The Secular Faith Controversy: Religion in Three Dimensions
In this volume Edward Bailey sets out what is meant by implicit religion, without the constraints either of total academic impersonality or of excessive compression. He suggests how the concept of implicit religion can help us understand the contemporary scene, other people and ourselves. He also suggests what this approach might add to religious and social studies. The book spans the spectrum from religious studies to ordinary life. Part I describes the issues or problems experienced by practitioners, by leaders and by students of religion while Part II describes some of the main ways in which those three (overlapping) groups have responded to those issues. Part III describes possible alternative responses. Part IV describes the three dimensional model of religion, and Part V, the three dimensions of human and religious experience. Part VI applies this model in the spheres of religion, of the spiritual and of life. Indeed, the three dimensions of the title are the sacred, the holy and the human.
