization of Modern society. It is comprised of 20 chapters, authored by 18 scholars from 8 countries, that has been developed from edited papers that were presented during the international course on 'The Future of Religion' from 2001-2006. The book critically analyzes and grounds the contemporary discourse on the future of religion in the past relationship of religion and society under the heading of 'Historical Foundations'. Denis Janz explores the experience of the "heaviness of the [historical] past" in terms of a collective or national sense of guilt.

Keywords: Denis Janz; globalization; reconciled society; religion; theology
