Contemporary Theories of Religion

Introducing Anthropology of Religion

A Critical Companion

Culture to the Ultimate

TEXTBOOK

Edited by Michael Stausberg

Introduction to the Study of Religion

This volume brings together leading scholars of the field to review and discuss fifteen contemporary theories of religion in dialogue with one another. As well as scholars of religion, it also features anthropologists, archaeologists, classicists, evolutionary biologists, philosophers and sociologists. Each chapter provides students with background information on the theoretician, a clear presentation of the basic ideas of the theories, an analysis of the basic assumptions, and a review of previous critiques. The book concludes with a section entitled ‘Where to Go from Here’, in which the authors point to further avenues of theorizing religion.

Hillary Rodrigues, University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada and John S. Harding, Department of Religious Studies, University of Lethbridge “Accessibly, clearly, firmly, and kindly written, this book reliably introduces students to the history of the study of religion, focusing on its most defining approaches and controversies and highlighting the difference between ‘insider’ knowledge of religion(s) and ‘outsider’ study of religion.”—Willi Braun, Director of the Interdisciplinary Program of Religious Studies, University of Alberta, Canada. The authors have crafted this book to familiarize novice students with key concepts and terminology in the study of religion. More advanced students will find a varied array of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches to the field. Topics include: •definitions of religion •perspectives in the study and teaching of religion •how religion began to be studied: traditional perspectives — philosophical and theological •how people experience religion: perspectives in the study of religious consciousness and perception — phenomenological and psychological •studying religion within communities: Social and cultural perspectives — anthropological, sociological, political and economic •judging religion: critical perspectives —feminist approaches, the interaction of popular literature and religion •contextual perspectives — historical and comparative The book encourages students to think critically about the theories and methods presented. Students will find arguments for the strengths and limitations of these approaches, understand connections among religious studies and other intellectual movements, and develop their own ideas of how they might want to go about the study of religion. Summary boxes, a timeline, a glossary and other pedagogic aids help students grasp key concepts, along with a companion website at www.sastor.com.

Jack Eller, Metropolitan State College of Denver, USA “One of the most engaging, comprehensive, and compelling overviews of anthropology of religion ever published. Eller successfully integrates and interprets a wide array of ethnographic information, giving ample attention to both past contributions and contemporary perspectives.” —Stephen D. Glazier, Graduate Professor of Anthropology and Geography, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Written by an experienced teacher, this basic introduction to the anthropology of religion explores key contemporary issues such as: definitions, theories, beliefs, symbols and language, and behavior.

The Routledge Companion to the Study of Religion Edited by John Hinnells “A companion in the very best sense of the word: it provides the reader with excellent guides and mentors to walk alongside on the path to understanding... The result is an intelligent, fairminded, thorough, and cutting-edge exploration of the field of religious studies.”—Wendy Doniger, Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of the History of Religions, University of Chicago USA The Routledge Companion to the Study of Religion is a major resource for everyone taking courses in religious studies. It begins by explaining the most important methodological approaches to religion including psychology, philosophy, anthropology and comparative study — before moving on to explore a wide variety of critical issues, such as gender, science, fundamentalism, ritual, and new religious movements. Written by renowned international specialists, and using clear and accessible language throughout, it is an excellent guide to the problems and questions found in courses.

Unlike other introductions which have tended to focus solely on traditional anthropological areas, this book also shows how to apply an anthropological approach to contemporary world religions, reflecting broader trends.

Introducing Christianity

Introducing Judaism

James R. Adair, Baptist University of the Amèricas in San Antonio, Texas

Eliezer Segal, University of Calgary, Canada

“A very interesting approach that should resonate with many students on introductory courses in religion. Although the idea of basing the analysis of religions on performance is novel at this basic level, it is easy to grasp and will be attractive to students and those coming to religious studies as a discipline for the first time.” —Oliver Leaman, University of Kentucky, USA Introducing World Religions offers an exciting new approach to the study of the world’s religions. Taking its inspiration from performance studies and using an innovative dramatic metaphor, it enables students to explore religious ideas and culture in terms of the players (key figures), the script (foundational texts) and performance (religious practices). The discussion of key players treats human and non-human figures on the world stage, including the principle (God, Dharma, Dao), imaginal figures (angels, baals, bodhisattvas), exceptional persons (founders, prophets, gurus), and historical persons (significant players in the drama of religions). The discussion of the foundational texts includes materials that balance or challenge mainstream texts with an alternative perspective. The section on performance explores non-verbal religious activities such as pilgrimage, icon painting, dance, divination, and meditation. Specially designed to assist learning it includes: •chapter timelines showing key persons, events and dates •themed boxes to encourage methodological enquiry •key-point chapter summaries to support understanding and review •study questions to assist classroom discussion •maps, charts and photographs

What is Christianity? How did it begin? What do Christians believe? What are their customs and history? How has Christianity developed though the centuries, and how diverse is Christianity today? Introducing Christianity is an essential introduction to one of the world’s great religious traditions. James Adair narrates the history of Christianity: the intellectual and historical context of its origins, its triumph under the Romans, the upheavals of the Crusades, the Protestant and Catholic Reformations and the challenges of the Enlightenment, and of the modern age. He explores the intriguing new forms Christianity took in the nineteenth century, the evolution of sects such as Mormonism and Jehovah’s witnesses, and its mission to Africa. Adair also interrogates Christianity’s role in the modern world, as he surveys liturgical, geographical and denominational perspectives of contemporary Christianity. He concludes by investigating how Christians interact with modern culture, particularly science, the arts, ethics, political and other religions. Written in a vivid and lively style, by an experienced teacher, Introducing Christianity is the ideal resource for students beginning their studies of Christianity. Richly illustrated, it also includes quotations from original sources, learning goals, summary boxes, questions for discussion, suggestions for further reading, and a comprehensive glossary, to aid study and revision.

Introducing Judaism is the ideal starting point for students beginning their studies of this fascinating religion. Eliezer Segal takes a historical approach, focusing on religious aspects of Judaism, and introducing themes as they emerge from authentic Jewish documents. Students will gain an understanding of how Judaism is lived by its adherents and the historical and geographical diversity of Jewish beliefs and practices. The book has a clear and accessible structure. Part One presents the historical context of Judaism, from the Biblical era, through the Medieval period and on to modern Judaism. Part Two surveys the distinctive values and beliefs of Judaism, including attitudes to God, Covenant, Israel, exile and homeland, the Torah, and its commandments, while Part Three presents Jewish Practices and Institutions, engaging with topics such as daily life, worship, temple and synagogue, law, ethics and education, the afterlife, and resurrection. Throughout the book, Eliezer Segal stresses the diversity of interpretations that have been generated by historical circumstances, differing theological and ideological outlooks, and the spiritual creativity of the religious community. Attention is paid to various models of piety, mysticism, scholasticism and folk religion, including the impact of Judaism on the daily life of believers and the experiences of Jewish women. Illustrated throughout, Introducing Judaism includes text boxes, a glossary, and a list of further reading to aid students’ understanding and revision, providing a thorough overview of one of the first recorded monotheistic faiths and one of the oldest religions still practiced today.

William Shepard, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Retired, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand What exactly is “Islam” and what does it mean to be a “Muslim” in the world today? Since the events of 9/11 and 7/7, Islam has become one of the most controversial and misunderstood religions in the world. Introducing Islam encourages students to put aside their preconceptions and explore this fascinating religion. William Shepard, an experienced teacher in the field, traces the history of Islam, from its origins in the Jewish and Christian traditions and the Arabian peninsula, including the life and career of Mohammed, to the rise and decline of Islam through the ages, and its interactions with the modern world. Chapters discuss important topics such as The Qur’an, Islamic law, Islamic theology, and the Sufi movement. In addition to this, four chapters are devoted to studies of Islam in individual countries: Turkey, Iran, Egypt and Indonesia, and Shepard explores Islamic civilization through discussion of Islamic art and culture, and community rituals. Introducing Islam is the ideal introduction for students wishing to gain a sympathetic understanding of Islam. Illustrated throughout, the book also includes text boxes, summary charts, a glossary of key Arabic terms, and a list of further reading to aid students’ understanding and revision.

“A welcome addition to the current range of introductory materials on Hinduism....Rodrigues’ treatment is sympathetic and sensitive, managing to suggest a sense of both of the breadth and richness of Hindu tradition and of its underlying unity.’ —Sushil Mittal, James Madison University, USA Introducing Hinduism is the ideal starting point for students wishing to undertake a comprehensive study of this fascinating religion. This lively introduction explores the complexities of Hinduism, including its social structures, especially its caste system, its rituals and many scriptures, its vast mythology and varieties of deities, and its religious philosophies. Hillary Rodrigues, an experienced teacher of the Hindu tradition, emphasises the importance of Hindu rituals and practice, subjects of particular interest in contemporary scholarship. Illustrated throughout, the book also includes text boxes, summary charts, a glossary and a list of further reading to aid students’ understanding and revision.

Charles Lippy, LeRoy A. Martin Distinguished Professorship of Religious Studies, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Robert Ellwood, Professor Emeritus of Religion, University of Southern California Introducing Japanese Religion is the ideal resource for students who are beginning their studies in the religious traditions of Japan. It offers a living picture of traditional and contemporary Japanese culture, and a rich understanding of the history and practice of religions in Japan.

Introducing American Religions is a stimulating and accessible overview of the historical development of religion in the US.

In four parts, Lippy traces the history of American religious themes and ideas, from Europe, Native American and African life and the periods of colonial settlement, through American history, including the age of independence, nineteenth century industrializing America, through to the late twentieth century and the present day. Along the way, he explores the influences of the African American experience through slavery, Roman Catholic and Jewish immigration, political and economic factors, the impact of Latino culture, and the surge of growth of Asian traditions such as Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as the idea of American civil religion. Illustrated throughout, featuring lively quotations from original sources, the book also includes text boxes, summary charts, study questions, a glossary and a list of further reading and weblinks to aid students’ understanding and revision.

Islamic Liberation Theology

Abdullah Saeed, University of Melbourne, Australia

Edited by Oliver Leaman, University of Kentucky, USA

Resisting the Empire

There is much more to the Qur’an than the selective quotations favored by Islamic fundamentalists. This book provides a student-friendly guide to the many ways in which the Qur’an can be read.

A RUSA 2007 Outstanding Reference Title The Qur’an is the source of inspiration for one of the world’s major religions, followed today by over a billion people. It plays a central role in Islam and ever since it appeared fourteen hundred years ago has been the subject of intense debate. Some of this has been carried out by Muslims and some by those hostile or indifferent to Islam, producing a very wide range of views.

Designed for both Muslims and Western non-Muslim students, it examines the Qur’an in Western scholarship as well as giving an overview of the rich interpretive traditions from the time of the Prophet Muhammad to the present day. This guide is a concise introduction to all aspects of the Qur’an: history, understanding and interpretation, providing: •coverage of both pre-modern and modern periods •plenty of examples to illustrate key points and aid student understanding •summaries, timelines and a glossary. Selected Table of Contents: Introduction Part 1 1. The Qurían in Context 2. The Prophet, Prophesy and Revelation 3. The Qur’an as a “Book” Part 2 4. The Qur’an and other Scriptures 5. The Qur’an and Western Scholarship 6. Translations of the Qur’an Part 3 7. The Qur’an and Traditions of the Prophet 8. Principles of Understanding the Qur’an 9. Early Interpretation of the Qur’an 10.

Authored by forty-three international experts, the objective of The Qur’an: An Encyclopedia is to present this diversity of thought, approach and school without priority, in order to give a strong appreciation of the range of response that the text has provoked throughout its history and providing students and researchers with a powerful onevolume resource covering all aspects of the text and its reception. Islam and the Qur’an are much in the news today and there is a public debate going on in which things are said about the Qur’an without much knowledge or understanding of the book. Every effort has been made to help the reader use the Encyclopedia as an investigative tool in Quranic studies. The volume assumes no previous knowledge of the Qur’an, Islam or Arabic. Technical terms are explained in the text itself and the style of each entry is designed to be as self-contained as possible. Entries are cross-referenced and many include a brief bibliography. At the end of the work there is a substantial annotated bibliography providing a detailed guide to the most significant books, journals and articles in Qur’anic Studies. There is a full index. The readership will include those seeking basic information on the Qur’an, however the substantial number of longer entries means that it will also be used by specialists.

Hamid Dabashi, Columbia University, USA This book is a radical piece of counter-intuitive rethinking of the clash of civilizations theory and global politics. In this richly detailed criticism of contemporary politics, Hamid Dabashi argues that after 9/11 we have not seen a new phase in a long running confrontation between Islam and the West, but that such categories have in fact collapsed and exhausted themselves. The West is no longer a unified actor and Islam is ideologically depleted in its confrontation with colonialism. Rather we are seeing the emergence of the US as a lone superpower, and a confrontation between a form of imperial globalized capital and the rising need for a new Islamic theodicy. The combination of political salience and theoretical force makes Islamic Liberation Theology a cornerstone of a whole new generation of thinking about political Islamism and a compelling read for anyone interested in contemporary Islam, current affairs and US foreign policy. Dabashi drives his wellsupported and thoroughly documented points steadily forward in an earnest and highly readable style.

Muslims in the West after 9/11 Religion, Politics and Law Edited by Jocelyne Cesari, Harvard University, USA Since 9/11, and particularly since the Madrid and London bombings of 2004 and 2005, the Muslim presence in Europe and the United States has become a major political concern. Many have raised questions regarding potential links between Western Muslims, radical Islam, and terrorism. Whatever the justification of such concerns, it is insufficient to address the subject of Muslims in the West from an exclusively counter-terrorist perspective. Rather, the Muslim presence must be analyzed in light of such issues as immigration, integration, and globalization. This book is the first systematic attempt to compare the situation of European and American Muslims after 9/11, and to present a comprehensive analysis of their religious, political, and legal situations. It will also address the links between Western Muslims and the Muslim world at large. This book will be of great interest to students of critical security studies, Islamic studies, sociology and political science in general.

Temptation, Responsibility and Loss

Moulding the Political and Ideological Consciousness

Marianna Klar, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK Klar gives a compelling examination of the prophets Job, Saul, David, Noah and Solomon as portrayed in Thaílabiís “Arais al-majalis”. She explores the nature of Thaílabiís work from a historical and literary context and investigates its efficacy as a tool for the exploration for the human condition via a close analysis of the tales of the five figures. Discussing the benefits and limitations of the application of biblical studies and literary motifs to Islamic materials, the book also investigates the possibilities of interpretation raised by a psychoanalytical, close reading of the tales five prophets in question. As such, this captivating text will be of great interest to scholars of Biblical prophets, Qur’anic studies, Islamic historiography, folklore and literary criticism.

Sufis in Western Society Global networking and locality Edited by Markus Dressler, Hofstra University, New York, USA, Ron Geaves, University of Chester, UK and Gritt Klinkhammer, Bremen University, Germany In recent years Sufism has undergone something of a revival as a spiritual alternative to other manifestations of Islam. This book investigates the development of Sufism in Western societies, with a regional focus on North America and Europe. Exploring a number of issues relating to the dynamic tensions between religious globalization processes and specific sacred localities, this book looks at the formation of Sufi movements that have migrated from their place of origin to become global religious networks.

This book argues against the assumption that both represent two extremely opposite expressions of Islamic religiosity. It shows that both were influenced by similar intellectual and religious traditions of Islam and that both participated in the same discussions on the reform of Islam in the 19th century.

Schools of Qur’anic Exegesis Evolution and Development Hussein Abdul-Raof Qur’anic exegesis is the battleground of political Islam and theological conflict among various Muslim schools of thought. This book delineates the birth, development and growth of Qur’anic exegesis. Using comparative and contrastive methodology, examples from the Qur’an are investigated in the light of various theological views.

This volume seeks to engage with the various debates surrounding Islam and Human Rights, in particular, challenging assumptions of a “standard” or “essential” Muslim perspective on Human Rights. Through a survey of the experiences of Muslim communities across the globe (the ummah), this volume highlights the dynamic way Muslims understand and incorporate Human Rights into their personal, social and political experiences.

The Ghazi Sultans and the Frontiers of Islam A comparative study of the late medieval and early modern periods Ali Anooshahr, University of California, Davis, USA Using a broad range of Persian, Arabic and Turkish texts, the author offers new findings in the history of memory and self-fashioning, demonstrating thereby the value of intertextual approaches to historical and literary studies. The three main themes explored include the formation of the ideal of the Ghazi king in the eleventh century, the imitation thereof in fifteenth and early sixteenth century Anatolia and India, and the process of transmission of the relevant texts. By focusing on the philosophical questions of “becoming” and “modelling”, Anooshahr has sought alternatives to historiographic approaches that only find facts, ideology, and legitimization in these texts.

Barbara Zollner, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK

The book provides an in-depth analysis of the Muslim Brotherhood during the years of al-Hudaybi’s leadership, and how he sought to steer the organization away from the radical wing, inspired by Sayyid Qutb, into the more moderate Islamist organization it is today. It is his legacy which eventually fostered the development of non-violent political ideas.

CHRISTIANITY

Christianity

Fifty Key Christian Thinkers Provides both valuable information and stimulating debate on the lives and work of fifty of the most important Christian theologians, from the emergence of the faith 2000 years ago to the present day.

Christian Ethics The End of the Law David S. Cunningham, Hope College, USA ”In some of the clearest prose I have encountered, Cunningham speaks directly to undergraduates in their own language, artfully weaving in a myriad of allusions and illustrations from contemporary culture, unpretentiously explaining unfamiliar words and concepts, and astutely naming the assumptions that shape their lives and voicing the questions they raise. He deftly takes them by the hand and walks them, step by logical step, into and through the discipline of Christian ethics as an ethics of character rooted in Scripture, worship, and the Trinity. This is really a wonderful book a long-needed gift to all who teach Christian ethics, whether in the classroom or in the congregation.”—Therese Lysaught, Associate Professor, Department of Theology, Marquette University, Milwaukee, USA Christian Ethics provides a biblical, historical, philosophical and theological guide to the field of Christian ethics. Prominent theologian David S. Cunningham explores the tradition of “virtue ethics” in this creative and lively text, which includes literary and musical references as well as key contemporary theological texts and figures. Three parts examine: •the nature of human action and the people of God as the “interpretative community” within which ethical discourse arises •the development of a “virtue ethics” approach, and places this in its Christian context •significant issues in contemporary Christian ethics, including the ethics of business and economics, politics, the environment, medicine and sex.

CHRISTIANITY

The Early Christian World

The Early Church Fathers

Edited by Philip F. Esler

Theodore of Mopsuestia

Theophilus of Alexandria

Frederick McLeod, St. Louis University, USA

Norman Russell

Theodore, bishop of Mopsuestia, (c.350-428) stands out as the preeminent exponent of the School of Antioch’s literal, historical and rational emphases in exegesis and of its staunch defence of Christ’s humanity. At his death, he was hailed as one of the outstanding, prolific biblical theologians of his time. However, after his works and person were later condemned at the Second Council of Constantinople in 553, he is known today primarily as the “Father of Nestorianism.” This addition to the Early Church Fathers series provides in one place new extensive translations of Theodore’s major extant works that have not been available in English up unto the present. It also summarizes the secondary literature and discusses at length the fundamental features of his theological thinking, especially regarding his method of exegesis and his functional stress on the union of Christ’s natures as occurring in “one common prosopon.” Frederick G. McLeod presents passages from Theodore’s major works “On the Incarnation” and his “Cathechetical Homilies;” his commentaries on Psalm 8, Adam’s creation, John, Philippians 2, Galatians, Ephesians, and Colossians; and his rejection of the allegorists and Apollinaris, as well as providing all the anathemas of Constantinople II against Theodore’s works and person.

Comprehensive and accessible, this lavishly illustrated encyclopaedic collection of papers on all aspects of early Christianity examines how the small movement which formed around Jesus in Galilee became the pre-eminent religion of the ancient world.

This book provides a new assessment of Theophilus, arguably one of the greatest bishops of the Theodosian era. Translated into English for the first time, these texts present a fresh perspective in the study of early Christianity.

2ND EDITION

The Death of Christian Britain 2nd edition Callum G. Brown, University of Dundee, UK The Death of Christian Britain uses the latest techniques to offer new formulations of religion and secularisation. This second edition includes a new chapter that repositions the book’s argument in light of criticism and new research. It addresses the reactions to the treatment of the “old” Christian culture of modern Britain, the sixties in religious history, gender and the mutation of Christianity and demonstrates the validity of the Death of Christian Britain in understanding contemporary religion and culture.

Systematic and progressive, it introduces the key approaches and shows how they relate to the understanding, study and practice of spirituality. Covering a vast amount of ground - from traditional themes such as images of God, spiritual direction and pilgrimage to more contemporary issues, such as place and space, cyberspace and postcolonialism - the author takes an ecumenical, inclusive stance, allowing the book to be used in a wide variety of courses and across denominations.

Topical and controversial, this volume is a bold and original work that will bring some uncomfortable truths to light.

Ideology and Christianity in Japan Kiri Paramore, Leiden University, the Netherlands Ideology and Christianity in Japan shows the major role played by Christian-related discourse in the formation of early-modern and modern Japanese political ideology. The book traces a history development of antiChristian ideas in Japan from the banning of Christianity by the Tokugawa shogunate in the early 1600s, to the use of Christian and anti-Christian ideology in the construction of modern Japanese state institutions at the end of the 1800s. Kiri Paramore recasts the history of Christian-related discourse in Japan in a new paradigm showing its influence on modern thought and politics and demonstrates the direct links between the development of ideology in the modern Japanese state, and the construction of political thought in the early Tokugawa shogunate.

JUDAISM

2ND EDITION

Judaism

The Routledge Historical Atlas of Jerusalem

Fifty Key Jewish Thinkers Dan Cohn-Sherbok, University of Wales, Lampeter, UK

Jerusalem Idea and Reality Edited by Tamar Mayer, Middlebury College, Vermont, USA and Suleiman A. Mourad, Smith College, Massachusetts, USA Jerusalem, the holy city of three faiths, has been the focus of competing historical, religious, and political narratives from Biblical chronicles to today’s headlines. With an aura that transcends the boundaries of time and place, the city itself embodies different levels of reality — indeed, different realities altogether — for both observers and inhabitants. There is the real Jerusalem, a place of ancient streets and monuments, temples and coffeehouses, religious discourse and political argument. But there is also the imaginary and utopian city that exists in the minds of believers, political strategists, and artists. The study of this multifaceted city poses complex questions that range over several fields of inquiry. The multidisciplinary studies in Jerusalem offer insights into this complexity. Chapters by leading scholars examine the significant issues that relate to the perception, representation, and status of the city at the historical, religious, social, artistic, and political levels. Together they provide an essential resource for anyone interested in the paradoxes that Jerusalem offers.

Harvey Mitchell’s book argues that a reassessment of Voltaire’s treatment of traditional Judaism will sharpen discussion of the origins of, and responses to, the Enlightenment. His study shows how Voltaire’s nearly total antipathy to Judaism is best understood by stressing his self-regard as the author of an enlightened and rational universal history, which found Judaism’s memory of its past incoherent, and, in addition, failed to meet the criteria of objective historyóa project in which he failed. Calling on an array of Jewish and non-Jewish figures to reveal how modern interpretations of Judaism may be traced to the core ideas of the Enlightenment, this book concludes that Voltaire paradoxically helped to foster the ambiguities and uncertainties of Judaism’s future.

The Routledge Atlas of the Holocaust

An Introduction

Jews and Judaism in World History

Oliver Leaman, Department of Philosophy, University of Kentucky

Howard N. Lupovitch, Colby College, USA

The Complete History

“Presents a fascinating overview of Jewish thought and sensibility... For a late modern audience whose affirmations and doubts are often both equally suspended and situated in such a way as to ironically play off each other, this book serves as a superb introduction to Judaism.” —Aryeh Botwinick, Temple University, USA

Martin Gilbert, Merton College, University of Oxford, UK “A classic of Holocaust studies. No other single volume quite conveys both the sheer scale of the Holocaust, and the depth of individual tragedy.” —BBC History Magazine The harrowing history of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the Jews of Europe during the Second World War is illustrated in this series of 332 highly detailed maps. The horror of the times is further revealed by shocking photographs. The maps do not concentrate solely on the fate of the Jews; they also set their chronological story in the broader context of the war itself and include:

•the spread of the horrors - the fate of the Jews across all Europe including Germany, Poland, Greece, France, the Balkans, Italy, the Baltic States and Austria and the incidence of massacres and betrayals

Written by Oliver Leaman, a leading figure in the field, the book surveys the central controversies in Judaism, including the protracted arguments within the religion itself. Topics range from the relations between Judaism and other religions, such as Islam and Christianity, to contemporary issues such as sex, gender and modernity. Central themes such as authority and obedience, the relations between Jewish and Greek thought, and the position and status of the State of Israel are also considered. The debates are further illustrated by reference to the Bible, as a profoundly realistic text in describing the long interaction between the Jews, their ancestors and God, as well as discussions about major thinkers, and passages from the ancient texts: The Mishnah, Talmud and Midrash.

•the relief from the atrocities: from the advance of the Allies to the liberation of the camps, the discovery of the horrors and the fate of the survivors.

Oliver Leaman’s lively approach and light touch makes Jewish Thought ideal reading for anyone who wants to understand more about the Jewish faith and its outlook, past and present.

This revised fourth edition includes new maps on some of the most significant places of the Holocaust, such as Auschwitz, Treblinka and the Warsaw Ghetto, which will be especially useful to those visiting those sites.

•historical background: from the effects of antiJewish violence between 1880 and 1914 to the geography of the existing Jewish communities before the advent of the Nazis •the beginning of the violence - from the first destruction of the synagogues to Jewish migrations and deportations and the establishment of concentration camps like Auschwitz

Jews and Judaism in World History is a survey of the history of the Jewish people from biblical antiquity to the present. The book opens with a broad introduction which looks at questions of terminology and definition, the relationship of Jewish and non-Jewish society, assimilation, the expansion of rabbinic Judaism into a way of life, Jewish identity and diversity. Eleven chapters then each outline a different stage across Jewish history. Jews and Judaism in World History presents Jewish history not simply as the history of Judaism, but also as the development of a social structure, polity, and a culture with religious and non-religious dimensions. It captures both the diverse political, social, and cultural contexts in which Jewish history unfolded and the continuities that traversed the Jewish world from Persia to the Pacific. Incorporating and engaging with the most up to date scholarship and exploring overarching themes in a broad, comparative context, Howard N. Lupovitch demonstrates the intimate and inexorable nexus between Judaism and World History.

German-Jewish Popular Culture before the Holocaust

Jews and Judaism in Modern China

Avrum Ehrlich, University of Shandong, China

David A. Brenner, Universität Konstanz, Germany

This book brings together a series of original essays which discuss the developing relations between Jews and Chinese, Jewish systems of thought and Chinese systems of thought, Jewish habits and Chinese habits. It explores the various areas of cooperation, the areas of contrast and comparison and develops an intellectual framework for understanding its course and currents.

David A. Brenner examines how Jews in Central Europe developed one of the first “ethnic” or “minority” cultures in modernity. Not exclusively “German” or “Jewish,” the experiences of Germanspeaking Jewry in the decades prior to the Third Reich and the Holocaust were also negotiated in encounters with popular culture, particularly the novel, the drama and mass media.

Jewish Eating and Identity Through the Ages David C. Kraemer, Jewish Theological Seminary, USA This book explores the history of Jewish eating and Jewish identity, from the Bible to the present. The lessons of this book rest squarely on the muchquoted insight: ‘you are what you eat.’ But this book goes beyond that simple truism to recognise that you are not only what you eat, but also how, when, where and with whom you eat. This book begins at the beginning — with the Torah — and then follows the history of Jewish eating until the modern age and even into our own day.

Introduction to Buddhist Meditation Sarah Shaw, University of Oxford, UK ”A thoughtful overview and introduction to the range of methods and traditions of Buddhist meditation across Asia, from mindfulness of breathing to visualisation, koan and chanting practices. A particular strength is that it shows how meditative qualities are extended into daily life through devotional, ritual and artistic practices, which then in turn give nurturing roots for more archetypally meditative practices.”—Peter Harvey is Professor of Buddhist Studies at the University of Sunderland, UK, and editor of the Buddhist Studies Review journal. Sarah Shaw’s lively introduction to Buddhist meditation offers students and practitioners alike a deeper understanding of what meditation is, and its purpose and place in the context of different Buddhist schools. She describes the historical background to the geographical spread of Buddhism, and examines the way in which some meditative practices developed as this process occurred. Other chapters cover basic meditative practice, types of meditation, meditation in different regions, meditation and doctrine, and the role of chanting within meditation. Although not a practical guide, An Introduction to Buddhist Meditation outlines the procedures associated with Buddhist practices and suggests appropriate activities, useful both for students and interested Buddhists. Vivid quotations from Buddhist texts and carefully selected photographs and diagrams help the reader engage fully with this fascinating subject.

Buddhist Meditation An Anthology of Texts from the Pali Canon

2ND EDITION

2ND EDITION

Mahayana Buddhism

Theravada Buddhism

The Doctrinal Foundations

A Social History from Ancient Benares to Modern Colombo

It provides a broad introduction to their traditional context and practice and supplies explanation, context and doctrinal background to the subject of meditation. The main themes of the book are the diversity and flexibility of the way that the Buddha teaches meditation from the evidence of the canon. Covering fundamental features of Buddhist practice such as posture, lay meditation, and meditative technique it provides comments both from the principal early commentators on Buddhist practice, Upatissa and Buddhaghosa, and from reputable modern meditation teachers in a number of Theravadin traditions.

“Williams has extensively revised and updated the book in the light of the considerable scholarship published in this area since 1989, at the same time enlarging many of his thoughtful discussions of Mahayana Buddhist philosophical issues. The result is a tour de force of breadth and depth combined. I confidently expect that Williams’ richly detailed map of this field will remain for decades to come an indispensable guide to all those who venture into it.”—Paul Harrison, George Edwin Burnell Professor of Religious Studies, Stanford University

This is the first book on Pali Buddhism which introduces the reader to the wide range of the canon. It demonstrates that the Buddha’s meditative tradition still offers a path of practice as mysterious, awe-inspiring yet as freshly accessible as it was centuries ago, and will be of interest to students and scholars of Buddhism as well as Buddhist practitioners.

Originating in India, Mahayana Buddhism spread across Asia, becoming the prevalent form of Buddhism in Tibet and East Asia. Over the last twenty-five years Western interest in Mahayana has increased considerably, reflected both in the quantity of scholarly material produced and in the attraction of Westerners towards Tibetan Buddhism and Zen.

Richard F. Gombrich, University of Oxford, UK Written by the leading authority on Theravada Buddhism, this up-dated edition takes into account recent research to include the controversies over the date of the Buddha and current social and political developments in Sri Lanka.

Buddhist Meditation Edward Conze As an intensely practical religion, Buddhism has concentrated on devising a great number of meditations. In recent years psychologists have shown great interest in the therapeutic value of these meditations, but accurate information about them has been hard to come by. The most outstanding original documents have now been made accessible by Edward Conze, who translated them from Pali, Sanskrit and Tibetan. The volume, originally published in 1956, also deals with the meaning of Buddhist meditation, and the relation of its methods and presuppositions to modern psychology.

Edited by Stephen C. Berkwitz, Missouri State University, US, Juliane Schober, Arizona State University, US and Claudia Brown, Arizona State University, US Buddhist Manuscript Cultures explores how religious and cultural practices in premodern Asia were shaped by literary and artistic traditions as well as by Buddhist material culture. This study of Buddhist texts focuses on the significance of their material forms rather than their doctrinal contents, and examines how and why they were made. Collectively, the book offers cross-cultural and comparative insights into the transmission of Buddhist knowledge and the use of texts and images as ritual objects in the artistic and aesthetic traditions of Buddhist cultures. Drawing on case studies from India, Gandhara, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Mongolia, China and Nepal, the chapters included investigate the range of interests and values associated with producing and using written texts, and the roles manuscripts and images play in the transmission of Buddhist texts and in fostering devotion among Buddhist communities.

BUDDHISM • BIBLICAL AND TEXTUAL STUDIES

FORTHCOMING

The Buddhist Teaching of Totality

The Wheel of Death

Nation, Constitutionalism and Buddhism in Sri Lanka

The Philosophy of Hwa Yen Buddhism

Writings from Zen Buddhist and Other Sources

Garma C. C. Chang

Philip Kapleau

Roshan de Silva Wijeyeratne, Griffith Law School, Australia

“This would be a highly useful book for any college or university library. Highly recommended for purchase.” —Library Journal

Originally published in 1972, this anthology examines death through the eyes of great Buddhist, Taoist, Hindu and Western masters. Instructions and specific rites are set forth to enable people to guide the mind of the dying through death and the Intermediate stage which follows. The sections of Rebirth and Karma deal succinctly with these complex and often mis-understood doctrines.

This book offers a new perspective on contemporary debates about nationalism in South Asia in general and Sri Lanka in particular. The price of that nationalism in Sri Lanka is the current agonizing split between Sinhalese and Tamil. The central focus here is the “capture” of Buddhism by militant Sinhalese nationalism in the colonial and postcolonial periods and the framing of subsequent key constitutional legal moments. April 2009: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 240pp Hb: 978-0-415-46266-2: $150.00 £85.00

Originally published in 1971. Long regarded as a classic, this volume is one of the most systematic treatments of Hwa Yen to have appeared in the English language. With excellently translated selections of Hwa Yen readings, factual information and discussion, it is highly recommended to readers whose interests in Buddhism incline toward the metaphysical and phenomenological.

Biblical and Textual Studies

F. Harold Smith Originally published in 1951. This study of Buddhism deals with the early tradition, followed by a brief consideration of its historicity and the form the religion takes in Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand. The main line of development in India, China and Japan is then discussed. Focussing on essential Buddhism in both its chief schools, the Lesser and Greater Vehicle, the influence of philosophy on sect and of both on the practical affairs of history are examined.

The New Testament in its Ritual World Richard DeMaris, Professor of New Testment at Valparaiso University What was life like among the first Christians? For the last thirty years, scholars have explored the historical and social contexts of the New Testament in order to sharpen their understanding of the text itself. This interest has led scholars to focus more and more on the social features of early Christian communities and less on their theologies or doctrines.

G. F. Allen This study, originally published in 1959, traces the origin of Buddhism in Brahmanism, and fixes its relationship to Hinduism, describing and stressing the basic importance of Buddhist contemplation. The first half of the book introduces the very heart of Buddhism, while the second part presents the Teaching itself, as handed down in the canonical writings of the ancient East.

The Buddhist Tantras Light on Indo-Tibetan Esotericism

The Central Philosophy of Buddhism A Study of the Madhyamika System T. R. V. Murti Originally published in 1955. The Madhyamika philosophy is, in the author’s view, the philosophy which created a revolution in Buddhism and through that in the whole range of Indian philosophy. This volume is a study of the Madhyamika philosophy in all its important aspects. February 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 388pp Hb: 978-0-415-46118-4: $160.00 £80.00

Alex Wayman Originally published in 1973, the volume is divided into four sections: The introduction places the position of the Buddhist Tantras within Mahayana Buddhism and recalls their early literary history, especially the Guhyasamahatantra; the section also covers Buddhist Genesis and the Tantric tradition. Next, the foundations of the Buddhist Tantras are discussed and the Tantric presentation of divinity; the preparation of disciples and the meaning of initiation; symbolism of the mandala-palace Tantric ritual and the twilight language. Third, this section explores the Tantric teachings of the inner Zodiac and the fivefold ritual symbolism of passion. Finally, the bibliographical research contains an analysis of the Tantric section of the Kanjur exegesis and a selected Western Bibliography of the Buddhist Tantras with comments.

Scholars are keen to understand what these communities were like, but the ritual life of early Christians remains largely unexplored. Studies of baptism and eucharist do exist, but they are very traditional, showing little awareness of the ritual world, let alone the broader social environment, in which Christians found themselves. Such studies make little or no use of the social sciences, Roman social history, or the archaeological record.

The Footprint of the Buddha E. F. C. Ludowyk Originally published in 1958, this volume discusses the Buddhist monuments of Sri Lanka, which represent a distinctive and valuable portion of the art of the ancient and medieval world. It traces the development of this artistic achievement and places it in the appropriate religious, philosophical and historical context. Supporting the text are thirty-one black & white plates and a glossary of terms used helps to guide the reader throughout the book. February 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-46117-7: $160.00 £80.00

This book argues that ritual was central to, and definitive for, early Christian life (as it is for all social orders), and explores the New Testament through a ritual lens. By grounding the exploration in ritual theory, Greco-Roman ritual life, and the material record of the ancient Mediterranean, it offers new and insightful perspectives on early Christian communities and their cultural environment. In doing justice to a central but slighted aspect of community life, it outlines an alternative approach to the New Testament, one that reveals what the lives of the first Christians were actually like.

The Advaita Doctrine of “Awareness Only” Sthaneshwar Timalsina, San Diego State University, US This book focuses on the analysis of pure consciousness as found in Advaita Vedanta, one of the main schools of Indian philosophy. According to this tradition, reality is identified as Brahman, the world is considered illusory, and the individual self is identified with the absolute reality. Advaitins have various approaches to defend this argument, the central one being the doctrine of ‘awareness only’ (cinmatra). Following this stream of argument, what consciousness grasps immediately is consciousness itself, and the notions of subject and object arise due to ignorance. This doctrine categorically rejects the plurality of individual selves and the reality of objects of perception.

Psychology and the Occult C.G. Jung A fifteen-year-old girl who claimed regular communications with the spirits of her dead friends and relatives was the subject of the very first published work by the now legendary psychoanalyst C.G. Jung. Collected here, alongside many of his later writings on such subjects as life after death, telepathy and ghosts, it was to mark just the start of a professional and personal interestóeven obsessionóthat was to last throughout Jung’s lifetime.

The Philosophical Traditions of India

”This Encyclopedia offers a truly fascinating, authoritative overview of new religious movements in a global context. What sets this work apart is its assessment of the global significance of a movement (how it progresses cross-culturally) with attention to its transformative appeal (how it seeks to transform its individual adherents or the larger society). This is an outstanding reference source — scholarly, timely, important, and worth the price for academic libraries. Summing Up: Essential.” —Choice “An extensive and authorative resource that challenges its single volume format.” — Reference Reviews “Its ‘global’ perspective differentiates it from other reference resources currently available.” — Reference Reviews New Religious Movements (NRMs) can involve vast numbers of followers and in many cases are radically changing the way people understand and practice religion and spirituality. Moreover, many are having a profound impact on the form and content of mainstream religion. The Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements provides uniquely global coverage of the phenomenon, with entries on over three hundred movements from almost every country in the world. Coverage includes movements that derive from the major religions of the world and to neo-traditional movements, movements often overlooked in the study of NRMs. In addition to the coverage of particular movements there are also entries on topics, themes, key thinkers and key ideas, for example the New Age Movement, Neo-Paganism, New Religion and gender, NRMs and cyberspace, NRMs and the law, the Anti-Cult Movement, Swedenborg, Jung, Teilhard de Chardin, Lovelock, Gurdjieff, al-Banna, Qutb.

P. T. Raju This volume conveys that Indian philosophy has intricate and complex metaphysical and epistemological theories as other philosophies and that these disciplines — epistemology and metaphysics — are an essential part of Indian philosophy.

The marked global approach and comprehensiveness of the encyclopedia enable an appreciation of the innovative energy of NRMs, of their extraordinary diversity, and the often surprising ways in which they can propagate geographically. The most ambitions publication of its sort, the Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements is a major addition to the reference literature for students and researchers of the field in religious studies and the social sciences. Entries are crossreferenced with short bibliographies for further reading. There is a full index

This is the third in Rudich’s trilogy on the intellectual roots of opposition to Nero’s rule. The author’s approach is based in his own experience, as a Russian exile, of the dissident mentality in the former Soviet Union, which gives the critical treatment of the sources an intriguing personal slant.

Philosophy of Religion

Keeping Faith is a rich, moving and deeply personal collection of essays from one of the leading African American intellectuals of our age. Drawing upon the traditions of Western philosophy and modernity, Cornel West critiques structures of power and oppression as they operate within American society and provides a way of thinking about human dignity and difference afresh. Impressive in its scope, West confidently and deftly explores the politics and philosophy of America, the role of the black intellectual, legal theory and the future of liberal thought, and the fate of African Americans. A celebration of the extraordinary lives of ordinary Americans, Keeping Faith is a petition to hope and a call to faith in the redemptive power of the human spirit.

PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Violence to Eternity Grace M. Jantzen

Paul Tillich, Carl Jung and the Recovery of Religion

Edited by Jeremy Carrette, University of Kent, UK and Morny Joy, University of Calgary, Canada

John P. Dourley, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

In this volume Grace M. Jantzen continues her groundbreaking analysis of death and beauty in western thought by examining the religious roots of death and violence in the Jewish and Christian tradition, which underlie contemporary values. She shows how man’s fear of the female is often implicated in religious violence and in her critique of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament she examines a range of themes that show the western preoccupation with necrophilia. She examines the relation of death to the Jewish covenant, the nature of monotheism, Holy War and the Christian covenant and kingdom. However, Jantzen recognises that submerged beneath these themes in Judaism and Christianity are traces of an alternative world of beauty and life. Jantzen’s internationally recognised feminist philosophy of religion puts forward a powerful analysis of patriarchy and violence and reveals the hidden power of natality. Her work is a searching challenge for our times and one that gives hope in a violent world. This work is the first of two posthumous publications to complete her impressive genealogy death and beauty of western thought.

Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture

Is religion a positive reality in your life? If not, have you lost anything by forfeiting this dimension of your humanity? This book compares the theology of Tillich with the psychology of Jung, arguing that they were both concerned with the recovery of a valid religious sense for contemporary culture. Paul Tillich, Carl Jung and the Recovery of Religion explores in detail the diminution of the human spirit through the loss of its contact with its native religious depths, a problem on which both spent much of their working lives and energies. Both Tillich and Jung work with a naturalism that grounds all religion on processes native to the human being. Tillich does this in his efforts to recover that point at which divinity and humanity coincide and from which they differentiate. Jung does this by identifying the archetypal unconscious as the source of all religions now working toward a religious sentiment of more universal sympathy. This book identifies the dependence of both on German mysticism as a common ancestry and concludes with a reflection on how their joint perspective might affect religious education and the relation of religion to science and technology. Throughout the book, John Dourley looks back to the roots of both men’s ideas about mediaeval theology and Christian mysticism making it ideal reading for analysts and academics in the fields of Jungian and religious studies.

Jewish Interpretation and Controversy in Medieval Languedoc Gregg Stern, University of Massachussets, USA Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture is a study of the great, and curiously underappreciated, engagement of a Medieval European Jewish community with the philosophic tradition. This lucid description of the Languedocian Jewish community’s multigenerational cultivation of - and acculturation to - scientific and philosophic teachings into Judaism fulfils a major desideratum in Jewish cultural history. In the first detailed account of this long-forgotten Jewish community and its cultural ideal, the author gives an expansive reappraisal of the role of the philosophic interpretation in rabbinic culture and medieval Judaism. Looking at how the cultural ideal of Languedocian Jewry continued to develop and flourish throughout the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, with particular reference to the literary style and religious teaching of the great Talmudist, Menahem ha-Meiri, Stern explores issues such as Meiri’s theory of “civilized religions”, including Christianity and Islam, controversy over philosophy and philosophic allegory in Languedoc and Catalonia, and the cultural significance of the medical use of astrological images. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of Religion, of Judaism in particular, and of Philosophy, History and Medieval Europe, as well as those interested in Jewish-Christian relations.

Moreland argues that the existence of finite, irreducible consciousness (or its regular, law-like correlation with physical states) provides evidence for the existence of God. Moreover, he analyzes and criticizes the top representative of rival approaches to explaining the origin of consciousness, including John Searle’s contingent correlation, Timothy O’Connor’s emergent necessitation, Colin McGinn’s mysterian “naturalism,” David Skrbina’s panpsychism and Philip Clayton’s pluralistic emergentist monism. Moreland concludes that these approaches should be rejected in favor of what he calls “the Argument from Consciousness.” Series: Routledge Studies in the Philosophy of 1 Religion March 2008: 6 x 9: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-96240-7: $95.00 eBook: 978-0-203-92933-9 £60.00

Theism and Explanation Gregory Dawes, University of Otago, New Zealand In this timely study, Dawes defends the methodological naturalism of the sciences. Even though religions offer what appear to be explanations of various facts about the world, the scientist, as scientist, will not take such proposed explanations seriously. Even if no natural explanation were available, she will assume that one exists. Is this merely a sign of atheistic prejudice, as some critics suggest? Or are there good reasons to exclude from science explanations that invoke a supernatural agent?

The Varieties of Religious Experience

Psychology of Religion

A Study In Human Nature William James ”Is life worth living? Yes, a thousand times yes when the world still holds such spirits as Professor James.” — Gertrude Stein

Near-Death Experiences Exploring the Mind-Body Connection Ornella Corazza, SOAS, UK Near-death experiences fascinate everyone, from theologians to sociologists and neuroscientists. This groundbreaking book introduces the phenomenon of NDEs, their personal impact and the dominant scientific explanations. Taking a strikingly original crosscultural approach and incorporating new medical research, it combines new theories of mind and body with contemporary research into how the brain functions.

A classic of American thought, William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experience is an extraordinary study of human spirituality in all its forms and one of the most profound works of Psychology ever written. When the book was published in 1902 the study of the human mind was a thrillingly new field of scientific enquiry: James was one of the first to seriously examine the psychology of religious faith and where he led, both Jung and Freud would follow. Yet for all its historical significance, this is a book full of humanity, wit and some deeply personal stories of revelation, religious devotion and mystical experience.

Ornella Corazza analyses dualist models of mind and body, discussing the main features of NDEs as reported by many people who have experienced them. She studies the use of ketamine to reveal how characteristics of NDEs can be chemically induced without being close to death. This evidence challenges the conventional “survivalist hypothesis”, according to which the near death experience is a proof of the existence of an afterlife.

The Routledge Classics edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience makes available in paperback for the first time the Centenary Edition published by Routledge in 2002 with new introductions on the historical and contemporary significance of James’ work and a foreword by the author’s grandson, Micky James.

This remarkable book concludes that we need to move towards a more integrated view of embodiment, in order to understand what human life is and also what it can be.

PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGION • THEOLOGY

Religious Fundamentalism

The Radical Orthodoxy Reader

Beyond Monotheism

Global, Local and Personal

Edited by John Milbank, Nottingham University, UK and Simon Oliver, Lampeter University, UK

A theology of multiplicity

This Reader presents a selection of key readings in the field of Radical Orthodoxy, the most influential theological movement in contemporary academic theology. Radical Orthodoxy draws on preEnlightenment theology and philosophy to engage critically with the assumption and priorities of secularism, modernity, postmodernity and associated theologies. In doing so it explores a wide and exciting range of issues: music, language, society, the body, the city, power, motion, space, time, personhood, sex and gender. As such it is both controversial and extremely stimulating; provoking much fruitful debate amongst contemporary theologians.

“This book is a beautifully written and passionately adventurous effort to render fluid and supple again Christianity’s frozen fixation with the One. Taking seriously the idea of incarnation in the ordinary, Schneider with grace, humility, and humor, illumines how the divine comes to us in and through the fractured, interconnected singularities of actual embodied lives. Part history lesson, ethical entreaty, philosophical rumination, and flight of fancy, Schneider’s book is a model for how theology should be done today. If only every work in theology could be this daring in its insights, fulsome in its dialogue partners, and touchingly attentive to the complexities of everyday existence.” —Kathryn Tanner, Dorothy Grant Maclear Professor of Theology, University of Chicago Divinity School

Peter Herriot, University of Surrey, UK and Open University Business School, Milton Keynes, UK Religious Fundamentalism deals with four levels of analysis, uniquely combining sociological and psychological perspectives, and relating them to each other. Each chapter is followed by a lengthy case study, and these range from a close textual analysis of President George W. Bush’s second inaugural speech through to a treatment of al-Qaida as a global media event. This book provides a comprehensive social scientific perspective on a subject of immense contemporary significance, and should be of use both to university students and also to students of the contemporary world.

To assist those encountering Radical Orthodoxy for the first time, each section has an introductory commentary, related reading and helpful questions to encourage in-depth understanding and further study. Some of the authors featured in this reader include: • John Milbank • Catherine Pickstock • Olivier Thomas-Venard

Beyond Monotheism is an absorbing and lyrical exploration of the possibility of a new, living theology of multiplicity that is grounded in fluidity, change and incarnation.

Doing Contextual Theology Angie Pears, Oxford Brookes University, UK Christian theology, like all forms of knowledge, thinking and practice, arises from and is influenced by the context in which it is done. In Doing Contextual Theology, Angie Pears demonstrates the radically contextual nature of Christian theology by focusing on five forms of liberation theology: • Latin American Liberation Theologies • Black Theologies • Feminist Informed Theologies • Sexual Theologies Pears analyses how each of these asserts a clear and persistent link to the Christian tradition through The Bible and Christology and discusses the implications of contextual and local theologies for understanding Christianity as a religion. Moreover, she considers whether fears are justified that a radically contextual reading of Christian theologies leads to a relativist understanding of the religion, or whether these theologies share some form of common identity both despite and because of their contextual nature.

September 11th and the subsequent War on Terror continues to cast a long shadow over the world. Religion, Terror and Violence brings together a group of distinguished scholars from a range of backgrounds and disciplines to explore the claim that acts of violence were intimately linked to cultural and social authorizing processes that could be called ‘religious.’ This book provides a nuanced but incisive insight into the reaction of the discipline of religious studies to the post 9/11 world.

A Theology of Becoming

John Haldane

Religious Studies Perspectives

This book argues that the Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo (creation out of nothing) sets up a support system for a “logic of domination” toward human and earth others. Conceptually inspired by the work of theologian Catherine Keller and feminist philosopher of the environment Val Plumwood, it follows a genealogical method in examining how the concept of creation out of nothing materializes in the world throughout different periods in the history of the Christian West.

The rise of political Islam, as a force in world politics, has prompted questions and theories concerning its nature and compatibility with democratic values. Not least have been discussions and conflicts within Islamic communities, particularly in Europe where choices of identity and allegiance are growing acute.

Religion in World Conflict

Charles F. Andrain, University of California, San Diego, USA Why do individuals and groups hold distinctive theological views? Why do these beliefs change? In what ways do theological interpretations influence concepts of spiritual and political justice? How and why do these concepts of justice affect policy preferences held by religious liberals and conservatives? Much has recently been written about the relationship between power, conservative politics, and evangelical religious groups, but very little attention has been paid to so-called “progressive” religious groups among Protestants, Catholics, and Jews and their relationship to political thought and action.

Bassam Tibi, University of Goettingen, Germany

Political Islam, World Politics and Europe

‘Bassam Tibi is a twentyfirst century Martin Luther of Islam. His plea for a return to the open, tolerant, creative Islam that served as a beacon of progress for humankind a millennium ago offers the only real alternative to a jihadism that not only threatens world peace but also reinforces the root cause of jihadism— humiliation, as the Islamic world falls further behind the West, East Asia, and now India.’ — Lawrence E. Harrison, Director, Cultural Change Institute, The Fletcher School Tufts University, USA.

This international collection focuses its attention on South Asia to discuss whether religions justify and cause violence or whether they are seen as forces for peace and tolerance.

Mawlana Mawdudi was one of the most influential and important Islamic thinkers of the 20th century. His brand of political Islam has won widespread acceptance in South and South East Asia as well as the Middle East. This book is the first to critically engage and assess his career and legacy. It includes coverage of his early life and influences, and examines his considerable influence in the contemporary Islamic world.

Religion, Language, and Power Edited by Nile Green, University of California, Los Angeles and Mary Searle-Chatterjee, University of Manchester, UK Religion, Language and Power shows that the language of “religion” is far from neutral, and that the packaging and naming of what English speakers call “religious” groups or identities is imbued with the play of power. Religious Studies has all too often served to amplify voices from other centers of power, whether scripturalist or otherwise normative and dominant. This book’s de-centering of English classifications goes beyond the remit of most postcolonial studies in that it explores the classifications used in a range of languages including Arabic, Sanskrit, Chinese, Greek and English to achieve a comparative survey of the roles of language and power in the making of “religion”. In contextualizing these uses of language, the ten contributors explore how labels are either imposed or emerge interactively through discursive struggles between dominant and marginal groups. In dealing with the interplay of religion, language and power, there is no other book with the breadth of this volume.

This wide-ranging and interdisciplinary work, ideal for use in college courses on religion and social issues, explores the impact of theological interpretations about God, the individual, society, church, and government on attitudes toward procedural and distributive justice.

Religious Nationalism in Modern Europe If God be for Us

TEXTBOOK

Religion and Science

God and Evolution A Reader Edited by Mary Kathleen Cunningham, North Carolina State University, USA

Philip W. Barker, Austin College, USA This volume examines the enduring nature of religious nationalism in modern Europe. Through a series of in-depth case studies covering Ireland, England, Poland, and Greece; the author argues that religious frontiers, or geographic lines of division between different and unique religions, are central to the formation of religiously-based national identities.

FORTHCOMING

Greatly expanding our current understanding of the conditions in which religious nationalism develops, this important book has implications for our understanding of religion and politics, secularization, European politics and foreign policy.

Can we reconcile belief in God and Darwinism, divine action and an evolutionary world? Such questions are central to studies of science and religion, and these debates are hotly disputed in the interaction between evolutionary theorists and the Christian tradition. This book offers a guide to the issues, taking a non-polemical stance and reflecting the depth and complexity of the debates.

It also provides numerous examples of how different conflict theories can be applied in the analysis of real situations of tensions and violence, illustrating the mutually reinforcing nature of mass level sentiment and elite agency, and the rational and emotive influences on those involved.

God and Evolution An Introduction Mary Kathleen Cunningham, North Carolina State University, USA

Mary Kathleen Cunningham introduces the different views of the relationship of science and religion in general and the interaction of evolutionary theory and Christian theism in particular. In her opening chapters she compares the different methodologies used in the disciplines of science and religion, and examines Darwin, Darwinism, and the Neo-Darwin Synthesis, then moves on to focus on the issue of the compatibility of evolutionary theory and divine action. The volume explores challenges to Darwinism coming from creationists and adherents of Intelligent Design, as well as the thought of naturalistic critics of theism. The final chapter examines the work of diversified thinkers who attempt to get beyond the polarization of evolution and theism. Ideal for those with no previous knowledge of the field, this is the essential textbook for students exploring this fascinating topic. For those who wish to pursue their studies further, the accompanying reader, God and Evolution, features many of the writers discussed in the textbook.

Gaia and Climate Change A Theology of Gift Events Anne Primavesi, Westar Institute and Lokahi Foundation, UK James Lovelock’s Gaia theory revolutionized the understanding of our place and role in the global environment. It is now accepted that our activities over the past two hundred years have contributed to and accelerated the extreme weather events associated with climate change. The fact that those activities materialized, for the most part, from within Western Christian communities makes it imperative to assess and to change their theological climate: one characterized by routine use of violent, imperialist images of God. The basis for change explored here is that of gift events, particularly as evidenced in Jesus’s life and sayings. Its legacy of love of enemies and forgiveness offers a basis for nonviolent theological and practical approaches to our situatedness within the community of life. These are also Gaian responses, as they include foregoing a perception of ourselves as belonging to an elect group given power by God over earth’s life-support systems and over all those dependent on them, whether human or more-than-human. The degree to which we change this self-perception will determine how we affect, for good or ill, not only the givenness of the climate in future but the givenness of all future life on earth.

Evolutionary Theory and Christian Belief The Unresolved Conflict David Lack Originally published in 1957. This book is concerned with the conflict between “Darwinism” as the Victorians called it, and Christianity, a conflict here re-stated in modern terms because it so vitally affects our understanding of human nature and human values today. The opening chapter describes the historical background. There is a short account of evolution and the argument over Genesis. The importance of natural selection is stressed, and rival theories as to the means of animal evolution are criticised. Discussions follow on whether the course of evolution has been random or determined, on the argument from design, death in nature, the biologist’s methods and the difficulties in evolutionary ethics.

Science and the Indian Tradition When Einstein Met Tagore David L. Gosling, University of Cambridge, UK This new text is a detailed study of an important process in modern Indian history. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, India experienced an intellectual renaissance, which owed as much to the influx of new ideas from the West as to traditional religious and cultural insights. Gosling examines the effects of the introduction of Western science into India, and the relationship between Indian traditions of thought and secular Western scientific doctrine. He charts the early development of science in India, its role in the secularization of Indian society, and the subsequent reassertion, adaptation and rejection of traditional modes of thought. The beliefs of key Indian scientists, including Jagadish Chandra Bose, P.C. Roy and S.N. Bose are explored and the book goes on to reflect upon how individual scientists could still accept particular religious beliefs such as reincarnation, cosmology, miracles and prayer. Science and the Indian Tradition gives an in-depth assessment of results of the introduction of Western science into India, and will be of interest to scholars of Indian history and those interested in the interaction between Western and Indian traditions of intellectual thought.

Religion, Medicine and the Human Embryo in Tibet

NEW

Science and Religion

Frances Garrett, University of Toronto, Canada

Edited by Harold K. Schilling

This book explores the cultural history of embryology in Tibet, in culture, religion, art and literature, and what this reveals about its medicine and religion. Filling a significant gap in the literature this is the first in-depth exploration of Tibetan medical history in the English language. It reveals the prevalence of descriptions of the development of the human body — from conception to birth — found in all forms of Tibetan religious literature, as well as in medical texts and in art.

Originally published in 1963.This volume provides a rigorous interpretation that portrays science and religion in their actualities as personal, communal and cultural phenomena involving different concerns, conceptions and modes of inquiry. The role of key aspects of their life and thought are investigated. They are found to be remarkably alike and their basic differences, far from making them mutually exclusive, reveal them as potentially complimentary and mutually helpful.

Hate is the Sin Putting Faces on the Debate over Human Sexuality John S. Munday Arguments based in doctrine and scripture over the inclusion of homosexual people within Christian congregations and sacraments have done little to persuade the faithful on either side of this debate. Hate is the Sin: Putting Faces on the Debate over Human Sexuality approaches this divisive subject through portraits of the faith of gay and lesbian persons, presents both sides of the controversy, revealing how preformed opinions shape widely divergent interpretations of biblical and theological issues. Included are the true stories of Mary Albing, serving as a pastor while in a lesbian relationship; Jay Wiesner, whose congregation defied the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America by ordaining and installing him in an Extraordinary Candidacy Project ceremony; David Glesne, who sought to heal relationships with gays and lesbians and yet deny them ordination and cohabitation; and other accounts of the ways that many congregations have struggled to welcome homosexual people and to realize the Christian message within their own churches. Hate is the Sin: Putting Faces on the Debate over Human Sexuality is an insightful and detailed account of this contemporary debate and required reading for any person hoping to understand Christianity and the spiritual lives of contemporary Christian people.

Dickens and Religion

The Many Deaths of Judas Iscariot

Edited by Amie Evans and Trebor Healey

Dennis Walder

A Meditation on Suicide

How does one reconcile the tension between the community of one’s own Catholic upbringing and a sexuality and gender identity that may be in conflict with some of the tenets of the faith — especially when one is a member of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex community? Queer and Catholic offers a source of comfort to members of these communities, focusing on not only practicing Catholics, but also the entire experience of growing up Catholic. This unique book discusses Catholicism beyond its religiosity and considers its implications as a culture of origin. This widely varied and entertaining book pulls together a comprehensive collection of essays, stories, and poetry that together represent an honest and engaging reflection of being a queer person within the Catholic experience.

The importance of understanding Dickens’s religion to obtain a full appreciation of his achievement has long been admitted; but this is the first critical study of the interaction between Dickens’s religious beliefs and his creative imagination throughout his career.

The United Methodist Church has been in conflict over lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender inclusion issues since 1972. That year, in response to the gay liberation and gay rights movements, wording was added to the UMC Book of Discipline (the compilation of denominational policies and doctrines) characterizing homosexuality as “incompatible with Christian teaching.” Since then, United Methodist ministers have been forbidden to perform same-sex commitment ceremonies (and United Methodist churches forbidden to host them), a rule has been passed that non-heterosexual United Methodist ministers must be celibate, and the UMC has forbidden the funding of any program or organization “supporting” homosexuality. These policies have been met with significant resistance by those fighting for GLBT inclusion. In this groundbreaking book, Udis-Kessler examines this struggle, analyzing both sides of this divisive debate among one of the most prominent religious organizations in the United States.

In this bold, captivating and controversial book, the author combines his own intensely moving personal accounts with incisive scriptural analysis, and challenges the reader to reassess what they think they know about Judas Iscariot and suicide.

It presents a compelling case for the premise that the religion in which an individual is raised and the extent of religious involvement during childhood can have far-reaching implications in the secular arena later in life.

Key Words in Religion, Media and Culture

Mara Einstein, Queens College, City University of New York, USA “This illuminating, thoughtful, and important analysis of faith branding explains a great deal about the current crossover of entertainment and religion in the US...Highly recommended.” —R. Ray, Mississippi State University, CHOICE

Edited by David Morgan, Christ College Valparaiso University, USA ”From The Passion of the Christ to the presumed ‘clash of civilizations’, religion’s role in culture is increasingly contested and mediated. Key Words in Religion, Media, and Culture is a welcome and interdisciplinary contribution that maps the territory for those who aim to make sense of it all. Highlighting the important concepts guiding state-of-the-art research into religion, media, and culture, this book is bound to become an important and frequently consulted resource among scholars both seasoned and new to the field.” —Lynn Schofield Clark, author of From Angels to Aliens: Teenagers, the Media, and the Supernatural and editor of Religion, Media, and the Marketplace “David Morgan has assembled here a fine team of scholars to prove beyond a doubt that the intersections of religion, media, and culture constitute one of the most stimulating fields of inquiry around today. Definitions of religion and culture require renewed and robust readings in light of newer forms of (mass) mediation, and the contributors deliver the goods. This highly useful and theoretically sophisticated text will likely assume ‘ritual’ status in this emergent field.” —Rosalind I. J. Hackett, Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Religious Studies, University of Tennessee, USA June 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-44862-8: $120.00 Pb: 978-0-415-44863-5: $34.95 eBook: 978-0-203-89407-1

In a society overrun by commercial clutter, religion has become yet another product sold in the consumer marketplace, and faiths of all kinds must compete with a myriad of more entertaining and more convenient leisure activities. Brands of Faith argues that in order to compete effectively faiths have had to become brands — easily recognizable symbols and spokespeople with whom religious prospects can make immediate connections Mara Einstein shows how religious branding has expanded over the past twenty years to create a blended world of commerce and faith where the sacred becomes secular and the secular sacred. In a series of fascinating case studies of faith brands, she explores the significance of branded church courses, such as Alpha and “The Purpose Driven Life,” megachurches, and the popularity of the televangelist Joel Olsteen and television presenter Oprah Winfrey, as well as the rise of Kaballah. She asks what the consequences of this religious marketing will be, and outlines the possible results of religious commercialism — good and bad. Repackaging religion — updating music, creating teen-targeted bibles — is justifiable and necessary. However, when the content becomes obscured, religion may lose its unique selling proposition — the very ability to raise us above the market. Series: Religion, Media and Culture

A history of religion and visual media in America

Stewart M. Hoover, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA

David Morgan, Christ College Valparaiso University, USA “Morgan...a leading scholar of religious visual culture, offers another solid volume that will push much of the future work in US religious history, and visual culture studies in new directions.” —S. B. Plate, Texas Christian University, CHOICE This is the history of the relationship between mass produced visual media and religion in the United States. It is a journey from the 1780s to the present - from early evangelical tracts to teenage witches and televangelists, and from illustrated books to contemporary cinema. David Morgan explores the cultural marketplace of public representation, showing how American religionists have made special use of visual media to instruct the public, to practice devotion and ritual, and to form children and converts. Examples include: •studying Jesus as an American idol •Jewish kitchens and Christian Parlors •Billy Sunday and Buffy the Vampire Slayer •Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the anti-slavery movement This unique perspective reveals the importance of visual media to the construction and practice of sectarian and national community in a nation of immigrants old and new, and the tensions between the assimilation and the preservation of ethnic and racial identities. As well as the contribution of visual media to the religious life of Christians and Jews, Morgan shows how images have informed the perceptions and practices of other religions in America, including New Age, Buddhist and Hindu spirituality, and Mormonism, Native American Religions and the Occult.

”Few, if any, media scholars are as capable as Stewart Hoover of writing this book. It provides an insightful review of religion’s generally neglected place in the history of media in modernity. The result is a subtle, profound and clear-sighted analysis of some of the most difficult questions that contemporary media and society raise, which I cannot recommend highly enough.” — Nick Couldry, London School of Economics, UK Looking at the everyday interaction of religion and media in our cultural lives, Hoover’s new book is a fascinating assessment of the state of modern religion. Recent years have produced a marked turn away from institutionalized religions towards more autonomous, individual forms of the search for spiritual meaning. Film, television, the music industry and the internet are central to this process, cutting through the monolithic assertions of world religions and giving access to more diverse and fragmented ideals. While the sheer volume and variety of information travelling through global media changes modes of religious thought and commitment, the human desire for spirituality also invigorates popular culture itself, recreating commodities — film blockbusters, world sport and popular music — as contexts for religious meanings.

Mother Teresa was one of the most written about and publicised women in modern times. Apart from Pope John Paul II, she was arguably the most advertised religious celebrity in the last quarter of the twentieth century. During her lifetime as well as posthumously, Mother Teresa continues to generate a huge level of interest and heated debate. Gëzim Alpion explores the significance of Mother Teresa to the mass media, to celebrity culture, to the Church and to various political groups. A section explores the ways different vested interests have sought to appropriate her after her death, and also examines Mother Teresa’s own attitude to her childhood and to the Balkan conflicts in the 1980s and 1990s. This book sheds a new and fascinating light upon this remarkable and influential woman, which will intrigue followers of Mother Teresa and those who study the vagaries of stardom and celebrity culture. 2006: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 304pp Pb: 978-0-415-39247-1: $34.95

The Religion and Film Reader Edited by Jolyon Mitchell, University of Edinburgh, UK and S. Brent Plate, Texas Christian University, USA “This is a genuinely useful addition to the maturing literature on religion and film. The imaginative selection of readings makes this book an invaluable resource that will broaden and deepen the insights of students and researchers in this field. This will undoubtedly become a key text for any serious course exploring the various ways in which religion and film intersect.” — Gordon Lynch, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Birkbeck, University of London, UK Edited by leading experts in the field, The Religion and Film Reader brings together the key writings in this exciting and dynamic discipline. In over sixty interviews, essays and reviews from numerous directors, film critics and scholars, this eagerly anticipated anthology offers the most complete survey of this emerging field to date. Film is now widely studied and researched in theology and religious studies departments, The Religion and Film Reader is therefore ideal for students and researchers, introduced and organized into the following thematic and chronological sections, each with an introduction by the editors: •the dawn of cinema: adherents and detractors •the birth of film theory: realism, formalism, and religious vision •directors and critics: global perspectives — African and Middle-Eastern perspectives; Asian and Australisian perspectives; European perspectives; South and North American perspectives

“By starting from issues explored in particular films, the book helps to ground theological debates in relation to human questions and experience. This really helps to bring the discipline of theology alive, and I wish this book had been available when I was a theology student.” — Gordon Lynch, Senior Lecturer in Religion and Culture, University of Birmingham, UK “Marsh is correct! Theology is not just cognitive, but affective, aesthetic and ethical. And film has become a primary resource. Here is a helpful work-book for culturally-savy theology students and theologically-interested film-lovers.” — Robert K. Johnston, author of Reel Spirituality: Theology and Film in Dialogue Drawing a comparison between religion and cinema-going, this text examines a range of contemporary films in relation to key theological concepts. Cinema as a religion-like activity is explored through cognitive, affective, aesthetic and ethical levels, identifying the religious aspects in the social practice of cinema-going.

John Lyden has brought together a lively and experienced team of contributors to investigate the ways in which the exciting subject of religion and film is developing. The Routledge Companion to Religion and Film studies both religion-in-film, in which religion is the object of study enabling us to examine how religions are depicted by and within films, and religion as the subject of study when scholars seek to analyse films. This Companion also includes recognition of the history of the interaction of religion and film, in the ways that religious communities and their leaders have reacted to film (from censoring it to embracing it). This invaluable book offers an overview of the field, its development, current research and the ways in which it is developing. Topics range from beginnings and historical approaches through depictions of religions in film, to academic perspectives and key concepts.

Encyclopedia of Islamic Civilization and Religion Edited by Ian Richard Netton, University of Leeds, UK

“Highly Recommended” —Booklist The Encyclopedia of Hinduism contains over 900 entries reflecting recent advances in scholarship which have raised new theoretical and methodological issues as well as identifying new areas of study which have not been addressed previously. The debate over the term ‘Hinduism’ in the light of postOrientalist critiques is just one example of how once standard academic frameworks have been called into question. Entries range from 150-word definitions of terms and concepts to 5,000-word indepth investigations of major topics. The Encyclopedia covers all aspects of Hinduism but departs from other works in including more ethnographic and contemporary material in contrast to an exclusively textual and historical approach. It includes a broad range of subject matter such as: historical developments (among them nineteenth and twentieth century reform and revival); geographical distribution (especially the diaspora); major and minor movements; philosophies and theologies; scriptures; deities; temples and sacred sites; pilgrimages; festivals; rites of passage; worship; religious arts (sculpture, architecture, music, dance, etc.); religious sciences (e.g. astrology); biographies of leading figures; local and regional traditions; caste and untouchability; feminism and women’s religion; nationalism and the Hindu radical right; and new religious movements. The history of study and the role of important scholars past and present are also discussed.

The Encyclopedia of Islamic Civilization and Religion provides scholarly coverage of the religion, culture and history of the Islamic world, at a time when that world is undergoing considerable change and is a focus of international study and debate. The non-Muslim world’s perceptions of Islam have often tended to be dominated by unrepresentative radical extremist movements and media interpretations of events involving such movements, to the extent that many people are unaware of the depth and variety of Islamic thought. At the same time, many who have had a formal training in Islamic studies have tended to concentrate on the traditional, to the exclusion of the contemporary. The Encyclopedia of Islamic Civilization and Religion covers the full range of Islamic thought, in historical depth, but it also provides substantial coverage of contemporary trends across the Muslim world. With well over a thousand entries on Islamic theology, history, arts, science, law and institutions, and coverage of Islam in individual countries and cities around the world, the Encyclopedia of Islamic Civilization and Religion provides an extremely rich resource for students and researchers in religious studies and Middle Eastern studies. Entries are cross-referenced and bibliographies are provided. 2007: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 872pp Hb: 978-0-7007-1588-6: $310.00 £155.00

Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries Edited by Jonathan Bonk The Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries examines the nature and effects of missionary work around the world and throughout history, analyzing how secular and clerical people from major religions (especially Christianity, Buddhism and Islam) have brought social changes along with words of a new faith.

Accessibility to all levels of reader has been a priority and no previous knowledge is assumed. However, the in-depth larger entries and the design of the work in line with the latest scholarly advances means that the volume will be of considerable interest to specialists. The whole is cross-referenced and bibliographies attach to the larger entries. There is a full index. 2007: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 1128pp Hb: 978-0-7007-1267-0: $265.00 £135.00

Encyclopedia of the Historical Jesus Edited by Craig A. Evans, Acadia Divinity College, Canada This Encyclopedia brings together the vast array of historical research into the reality of the man, the teachings, the acts, and the events ascribed to him that have served as the foundational story of one of the world’s central religions. This kind of historiography is not biography. The historical study of the Jesus stories and the transmission of these stories through time have been of seminal importance to historians of religion. Critical historical examination has provided a way for scholars of Christianity for centuries to analyze the roots of legend and religion in a way that allows scholars an escape from the confines of dogma, belief, and theological interpretation. In recent years, historical Jesus studies have opened up important discussions concerning anti-Semitism and early Christianity and the political and ideological filtering of the Jesus story of early Christianity through the Roman empire and beyond. Entries will cover the classical studies that initiated the new historiography, the theoretical discussions about authenticating the historical record, the examination of sources that have led to the western understanding of Jesus’ teachings and disseminated myth of the events concerning Jesus’ birth and death. Subject areas include: •The history of the historical study of the New Testament: major contributors and their works •Theoretical issues and concepts •Methodologies and criteria •Historical genres and rhetorical styles in the story of Jesus •Historical and rhetorical context of martyrdom and messianism •Historical teachings of Jesus •Teachings within historical context of ethics •Titles of Jesus •Historical events in the life of Jesus •Historical figures in the life of Jesus •Historical use of Biblical figures referenced in the Gospels •Places and regions •Institutions •The history of the New Testament within the culture, politics, and law of the Roman Empire August 2008: 8-1/2 x 11: 752pp Hb: 978-0-415-97569-8: $190.00
