Scanned by: Marisa Vitols over 9 years ago
For the October, 1980 issue of The Futurist Ted Peters, associate professor of systematic theology at the Pacific Lutheran Seminary (Berkeley, CA), wrote a piece titled, "The Future of Religion in a Post-Industrial Society." He hypothesizes that as civilization becomes increasingly post-industrial, religion will most likely be treated as a commodity to be "acquired and disposed of according to tastes and whims." Read a lengthier excerpt of this piece and the interesting comment thread that follows on this blog.
