Description

This study of the religious landscape of Indianapolis -- the summative volume of the Lilly Endowment's Project on Religion and Urban Culture conducted by the Polis Center at IUPUI -- aims to understand religion's changing role in public life. The book examines the shaping of religious traditions by the changing city. It sheds light on issues such as social capital and faith-based welfare reform and explores the countervailing pressures of decentering -- the creation of multiple (sub)urban centers -- and civil religion's role in binding these centers into one metropolis.Polis Center Series on Religion and Urban Culture -- David J.
