■ 概要
  My chapter, "How Jonathan Edwards Unmasks Religious Hypocrisy," is about a set of signs that often reveals the presence of religious hypocrisy, such as an overriding concern for emotional and mystical experiences rather than moral life and character. Self-centeredness also leads the hypocrite away from the realm of objective truth and rationality. Finally, the religious hypocrite embraces a customized theology, fashioning a deity and a religious life that suits him. Edwards would probably see the mystical and psychotherapeutic trends of the contemporary world as an encouragement to narcissistic religious hypocrisy.
