Acclaimed student and sociologist Peter L. Berger examines faith in twentieth-century Western society, exploring the social nature of data and its impression on spiritual trust. utilizing 5 symptoms obvious in traditional life—order, play, desire, damnation, and humor—Berger demands a rediscovery of the supernatural as an important, wealthy size of humanity.
