FRANK FUREDI CULTURE OF FEAR PDF

But what does all this fear do to our moral lives as it forms or deforms our character and our judgment? Drawing on Christian scripture and tradition, Following Jesus in a Culture of Fear articulates a response to fear that resists an ethic of security in favor of fostering an ethic of risk. The Christian virtues of hospitality, peacefulness, and generosity are presented as the way to defeat the counter-virtues of suspicion, preemption, and control. Pastors, students, and lay people will find this unique book both accessible and intriguing. We live in a time when this biblical refrain cannot be repeated too often.
