Utilitarian Religion

T. M. Luhrmann explains why church is good for you. I think for believers there are even better reasons (categories like sin and resurrection are among those reasons), and this seems a rather thin reason for religion. Now most of what she observes is true, at least in general, but we know Christianity doesn’t always work. However, I loved the author’s recent book When God Talks Back…highly recommended.
