Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this slim and gracefully written volume, Peter Berger continues his call for a many-sided conversation among sociologists, philosophical anthropologists and theologians . . . A Rumor of Angels is splendidly ambitious in its proposals. It stretches the mind considerably.” —Robert J. McNamara, Sociological Analysis
 
“There is both wit and wisdom in Berger’s essay. . . . Certainly his commitment to enduring human truths in a rapidly changing world should provide a model for those who pursue the theological task.” —Lowell D. Streiker, Saturday Review

About the Author

Peter L. Berger (1929–2017) was an award-winning scholar and author and one of the most important modern American sociologists. Berger graduated from Wagner College in New York in 1949 before receiving his master’s degree and doctorate from The New School in New York in 1950 and 1954, respectively. Berger was a professor emeritus of religion, sociology, and theology at the University of Boston and director of the Institute for the Study of Economic Culture, which studies relationships between economic development and sociocultural change. Berger’s works include Invitation to Sociology (1963), The Social Construction of Reality (1966) with Thomas Luckmann, The Sacred Canopy (1967), and A Rumor of Angels (1969).
