Subverting Global Myths

Full Product Description

It is a misapprehension that only the uninformed masses believe in myths and that power brokers, media moguls, leading scientists, financial tycoons, political luminaries and intellectual elites do not. The myths that the ruling classes believe may be more sophisticated, but they are myths nonetheless.

These public, large-scale narratives engage our imaginations and shape the way we experience the world. They are the stories that tell us what is important to know and how to live.

Subverting Global Myths takes issue with six areas of contemporary global discourse terrorism, religious violence, human rights, multiculturalism, science and postcolonialism where powerful myths energize and mobilize considerable public funding and influence contemporary debate. It will thoroughly engage thoughtful, critical readers who are concerned about the public issues that shape our increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.

Ramachandra offers us a subversive book. If you prefer not to be provoked and challenged, do not read it. Based on solid biblical and theological ground, and on a meticulous and careful reading of cultural trends, this Sri Lankan theologian helps us to identify the global myths that hold us captive and look at them from a critical Christian perspective.

Subverting Global Myths by Vinoth Ramachandra was published by SPCK in July 2008 and is our 39287th best seller. The ISBN for Subverting Global Myths is 9780281060238.
