Written by Kent University Reader in Theology and Religious Studies, Christmas as Religion takes a serious look at the religious nature of Christmas as it is celebrated today. Author, Christopher Deacy, argues that, whilst Christmas may not popularly be churchy these days, there is a lot of space for the spiritual. He foes on to explore the idea that Christmas may be a “secular religion” in itself. Unusually for a book looking at the intersection of faith and culture it concentrates a lot on radio rather than TV or film (although Christmas films do have their own chapter). This will be a fascinating book for anybody looking to engage their academic muscles in the holiday season.
