An absorbing and original examination that brilliantly argues that religion is a product of the society from which it springs—featuring illustrations drawn from a variety of primitive, ancient, and contemporary religions.

In this book, Berger that religion is the "sacred canopy" which every human society builds over its world to give it meaning, expanding on theories of knowledge that he first explored (with Thomas Luckmann) in The Social Construction of Reality.
