God Is Red: A Native View Of Religion, 30th Ann...

In the 30th anniversary edition of this controversial volume, Native American scholar Vine Deloria, Jr., offers readers a salutary overview of Native American spirituality as an alternative to Christianity. After tracing a brief history of the "Indian Movement" and making reference to novels, anthologies ,and books on Indian religion, this lawyer, who once attended the Lutheran School of Theology in Rock Island, Illinois, faults Christians for (1) their inability to think in terms of space (hence they do not have a good natural theology), (2) their cramped concepts of history focused on the story of the Jews and the life of Jesus, (3) their fear of death, (4) their failure to integrate faith into every aspect of life, (5) their lack of community, and (6) their internal dissension.

God Is Red: A Native View of Religion, 30th Ann...

Book DescriptionFirst published in 1972, Vine Deloria Jr.'s God Is Red remains the seminal work on Nativereligious views, asking new questions about our species and our ultimate fate. Celebrating threedecades in publication with a special 30th-anniversary edition, this classic work reminds us tolearn "that we are a part of nature, not a transcendent species with no responsibilities to the naturalworld." It is time again to listen to Vine Deloria Jr.'s powerful voice, telling us about religious lifethat is independent of Christianity and that reveres the interconnectedness of all living things.

These are among the key findings of more than 30,000 face-to-face interviews conducted across 18 countries and Puerto Rico by the Pew Research Center between October 2013 and February 2014. The survey encompasses nearly all Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries and territories stretching from Mexico through Central America to the southern tip of South America. Due to fieldwork constraints and sensitivities related to polling about religion, Cuba could not be included; it is the only Spanish-speaking country in Latin America that was not polled. 041b061a72
