Forlagets beskrivelse
This pioneering look at secularism in the postwar Pacific Northwest looks at how the region's non-religious inhabitants consciously rejected the trappings of organized religion and set out on their own spiritual - or non-spiritual - paths.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
The image of a rough frontier - where working men were tempted away from church on Sundays by more profane concerns - was perpetuated by postwar church leaders, who decried the decline of religious involvement on the west coast. The Secular Northwest debunks the myth of a godless frontier, revealing a Pacific Northwest that was serious about its secularity, consciously rejecting the trappings of organized religion but not necessarily spirituality - and not necessarily God. In this pioneering new book, Tina Block challenges notions of feminine piety and spiritual practice, reconceiving the role of religion in the postwar era. Women, families, and middle-class communities all helped to shape Northwest secularism, but the freedom to be religiously uninvolved came at a cost: the rejection of religion often led to family, gender, and class tensions.Drawing on oral histories, census data, newspapers, and archival sources, Block paints irreligion as a dynamic element of Northwest identity, grounded in the region's unique geography, the cultural permeability of the Canada-United States border, the independent spirit of those who called the region home, and their openness to secular ways of experiencing the world.
