Following the death of her best friend since high school, a religion professor re-examines her own personal beliefs about god. She realizes she doesn't want to be consoled by a 'transactional' god who exchanges 'right' belief and 'good' behavior for services upon request. She explores the concept of a 'transformative' god, one not aligned with any particular religion, who equips people to adapt to challenges and to spiritually grow from crises and traumas. Out of our experiences, something positive can emerge which helps us to be more empathic toward the suffering of others. Her story demonstrates how grief can be an opportunity to ponder the great mysteries of life and make meaning of our existence. She describes this process as a journey up the side of a mountain to explore how a concept of god both reflects and impacts the way a society approaches its contemporary social problems, such as global warming, poverty, and inequality. In doing so, she encounters a god beyond organized religion.

"What do the religious and spiritual lives of American young people look like as they reach their mid-to-late twenties, enter the full-time job market, and start families? In Back Pocket God, Melinda Lundquist Denton and Richard Flory provide a look beyond conflicting stories that argue that emerging adults are either overwhelmingly leaving religion, or that they are earnest spiritual seekers maintaining a significant place in their lives for religion. Denton and Flory show that while the dominant trend among young people is a move away from religious beliefs and institutions, there is also a parallel trend in which a small, religiously committed group of emerging adults claim faith as an important fixture in their lives. Yet, whether religiously committed or not, emerging adults are increasingly personalizing, customizing and compartmentalizing religion in ways that suit their idiosyncratic desires. For emerging adults, God has become increasingly remote yet is highly personalized to meet their particular needs. In the process, they have transformed their conception of God from a powerful being or force that exists "out there" to their own personal Pocket God--a God that they can carry around with them, but that exerts little power or influence in their daily lives. God functions, in a sense, like a smartphone app-readily accessible, easy to control, and useful but only for limited purposes. Back Pocket God shows the changing relationship between emerging adults and religion, providing a window into the future of religion and more broadly, American culture"--

Organized Religion and Senior's Mental Health exposes the role of religion in moderating the stress generated by the common challenges older Americans face, and what churches do to help them in their times of need. Anthony J. Blasi utilizes previous studies carried out in the community of Nashville, Tennessee to discover the psychological impact of common difficulties and the role of public and private religious activity in lessening symptoms of depression that often occur. He found that a feature of faith communities that holds great potential is the opportunity for older people to minister to others who need practical assistance and understanding, including their own peers. Another important aspect lies in the ability of clergy and lay ministers to organize the older people into faith communities and empower them to engage in valuable work, as demonstrated in the work carried out in almost two hundred Nashville area churches.

Religion ¿ The Defamer of God brings together two perilous topics of conversation ¿ organized religion and politics ¿ and amalgamates them into a timely referenced, scholarly researched, and topically refreshing book unrivaled by any other in its class that reveals how these two subjects have worked in perfect unison to form the modern world to where we are today in regards to global crime, terrorism, political servitude, the curtailment of individual freedom in democracy, a broken global economy, and the suppression of genuine faith and individual free-will. Organized religion is maligning freedom of speech, genuine democracy, the struggling single parent, the oppressed woman, the loving same-sex relationship, the sexually liberated young person, the victim of street crime and global terrorism, the ignored desperate-hearted in our midst, the searcher of truth and justice, and the sincere seeker of faith ¿ while mankind ambivalently acquiesces to the destruction of personal freedom, self-esteem, and its very self. The Defamer of God pulls no punches, and boldly suggests an alternative to both religion and political servitude ¿ that being a personal faith of free will that refuses to be driven any longer by fear, political spin, pious tradition, social expectation, bad history, and political correctness ¿ or alternatively, no false-hearted faith at all, when manifest as forced-upon and traditionally-based religiosity that only creates modern-day dictators, terrorist mass murderers, and self-righteous stumbling blocks to genuine faith in our workplaces, sanctuaries, communities, streets, societies, and nations in the modern 21st Century in which we find ourselves in.

"The Future of Religion in American Politics presents thoughtful, wide-ranging essays by twelve eminent public intellectuals and scholars, offering rich and stimulating views on one of the most divisive issues of our time. Editor Charles W. Dunn and the contributors assess the impact of religion on American politics in four distinct time periods: the founding, the Civil War, the New Deal era, and the modern era. Dunn outlines seven propositions that characterize the interaction of religion and politics during these time periods and describes how and why religion continues to influence politics in America."--BOOK JACKET.
