"...if we had finally to put down the western pattern of Christianity as a mere preliminary state to doing without religion altogether, what situation would result for us, for the Church?

"...What is the significance of a Church (church, parish, preaching, Christian life) in a world without religion, I.E. without the temporally-influenced presuppositions of metaphysics, inwardness, and so on?
