How equipped are today s religions to cope with secular dilemmas and out of what resources can they respond? Kenneth Cragg begins his exploration of these questions by reviewing several of the ironies present in the secular/religious situation. Then follows a discussion of culture, focusing on sexuality as the core of cultural formation in birth, the family, and human relationships. Cragg analyzes the shape of the religious mind as perpetuated in the time and flux of the centuries and, in conclusion, considers the question: In what terms can Christian finality hold in a climate of irreligion, pluralism, and competition from other authorities of revelation? Kenneth Cragg has written widely on the theology and history of Islam, Middle East Christianity, Christian theology, and interreligious dialogue. In addition to teaching in universities and graduate schools of theology in Great Britain, the Middle East, and North America, he also served as Assistant Bishop of the Anglican Church in Jerusalem.
