Granta 93: God’s Own Countries

God still has friends on earth and sometimes (in Texas, Istanbul, Tehran) they and He seem more powerful than ever. It wasn’t supposed to be like this: in the later years of the twentieth century, the secular world imagined that religious belief was everywhere in retreat. God was dying, reason and science had won. Now we’re not so sure.

This Granta explores the varieties of religious belief and their personal, social and political effects, in fiction and non-fiction.
