response to chapter five of Peter Berger’s The Sacred Canopy: Elements of a Sociological Theory of Religion,

Briefly reflect on something that surprised you in a particular reading. You may reflect on anything at all, but you must be specific. Provide an occasional quotation, or a page number to direct us to what excited you. Perhaps you were surprised by Egypt’s political system,or by the different forms of secularism in state politics. Or maybe you were totally unaware of a particularstate’s attempt to curtail a religious community through the law. Whatever it is, share it with us and elaborate on it a bit. A few sentences will not suffice. Three paragraphs, single spaced. Attached is the chapter that reposnse is to, no outside sources allowed.
