This book offers a mature assessment of themes preoccupying David Martin over some fifty years, complementing his book On Secularization. Deploying secularisation as an omnibus word bringing many dimensions into play, Martin argues that the boundaries of the concept of secularisation must not be redefined simply to cover aberrant cases, as when the focus was more on America as an exception rather than on Europe as an exception to the 'furiously religious' character of the rest of the world.
David Alfred Martin, FBA (30 June 1929 – 8 March 2019) was a British sociologist and Anglican priest who studied and wrote extensively about the sociology of religion. David Martin was born on 30 June 1929, the son of a "between-maid" from Dorset and a groom from Hertfordshire who became a chauffeur and then a black cab driver in London and preached regularly at Hyde Park. He was brought up in a revivalist family and attended Barnes Methodist Church.
Using the Gore Lectures from 1977 and the Ferguson Lectures of 1976 as his basis, Professor Martin explores the idea of Christian symbols and 'the complicated relationship between Christianity and secularization' in his work The Breaking of the Image. He also concerns himself with liturgy and form and how Christian symbols relate to social change. Based on his cross-disciplinary knowledge of theology, sociology, and history, Martin is able to approach his subject with a broad view and discover points of correspondence and divergence.
