Abstract

Religion's prominence in this era of globalization is increasingly difficult to deny, and secular institutions are making significant adjustments to the new realities. The U.S. military is one such organization coming to grips with the post-secular world it inhabits. Indeed, we are told, engaging war's spiritual dynamics has become a military necessity. This essay considers the shifting contours of this post-secular landscape and the attendant ethical challenges for a consummately secular organization that rather suddenly discovers the relevance of religion to its mission and operating areas.
