Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Covering a period of more than 45 years, this is the first collection of the writings of international figure Lloyd Geering--a premier public intellectual who was once found guilty of heresy by the Presbyterian Church. With never-before-seen material, this compendium demonstrates the remarkable consistency in the thought of this increasingly influential thinker. Provocative and heartfelt, this compilation provides a fascinating coverage of the engagement of religion and the modern world.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 383-387) and index.
