The newly minted Berggruen prize awardee, Charles Taylor, towers as one of the most significant thinkers of our time. His monumental and magisterial A Secular Age recalls and diagnoses our present secularized “social imagination.” Yet this 900-paged tome can daunt any reader to dismiss such a ground-breaking work. Therefore, James K.A. Smith has done a tremendous service by composing an abridged aid to track along with Taylor’s unmatched thought progression. This digestible 140-paged book was never meant to replace A Secular Age, but rather provide a taste and a glimpse.
