“In revealed religion..the community does not constitute death as its organising principle. [It] is able to mourn fully, to recognise..death as part of itself. ..There is no..returning to a state of innocence that immediately unites God with the religious community.” – Brent Adkins – ..Death is no longer the absolute master. Death is seen as part of the work and everyday life of the community. ..It understands itself as having fallen from a state of innocence. – B.Adkins
