This is an accessible account of religion and religious thinking. The text addresses problems, such as the flourishing of religion in popular culture alongside the "religious" duty many feel to be critics of religion. The book investigates the roots and foundations of religious culture and asks key questions such as: " What do I love when I love my God?"; "What can Star Wars tell us about the contemporary use of religion?"; "Are we always trying to find a way of saying 'God be with you'?"; and "What is it to perform an act 'in the name of God'?" The uses of religion in modern times are explored and the text asks why it is for many people, a source of moral guidance in a postmodern, nihilistic age. Drawing on contemporary images of religion, such as Robert Duvall's "The Apostle", the author also provides various insights into religious fundamentalism and examines what it means and why it is happening.
