This book is a smart, intelligent guide to navigating today's culture. How (Not) to Be Secular is what Jamie Smith calls "your hitchhiker's guide to the present." It is both a reading guide to Charles Taylor's monumental work A Secular Age and philosophical guidance on how we might learn to live in our times. Taylor's landmark book A Secular Age (2007) provides a monumental, incisive analysis of what it means to live in the post-Christian present -- a pluralist world of competing beliefs and growing unbelief. Jamie Smith's book is a compact field guide to Taylor's insightful study of the secular, making that very significant but daunting work accessible to a wide array of readers. Even more, though, Smith's How (Not) to Be Secular is a practical philosophical guidebook, a kind of how-to manual on how to live in our secular age. It ultimately offers us an adventure in self-understanding and maps out a way to get our bearings in today's secular culture, no matter who "we" are -- whether believers or skeptics, devout or doubting, self-assured or puzzled and confused. This is a book for any thinking person to chew on. - Publisher.… (mer)

Treats source with dignity, yet willing to disagree with Taylor at times. Willing now to "take up and read" Taylor's monument.

Waypoints for navigating out of the Sargasso sea of late modernism. Welcome! ( )

I told a friend (and reading partner and fellow pastor) midway through the book that I was grateful for this book because now I don't feel the need to make my way past the place in Taylor where I got stuck 5 years ago. But by the end of the book, that's not quite true. There's definitely nuance missing at points. This was my first JKA Smith, and I look forward to reading his Cultural Liturgies, even as I wonder how his Reformed-ness will rub in friction against my strong non- (or even anti-)Reformedness. ( )

This was helpful as a brief review and introduction to a much longer book. It made me aware of Charles Taylor and I've now ordered the "original" to go more in-depth. ( )

This book is far too short, but it did its job: give me a desire to read the 900 page book. I need to read the 900 page book to get the detail. Excellent summary for someone who knows nothing about the original. I'll let you know how it compares once we get the source. ( )
