The post-9/11 age of supermodernity is characterized by an intensification of collective anxiety about the present and future state of the nation and the world. Our psychological and spiritual capacities are pushed to their limits. Through a cognitive-theological approach to the treatment of this intensified anxiety, Kirk Bingaman demonstrates that it is possible and indeed necessary to help those in our care to live meaningfully even in a time of great change and uncertainty.
