In the classic sociological literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (including the works of Hegel, Marx, Toennies, Freud, Durkheim, and Weber) he found insights about the social factors shaping religious consciousness, and about how religion can function in an ideological fashion to reinforce social structures, or as a critical force for social change. Here in this lucid reading of the classics of sociology, Baum offers an essential guide for students of theology, social theory, and anyone interested in the vital, if ambivalent, relation between religion and society.About the Author:Gregory Baum is professor emeritus of theology at McGill University
