222 Book Reviews / Journal of Empirical Th eology 22 (2009) 216-224 Ziebertz, H.-G. and Riegel, U. (eds.) (2008). Europe: secular or post-secular? Münster: LIT Verlag. ISBN 978-3-8258-1578-3. Th is volume arose from a meeting entitled Europe as a post-secular Society (EPOS), held at the University of Würzburg in 2004, where scholars of religion from various European countries presented papers on the future of religion in Europe. Th ese papers are collected in this volume. Th e collection begins with a paper by Ziebertz and Riegel, who hosted the meeting, on the concept of postsecularity. Th ey explain this concept as distinct from nonsecu- larity and secularity which, together with postsecularity, constitute three perspectives on the public presence of religion in modern society. Nonsecularity refers to a public presence dominated by a tension between religion and modern society: a position that may result in a retreat from society (religious people living in their own religious sub- cultures) or in a public manifestation of traditional religious beliefs through the media, political activities or even terrorism. Secularity, by contrast, is a view that deprives religion of all social signiﬁ cance: religion has nothing to oﬀ er modern society as such
