Note
"This book analyses the power that religion wields upon the minds of individuals and communities and explores the predominance of language in the actual practice of religion. Through an investigation of the diverse forms of religious language available oral traditions, sacred texts, evangelical prose and national rhetoric used by faith-insiders such as missionaries, priests or religious leaders who play the communicators role between the sacred and the secular the essays in the volume reveal the dependence of religion upon language, demonstrating how religion draws strength from a past that is embedded in narratives, infusing the sacred language with political power.The book combines broad theoretical and normative reflections in contexts of original, detailed and closely examined empirical case-studies. Drawing upon resources across disciplines, the book will be of interest to scholars of religion and religious studies, linguistics, politics, cultural studies, history, 'sociology' and social anthropology."--Provided by publisher
