This book deals with interrelationships between literature and religion to examine the idea of the person in relation to the politics of culture. Throughout, Patrick Grant maintains that ideology separates value from fact, spirit from matter, and this separation depersonalises. In a series of chapters dealing with body, city, others, freedom, and transgression, and through a selection of texts from the New Testament to the Northern Irish poets, he shows how literature, spirituality, and postmodern culture might jointly liberate persons in a society committed to democratic process and socialist values.
