How (Not) to Be Secular is what Jamie Smith calls your hitchhikers guide to the present -- it is both a reading guide to Charles Taylors monumental work A Secular Age and philosophical guidance on how we might learn to live in our times.

Taylors landmark book A Secular Age (2007) provides a monumental, incisive analysis of what it means to live in the post-Christian present -- a pluralist world of competing beliefs and growing unbelief. Jamie Smiths book is a compact field guide to Taylors insightful study of the secular, making that very significant but daunting work accessible to a wide array of readers.

Even more, though, Smiths How (Not) to Be Secular is a practical philosophical guidebook, a kind of how-to manual on how to live in our secular age. It ultimately offers us an adventure in self-understanding and maps out a way to get our bearings in todays secular culture, no matter who we are -- whether believers or skeptics, devout or doubting, self-assured or puzzled and confused. This is a book for any thinking person to chew on.
