Consumption and Religious Community_A New Interpretation and Representation of Religious Moralism in Consumption
This paper explores to what extent consumerism influences the representation and moral structure of religious community. Following the hermeneutic approach, this interpretative research investigates how a group of young Christians in Hong Kong make sense of their personal and collective religious experiences and how these experiences structure the construction of an imagined community through symbolic consumption. This entire study aims to enrich current understanding of the interrelationship between consumption and religious community formation.
