Summary After ten years of writing in other areas, Peter L. Berger returns to the problem of religion and modernity discussed in his earlier book A Rumor of Angels. In The Heretical Imperative, however, not only is the argument developed further in terms of the challenge to religion of modern secularism, but it is also argued that a new and greatly promising encounter is about to take place between the Judaeo-Christian tradition and the great religions of Asia. Berger discusses the options for religious thought in the contemporary world and suggests that out of the confrontation between different traditions may come a powerful revitalization of religious faith.
Contents Modernity as the universalization of heresy -- Religion: experience, tradition, reflection -- The deductive possibility: reaffirming tradition -- The reductive possibility: modernizing tradition -- The inductive possibility: from tradition to experience -- Between Jerusalem and Benares: the coming contestation of religions.
