Modernity has in fact changed the social and psychological environment of religion. In the present text Peter L. Berger seeks to spell out the conditions for such conversation to be both completely open and yet faithful to the core of a tradition. He proposes a basis for useful dialogic engagement among different religious traditions.
Modernity does not necessarily lead to a decline of religion, but to the loss of its taken-for-granted character. Modernity has in fact changed the social and psychological environment of religion. Conversation between adherents of different religious traditions has become an inevitability, not a luxury. In the present text Peter L. Berger seeks to spell out the conditions for such conversation to be both completely open and yet faithful to the core of a tradition. He proposes a basis for useful dialogic engagement among different religious traditions.
