religious studies 2nd Edition

Why Gods Persist A Scientific Approach to Religion Robert Hinde, University of Cambridge, UK

’Robert Hinde, the respected elder statesman of the science in which I was trained, is a passionate humanitarian, of mature wisdom and legendarily sharp intellect. Though no more religious than I am, he is penetratingly critical of the approach that I and others have taken, and we have to listen to him. He makes the convincing case that it is not enough to be against religion. Whether or not you call it a delusion (as I would, but he would be too polite), you have to understand its attractions and its motivations. Robert Hinde is superbly qualified to aid our understanding.’ – Richard Dawkins, Author of The God Delusion What is it about religion that appeals to people? Why do religions and religious beliefs persist in the face of increasing secularization, harsh criticism and even political persecution? Robert Hinde argues that it is not enough simply to criticize religion, we must understand it – not only how it causes so much conflict, but also how it brings comfort to many. Hinde, a distinguished scientist, draws on a wide range of psychological, developmental and evolutionary research to explore this fascinating question. This second edition of Why Gods Persist is designed for everyone interested in the subject, either as a student of psychology and anthropology of religion or as a follower of the current controversies over the value of religious belief.

Edited by John Hinnells, Liverpool Hope University, UK and Robinson College, University of Cambridge, UK

’The second edition of The Routledge Companion to the Study of Religion is even better than the first edition. It provides a great overview of “religious studies” as a cluster of disciplines, of major issues such as secularization and the rise of spirituality and of fundamentalism, and of religions in the real world of politics, economy, science, and media.’ – Willem B. Drees, Leiden University, the Netherlands, and Editor of Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science The Routledge Companion to the Study of Religion is a major resource for 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, this new edition: • includes eight new chapters, including post-structuralism, religion and economics, religion and the environment, religion and popular culture, and sacred space • surveys the history of religious studies and the key disciplinary approaches

The Study of Religion: A Reader John S. Harding and Hillary Rodrigues, both at University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada Religious studies draws on work by anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers, theologians, and others for an understanding of its subject matter. Many influential works are not written by specialist scholars in religious studies, but have still had a notable impact on our understanding of the concept of religion, of particular religious ideas, or on how religion should be studied. It is therefore essential for any student to be familiar with some, if not most, of these writings. This new Reader introduces students of religion to its most common current perspectives and approaches, and provides them with an understanding of how the discipline developed. Each section includes an introduction and suggestions for further reading, and can be used alongside the editors’ accompanying textbook, Introduction to the Study of Religion.

Contemporary Theories of Religion

NEW IN PAPERBACK

A Critical Companion

A Global View

Edited by Michael Stausberg, University of Bergen, Norway

’It is ironic that scholars usually cite their predecessors when discussing theories of religion, as if theories were a precious relic from a prior age. With Michael Stausberg’s new volume this odd sort of ancestor worship comes to an end, for readers now have no excuse not to be familiar with theories of religions origin and function-theories that take well beyond the work of our ancestors.’ – Russell McCutcheon, University of Alabama, USA Interest in theories of religion has never been greater. Scholars debate single theoretical approaches in different scholarly journals, while the ‘new atheists’ such as Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett criticize the whole idea of religion. For everyone eager to understand the current state of the field, Contemporary Theories of Religion surveys the neglected landscape in its totality.

Michael Stausberg brings together leading scholars of the field to review and discuss seventeen contemporary theories of religion. As well as scholars of religion, it features anthropologists, archaeologists, classicists, evolutionary biologists, philosophers, and sociologists. Each chapter provides students with background information on the theoretician, a presentation of the theory’s basic principles, an analysis of basic assumptions, and a review of previous critiques. Selected Contents: Introduction 1. Cognitive Structures and Religio-Cultural Systems 2. From Neo-Tylorianism to the Cognitive Science of Religion 3. Religion at the Intersection of Need and Violence 4. Ritual as the Heart of Culture and of Religion 5. Religion as Rational Choice: The So-Called New Paradigm in the Sociology of Religion 6. Ritual as a System of Communication 7. Naturally Counterintuitive Evolutionary Byproducts 8. Phylogony of the Gods, or, how to Naturalize Religion 9. Boundary Maintenance: Religion as Organic-Cultural Flows 10. Roots in the Brain: The Origin and Explanation of Religion 11. The Atheistic Approach in the Cognitive Science of Religion 12.

Introducing Anthropology of Religion Culture to the Ultimate 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, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA

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 behaviour. The second part of the book analyzes religion in the modern world, violence, fundamentalism, and key world religions and new religious movements. 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 World Religions

2nd Edition

Victoria Kennick Urubshurow, University of Maryland, USA

Ninian Smart

’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. The coverage is comprehensive and the emphasis throughout is on comparative consideration of linked and contrasting beliefs and rituals, and I anticipate that many in the profession will find this an exciting text to use on their courses.’ – Oliver Leaman, University of Kentucky, USA Introducing World Religions offers an exciting 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.

Covering all corners of the globe, Ninian Smart’s work offers a comprehensive and global philosophical and religious picture.

The World’s Religions Continuities and Transformations Edited by Peter B. Clarke, King’s College, University of London, UK and University of Oxford, UK and Peter Beyer, University of Ontario, Ottawa, Canada This comprehensive volume focuses on the world’s religions and the changes they have undergone as they become more global and diverse in form. It explores the religions of the world not only in the regions with which they have been historically associated, but also looks at the new cultural and religious contexts in which they are developing. It considers the role of migration in the spread of religions by examining the issues raised for modern societies by the increasing interaction of different religions. The volume also addresses such central questions as the dynamics of religious innovation which is evidenced in the rise and impact of new religious and new spirituality movements in every continent. 2008: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 808pp Hb: 978-0-415-39725-4: $180.00 eBook: 978-0-203-87212-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415397254

2nd Edition

Introducing Buddhism

’Eliezer Segal has done an extremely impressive job of providing a broad introduction to Judaism within the scope of a single volume. Segal knows his subject matter thoroughly and writes with authority. What is more, Segal writes engagingly and in an accessible fashion. This book will surely be welcomed warmly by readers from a variety of backgrounds, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who wish to learn about the many facets of the Jewish religion as seen through the eyes of an expert and sympathetic ”insider”. Segal has done a great service to his readers and to contemporary Judaism.’ – Robert Brody, Hebrew University of Jerusalem 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.

ISLAM NEW

Reading the Qur’an in the Modern World Massimo Campanini Reading the Qur’an in the Modern World offers a lucid guide to the ways in which Muslims have read the Qur’an in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Massimo Campanini begins by exploring early approaches to the understanding of the Qur’an, including the Salafis and the construction of the Islamic Renaissance Movement. He then moves on to contrast the development of two major schools: the traditionalists and the ’scientific’ interpreters. These were followed by the phenomenologists, who created a lively and original approach to exegesis. He explores the radical ideas of Sayyid Qutb and his followers, which are significant part of what has become known as political Islamism. Lastly he explores the idea of exegesis as a liberation theology, through the work of Esack and Wadud. Students taking courses on the interpretation of the Qur’an should find this an invaluable aid to their study; all those interested in how Muslims have understood the Qur’an in the contemporary period will also find this essential reading.

Christian Spirituality: The Classics is a unique and comprehensive guide to thirty key Christian spirituality texts. Ranging from Origen and Augustine to Jonathan Edwards, Thérèse of Lisieux and Thomas Merton, it offers a view of the texts which is founded in scholarship, but which also presents them as living documents that invite – even compel – contemplative reflection and existential response. Each chapter briefly describes the classic text’s author and audience, gives a synopsis of its contents, suggests some of its influence in history, and then explores aspects of the text’s meaning for readers today. Key themes include: • What is the meaning of life? • How can human beings find truth? • How can they discover who they really are? • How can they live together in peace? • How can they live more fully in God’s presence in this world and be united with God in the world to come? The scholars who have written these chapters are all experts on their respective topics, but they wear their learning lightly. Anyone wishing to discover the riches of Christian spirituality will find this the ideal introduction and should be able to progress to a deeper understanding of the texts themselves.

The Routledge Companion to Christian History

In this introduction to the life and works of this important leader of the early church, we gain a more accurate picture of the circumstances and pressures which were brought to bear on his pontificate. A brief introduction surveys the scanty sources which document Leo’s early life, and sets his pontificate in its historical context, as the Western Roman Empire went into serious decline, and Rome lost its former status as the western capital. Annotated translations of various excerpts of Leo’s letters and homilies are organized around four themes dealing with specific aspects of Leo’s activity as bishop of Rome: • Leo as spiritual adviser on the life of the faithful • Leo as opponent of heresy • the bishop of Rome as civic and ecclesiastical administrator • Leo and the primacy of Rome. Taking each of these key elements of Leo’s pontifical activities into account, we gain a more balanced picture of the context and contribution of his best-known writings on Christology. This volume offers an affordable introduction to the subject for both teachers and students of ancient and medieval Christianity.

Understanding Secularisation, 1800–2000

Their Lives and Legacies Throughout the Ages

Callum G. Brown, University of Dundee, UK

Ursula King

Women, Gender and Religious Cultures in Britain, 1800–1940

Series: Christianity and Society in the Modern World

Ursula King’s Christian Mystics tells the story of sixty men and women whose mystical devotion to God transformed the times in which they lived and still affects our present-day search for spiritual meaning.

The Death of Christian Britain

The Death of Christian Britain examines how the nation’s dominant religious culture has been destroyed. Callum G. Brown challenges the generally held view that secularization was a long and gradual process dating from the industrial revolution. Instead, he argues that it has been a catastrophic and abrupt cultural revolution starting in the 1960s. Using the latest techniques of gender analysis, and by listening to people’s voices rather than purely counting heads, the book offers new formulations of religion and secularization. In this expanded second edition, Brown responds to commentary on his ideas, reviews the latest research, and provides new evidence to back his claims. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction 2. The Problem with ’Religious Decline’ 3. The Salvation Economy 4. Angels: Women in Discourse and Narrative 1800–1950 5. Heathens: Men in Discourse and Narrative 1800–1950 6.

Studying Christian Spirituality David B. Perrin

’Dr. Perrin addresses an array of important issues in an impressive manner ... I believe that [this] work will make a significant contribution to an emerging field.’ – Kevin Gillespie, Loyola University, USA

This book provides a new introduction to the study of Christian spirituality, exploring it through the human sciences and ranging from philosophy and hermeneutics to psychology, history, sociology and anthropology. 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. 2007: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 368pp Hb: 978-0-415-39473-4: $130.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39474-1: $35.95 eBook: 978-0-203-94477-6 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415394741

Homily Service A Journal of The Liturgical Conference http://liturgicalconference.org Editor: Sarah Webb Phillips, The Liturgical Conference, USA

Edited by Sue Morgan, University of Chichester, UK and Jacqueline de Vries, Augsburg College, Minneapolis, USA The history of religion is undergoing a reformation. New and renewed interest in religion and spirituality has produced a wealth of scholarship on a diverse range of topics; from a revaluation of the secularization thesis to religion’s role in the creation of modern sexual identities. A new chronological framework is one of the most significant developments. Historians of religion and spirituality are now drawing attention to the twentieth century, challenging the existing picture of unbelief and secularisation. Another significant development is the rejection of paradigms that cast religion as a monolithically patriarchal phenomenon. This collection is the first inclusive historical examination of modern British women, gender and religion which brings these two scholarly trends together. Thematic rather than denominational in its approach, it provides the reader with a clear, comprehensive and comparative overview of the heterogenous cultural systems that shaped and were shaped by women’s religious beliefs and practices. Chapters cover the wide range of religious cultures and cultural productions in which women were engaged: the family, sexuality, philanthropy, missionary work and empire, female religious communities, revivals, feminist politics, and women’s religious writing. Including case studies, analysis of existing scholarship in the field, and with a British rather than Anglo-centric approach, this is an ideal book for anyone interested in women’s religious experiences across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Secularism and Religion in Jewish-Israeli Politics

’Judaism by Dan Cohn-Sherbok is the most comprehensive introduction to Judaism available to American undergraduates.

Many of my students keep this book as a future reference work.’ – Rivka Ulmer, Bucknell University, USA Written by an experienced university teacher, who is also a scholar and rabbi, this extensive textbook presents an unrivalled guide to the history, belief and practice of Judaism.

It also explores the early modern period and the development of Jewry throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Extracts from primary sources are used to enliven the narrative and provide concrete examples of Jewish civilization.

Mahayana Buddhism Series: The Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices

‘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, Stanford University, USA 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. Paul Williams’ Mahayana Buddhism is widely regarded as the standard introduction to the field, used internationally for teaching and research and has been translated into several European and Asian languages. This second edition has been fully revised throughout in the light of the wealth of new studies and focuses on the religion’s diversity and richness. It includes much more material on China and Japan, with appropriate reference to Nepal, and for students who wish to carry their study further there is a much-expanded bibliography and extensive footnotes and crossreferencing. Everyone studying this important tradition will find Williams’ book the ideal companion to their studies. 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 456pp Hb: 978-0-415-35652-7: $115.00 Pb: 978-0-415-35653-4: $35.95 eBook: 978-0-203-42847-4 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415356534 • Available as a complimentary copy

HINDUISM NEW 2nd Edition

Hindus Their Religious Beliefs and Practices Julius Lipner, University of Cambridge, UK Series: The Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices Julius Lipner’s Hindus is widely recognized as essential reading for everyone wishing to understand one of the world’s great religious traditions. The vast array of diverse beliefs and practices usually described as ‘Hindu’ has been notoriously difficult to corral under a single regulating theme. Julius Lipner provides not only a wide-ranging introduction to Hindu religious and cultural diversity but also suggests a way to characterize Hinduism as a distinct tradition that has survived and adapted to changing circumstances from ancient times to the present day. Lipner is a recognized authority on Hinduism’s polycentric emphasis, and his book is based on a lifetime of research and personal experience of his subject.

In this thoroughly revised and substantially enlarged second edition, students of Hinduism will find more coverage of the debate about Hindu origins, the nature and practice of Hindu worship, the role of women, the scope of dharma and morality, Hindu philosophical thought and the use of reason, and the way caste functions.

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 post-Orientalist critiques is just one example of how once standard academic frameworks have been called into question. 2007: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 1128pp Hb: 978-0-7007-1267-0: $270.00 Pb: 978-0-415-55623-1: $59.95 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415556231

Religion and Politics in South Asia Edited by Ali Riaz, Illinois State University, USA Religion and Politics in South Asia presents a comprehensive analysis of the interaction of religion and politics in six South Asian countries, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Contemporary Approaches James Crossley, University of Sheffield, UK Series: Reading Religious Texts Reading the New Testament offers an exciting and contemporary approach to the New Testament. Designed to help students think critically and in wide-ranging ways about the texts of the New Testament, it begins by analyzing the issues surrounding the question of translation. James Crossley also considers historical questions, particularly that of the historical Jesus, the biblical past and interpretation and identity. He looks at religion and the Bible, Christology, Judaism, and the role of Rome and the Emperor cult. The book investigates different ways of reading the Bible today, using frameworks of gender and class, colonialism and post-colonialism, politics and theology, autobiography and popular culture.

Dictionary of Biblical Criticism and Interpretation

Understanding the Social World of the New Testament

Stanley E. Porter

Edited by Dietmar Neufeld, University of British Columbia, Canada and Richard E. DeMaris, Valparaiso University, USA

Compiling the results from contemporary and exciting areas of research into one single important volume, this book stands ahead of its field in providing a comprehensive one-stop reference of biblical interpretation.

Examining a wide range of articles on many of the recognized interpreters including Augustine, Luther and Calvin, up to the modern figures of Martin Hengel and T.W. Manson, Stanley E. Porter expertly combines the study of biblical interpretation with the examination of the theological and philosophical preconceptions that have influenced it, and surveys the history of interpretation from different perspectives. Key perspectives studied include: • the historical dimension – addressing how interpretation has developed at various periods of time; from early Jewish exegesis to the historicalcritical method • the conceptual approach – looks at the various schools of thought that have generated biblical interpretation, and compares and contrasts competing conceptual models of interpretation • the personal perspective – addresses the reality of biblical interpretation by individuals who have helped plot the course of theological development. With relevant bibliographies and a guide to further reading, this Dictionary will be an extremely important reference held for many years, not only by libraries, but also by students, scholars, clergy and teachers of this fascinating and high-profile subject. 2006: 7-1/2 x 9-3/4: 424pp Hb: 978-0-415-20100-1: $250.00 Pb: 978-0-415-55274-5: $44.95 eBook: 978-0-203-96975-5 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415552745

Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament An International Journal of Nordic Theology Editor-in-Chief: Niels Peter Lemche, University of Copenhagen, Denmark When the Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament was first published in 1987, it was expected to become the principal forum of Scandinavian Old Testament research. Reality has surpassed the expectations of the founders, as Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament is rapidly becoming one of the major outlets of international Old Testament scholarship, although without losing its specific Scandinavian character. Volume 24, 2 issues per year Print ISSN: 0901-8328, Online ISSN: 1502-7244

The New Testament is a book of great significance in Western culture yet is often inaccessible to students because the modern world differs so significantly from the ancient Mediterranean one in which it was written. It is imperative to develop a cross-cultural understanding of the values of the ancient Mediterranean society from which the New Testament arose in order to fully appreciate the documents and the communities that they represent. Dietmar Neufeld and Richard E. DeMaris bring together biblical scholars with expertise in the social sciences to develop interpretative models for understanding such values as collectivism, kinship, memory, ethnicity, and honour, and to demonstrate how to apply these models to the New Testament texts. Kinship is illuminated by analysis of the Holy Family as well as to early Christian organizations; gender through a study of Paul’s view of women; and landscape and spatiality through a discussion of Jesus of Nazareth. This book is the ideal companion to study of the New Testament. Selected Contents: 1. Collectivism in Mediterranean Culture 2. Kinship and Family in the New Testament World 3. Constructions of Gender in the Imperial Roman World 4. Memory Theory: Cultural and Cognitive Approaches 5.

The New Testament in its Ritual World Richard E. DeMaris, Valparaiso University, USA

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. 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 160pp Hb: 978-0-415-43825-4: $115.00 Pb: 978-0-415-43826-1: $36.95 eBook: 978-0-203-93079-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415438261

ALTERNATIVE SPIRITUALITIES Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements Edited by Peter Clarke

’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 ... This is an outstanding reference source – scholarly, timely, important, and worth the price for academic libraries. Summing Up: Essential.’ – CHOICE 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. This Encyclopedia 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. 2005: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 720pp Hb: 978-0-415-26707-6: $295.00 Pb: 978-0-415-45383-7: $48.95 eBook: 978-0-203-48433-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415453837

Critical Realism and Spirituality Series: New Studies in Critical Realism and Spirituality

See page 3 for details

This book brings together ongoing debate over the existence and nature of God within the western philosophical tradition with consideration of the attempt by meta-Reality to transcend the philosophical, and spiritual divisions of West and East, by regrounding the relative in the absolute.

’Not only philosophers of all stripes, but also religious persons, scholars of religion and comparativists turn to the philosophy of religion as a crucial resource. Much work in the field has been rendered unhelpful by its narrow or exclusively Western focus. Here, finally, is a volume to fill the gap. With its comprehensive span of topics and chapters written by leading authorities, this will be a defining text for the emerging global approach to the philosophy of religion ... The most up-to-date and authoritative introduction to the immediate past and the immediate future of the discipline currently available.’ – Philip Clayton, Harvard University, USA ‘This book is distinguished by its comprehensive range and by the eminent list of philosophers who have written for it. It will be an indispensable guide to current thinking in the philosophy of religion.’ – Keith Ward, Christ Church College, Oxford, UK The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Religion is an indispensable guide and reference source to the major themes, movements, debates and topics in philosophy of religion. A team of renowned international contributors provide sixty-five accessible entries organized into nine clear parts: • philosophical issues in world religions • key figures in philosophy of religion • religious diversity • the theistic conception of God • arguments for the existence of God • arguments against the existence of God • philosophical theology • Christian theism • recent topics in philosophy of religion. Covering key world religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam, and key figures such as Augustine, Aquinas and Kierkegaard, the book explores the central topics in theism such as the ontological, cosmological and teleological arguments for God’s existence. Three final parts consider Catholicism, Protestantism, Eastern orthodoxy and current debates including phenomenology, reformed epistemology, religious experience, and religion and science. This is essential reading for anyone interested in philosophy, religion and related disciplines. 2007: 6-3/4 x 9-3/4: 736pp Hb: 978-0-415-38038-6: $190.00 Pb: 978-0-415-43553-6: $45.00 eBook: 978-0-203-87934-4

’I’ve never seen anything as good as this: pitch perfect, well-structured, coherent, cross-cultural.’ – Chris Fleming, University of Western Sydney, Australia

’A clear, systematic, engaging introduction to philosophy of religion. There is no better single volume that covers the contemporary and classical themes and arguments with greater skill, fairness, comprehensiveness and efficiency. This is a brilliant book for newcomers as well as advanced scholars who want to take a fresh look at philosophy of religion today.’ – Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College, USA Does God exist? What about evil and suffering? How does faith relate to science? Is there life after death? These questions fascinate everyone and lie at the heart of philosophy of religion. Chad Meister offers an up-to-date introduction to the field, focussing not only on traditional debates but also on contemporary concepts like the intelligent creator. Key topics, such as divine reality and the self and religious experience, are discussed in relation to different faiths. Introducing Philosophy of Religion: • offers a lucid overview of contemporary philosophy of religion • introduces the key figures in the history of philosophy of religion • explores the impact of religious diversity and pluralism • examines the main arguments for and against the existence of God and the nature of the divine

The nine sections cover:

• religious diversity • the nature and attributes of God • arguments for and against the existence of God • science • faith and miracles • the Self and human condition • religious experience • the problem of evil and suffering • death and the afterlife.

A Place of Springs Grace M. Jantzen Edited by Jeremy Carrette, University of Kent, UK and Morny Joy, University of Calgary, Canada Series: Death and the Displacement of Beauty In this book Grace M. Jantzen constructs a Quaker spirituality of beauty as a theological-philosophical response to a world preoccupied with death and violence. Having mapped the foundations of western cultural violence in the Greco-Roman period and the Judea-Christian tradition in Foundations of Violence and Violence to Eternity, she now offers her alternative vision. This vision is an original and creative feminist reading of the Quaker tradition, considering George Fox and the writings of Quaker women, exploring the themes of inner light and beauty as alternatives to violence and the obstacles to building such an alternative world. After showing how seventeenth-century Quakers offered a different option for modernity, she maps the philosophical and ethical implications of engaging with the world through beauty and its transforming power. Written for everyone interested in contemporary spirituality, it explains how Quaker ideas can provide a way to transform our violent world into one that celebrates life rather than death, peace rather than violence. This work is the second of two posthumous publications to complete Grace M. Jantzen’s Death and the Displacement of Beauty collection, which began with Foundations of Violence (Routledge, 2004).

Paul Tillich, Carl Jung and the Recovery of Religion John P. Dourley, Carleton University, Canada 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 P. 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. 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-46023-1: $90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-46024-8: $34.95 eBook: 978-0-203-92905-6 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415460248

Keeping Faith Philosophy and Race in America Cornel West

The Market, Happiness and Solidarity

Series: Routledge Classics

A Christian Perspective

Johan J. Graafland, Tilburg University, the Netherlands

’The sheer range of West’s interests and insights is staggering and exemplary: he appears equally comfortable talking about literature, ethics, art, jurisprudence, religion, and popular-cultural forms.’ – Artforum

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.

Series: Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy This book contributes to the Christian debate about the market economy, clarifying the links between ethical values, Christian belief and economics considering themes of welfare (and happiness), justice and virtues.

Near-Death Experiences Exploring the Mind-Body Connection Ornella Corazza, School of Oriental and African Studies, 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 cross-cultural approach and incorporating new medical research, it combines new theories of mind and body with contemporary research into how the brain functions. Ornella Corazza analyzes 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. 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. 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 192pp Hb: 978-0-415-45519-0: $110.00 Pb: 978-0-415-45520-6: $32.95 eBook: 978-0-203-92890-5 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415455206

MAJOR WORK – 4 Volume Set

William James

Psychology of Religion

Foreword by Micky James

Edited by Justin L. Barrett

Introductions by Eugene Taylor and Jeremy Carrette

Series: Critical Concepts in Religious Studies

Series: Routledge Classics

’Is life worth living? Yes, a thousand times yes when the world still holds such spirits as Professor James.’ – Gertrude Stein

A classic of American thought, this 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 examine seriously 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. 2008: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2: 432pp Pb: 978-0-415-77382-9: $23.95 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415773829

The Positive Psychology of Buddhism and Yoga

THEOLOGY NEW

Doing Contextual Theology Angie Pears, Nottingham Trent 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; and Body Theologies. Pears analyzes 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. Doing Contextual Theology offers students a clear and up-to-date survey of the field of contemporary liberation theology and provides them with a sound understanding of how contextual theology works in practice.

COMING SOON! Radical Orthodoxy

The Radical Orthodoxy Reader

An Introduction

Edited by John Milbank and Simon Oliver, both at University of Nottingham, UK

Simon Oliver, University of Nottingham, UK

Simon Oliver explores the origins and context of Radical Orthodoxy. He explains the arguments of the key thinkers with whom Radical Orthodoxy engages, and examines the contributions made to the field by leading theologians, as well as Radical Orthodoxy’s understanding of the nature of the theological challenge in our own time. Topics include:

• God and truth, faith and reason • language and praise • desire and the human person • Christ and reconciliation • politics and theology • culture and the Church. An essential text across denominations and academic disciplines, this is a far reaching and stimulating discussion on the impact and implications of this exciting area of contemporary theology. Selected Contents: 1. The Origins and Context of Radical Orthodoxy 2. God and Truth, Faith and Reason 3. Language and Praise 4. Desire and the Human Person 5. Christ and Reconciliation 6. Politics and Theology 7. Culture and the Church. Glossary. Index

This title is due to publish in 2011. Please visit www.routledge.com/religion for more information, official publication date, and prices.

The Radical Orthodoxy 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 pre-Enlightenment 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. 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. A concluding chapter on the future of Radical Orthodoxy by John Milbank is also included. Selected Contents: Acknowledgements. About this Reader Part 1: What is Radical Orthodoxy?

New Perspectives for Evangelical Theology Engaging with God, Scripture, and the World Edited by Tom Greggs, University of Chester, UK

’Tom Greggs has assembled a group of younger evangelical theologians to compose essays on core theological questions as well some pressing contemporary concerns. The contr ibutors – with courage, resolution, and some heavy artillery from within the great tradition of the Church – break down stereotypes, correct old courses, and build strong, constructive bridges. They are a future generation that is big with promise.’ – The Rev. Dr.Theol. Paul F.M. Zahl, Rector, All Saints Episcopal Church, USA In this exciting edited collection, Tom Greggs challenges us to think afresh about evangelical theology: where it is today, and where it is headed. Bringing together an outstanding group of young theologians to engage critically and constructively with traditional evangelical theology, the book seeks to open up the field and encourage ‘good practice’ in its study. New Perspectives for Evangelical Theology addresses some of the major themes within evangelical theology including election, the Holy Spirit, eschatology, and sanctification. It examines the Bible and the Church, and has chapters on worship and the sacraments. The final section investigates the interaction of evangelicalism and society, considering politics, sex and the body, and other faiths such as Judaism and Islam. Framed by a foreword from David F. Ford and a postscript from Richard B. Hays, the book is an invaluable collection of new thinking. Please visit www.routledge.com/9780415477338 for a full table of contents.

Beyond Monotheism

Theology on the Menu

A Theology of Multiplicity

Asceticism, Meat Eating and the Christian Diet

Laurel Schneider, Chicago Theological Seminary, USA

David Grumett, University of Exeter, UK and Rachel Muers, University of Leeds, UK ’A new generation of British theologians is taking the debate over diet to the highest levels of scholarly and moral reflection, and Grumett and Muers are leading the way. Rather than trying to score points or pick fights, they demonstrate how food lies at the intersection of the spiritual and the material, and they offer their readers the tools, including the historical context, to make eating one of the primary tasks of thinking. This is now the book to read in seminary and college courses in moral theology, or simply to deepen your own practice of thoughtful eating.’ – Stephen Webb, Wabash College, USA

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.

Food – what we eat, how much we eat, how it is produced and prepared, and its cultural and ecological significance – is an increasingly significant topic not only for scholars but for all of us. Theology on the Menu is the first systematic and historical assessment of Christian attitudes to food and its role in shaping Christian identity. David Grumett and Rachel Muers unfold a fascinating history of feasting and fasting, food regulations and resistance to regulation, the symbolism attached to particular foods, the relationship between diet and doctrine, and how food has shaped inter-religious encounters. Everyone interested in Christian approaches to food and diet or seeking to understand how theology can engage fruitfully with everyday life will find this book a stimulus and an inspiration.

Creation and Evolution Lenn E. Goodman, Vanderbilt University, USA

’Many of us feel that the time is long past due for declaring a truce in the war between evolution and theism. But making a cogent and sensible case for this conviction is not as easy as it sounds, so we cannot but welcome the decency and elegance which Goodman’s wise and widely informed deliberations come to our aid.’ – Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh, USA Can religion survive Darwinism? Do scientists entering the lab or heading for the field have to bracket, or reject outright, all religious commitments and convictions? Trenchantly laying out the evidence for natural selection and carefully following and underscoring the themes and theses of Genesis, Lenn E. Goodman traces the historical and conceptual backgrounds of today’s evolution controversies, revealing the deep complementarities of religion and the life sciences. Solidly researched and replete with scientific case studies, vignettes from intellectual history, and thoughtful argument, Creation and Evolution forthrightly exposes the strengths and weaknesses of today’s polarized battle camps. Religious and scientific fundamentalisms, Goodman shows, obscure the real biblical message and distort the deepest insights and richest findings of Darwinian science.

’Religion and Science in Context is a superb introduction to the relationship between science and religion. It is learned without being condescending, informed without being dogmatic, gentle without being soft. It will be required reading for those who want to engage in this important topic.’ – Michael Ruse, Florida State

University, USA How should we think about religion, science, and their relationship in modern society? Some religious groups oppose evolution; some atheists claim science is on their side. Others reconcile their beliefs with science, or consider science and faith to deal with fundamentally different aspects of human life. What indeed is religion: belief or trust in God’s existence? How do we distinguish sense from superstition? What does science have to say on such issues? Willem B. Drees considers contemporary discussions of these issues in Europe and North America, using examples from Christianity and religious naturalism, and reflections on Islam and Tibetan Buddhism. He argues that the scientific understanding leaves open certain ultimate questions, and thus allows for belief in a creator, but also for religious naturalism or serious agnosticism. By analyzing the place of values in a world of facts, and the quest for meaningful stories in a material world, Religion and Science in Context offers an original and self-critical analysis of the field, its assumptions and functions, and ends with a vision of its possible future.

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. 2008: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 168pp Hb: 978-0-415-47157-2: $100.00 Pb: 978-0-415-47158-9: $30.95 eBook: 978-0-203-89171-1

Theology, Creation, and Environmental Ethics From Creatio Ex Nihilo to Terra Nullius Whitney Bauman, Florida International University, USA Series: Routledge Studies in Religion 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.

Religious belief is rooted in and sustained by material practice, and this book provides an extraordinary insight into how it works on the ground. David Morgan has brought together a lively group of writers from religious studies, anthropology, history of art, and other disciplines, to investigate belief in everyday practices; in the objects, images, and spaces of religious devotion and in the sensations and feelings that are the medium of experience. By avoiding mind/body dualism, the study of religion can break new ground by examining embodiment, sensation, space, and performance. Materializing belief means taking a close look at what people do, how they feel, the objects they exchange and display, and the spaces in which they perform whether spontaneously or with scripted ceremony. Contributions to the volume examine religions around the world – from Korea and Brazil to North America, Europe, and Africa. Belief is explored in a wealth of contexts, including Tibetan Buddhism, the hajj, American suburbia and the world of dreams, visions and UFOs.

Frances King explores how people first learn to relate to the images and artefacts of religious belief within their domestic environments. As a sense of religious belonging is instilled on a daily basis in the home, it also becomes emotionally linked to family, community, and homeland, resulting in two different genealogies – one to do with faith and one to do with motherland – that become entangled.

When Religion Meets New Media Heidi Campbell, Texas A&M University, USA Series: Religion, Media and Culture

This lively book focuses on how different Jewish, Muslim, and Christian communities engage with new media. Rather than simply reject or accept new media, religious communities negotiate complex relationships with these technologies in light of their history and beliefs. Heidi Campbell suggests a method for studying these processes she calls the ’religious-social shaping of technology’ and students are asked to consider four key areas: religious tradition and history; contemporary community values and priorities; negotiation and innovating technology in light of the community; communal discourses applied to justify use. A wealth of examples such as the Christian e-vangelism movement, Modern Islamic discourses about computers and the rise of the Jewish kosher cell phone, demonstrate the dominant strategies which emerge for religious media users, as well as the unique motivations that guide specific groups. Selected Contents: Acknowledgements. Introduction 1. Understanding Religious Communities Responses to Media 2. Religious Communities and the Internet 3. Considering How Religious Communities Construct Technology 4. History and Tradition: How History and Tradition Shape Religious Communities Approach to New Media 5.

Key Words in Religion, Media and Culture Edited by David Morgan, Duke University, USA

The Lure of Images A History of Religion and Visual Media in America

’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

David Morgan, Duke University, USA

’This volume is a major intervention in the literature on religion, media and culture. Drawing together leading international scholars, it offers a conceptual map of the field to which students, teachers and researchers will refer for many years to come. The publication of Key Words in Religion, Media and Culture is a significant moment in the formation of this area of study, and sets a standard for cross-disciplinary collaboration and theoretical and methodological sophistication for future work in this area to follow.’ – Gordon Lynch, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

Brands of Faith Marketing Religion in a Commercial Age Mara Einstein, Queens College, USA Series: Religion, Media and Culture ’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.’ – CHOICE 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, mega-churches, 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. 2007: 6-1/4 x 9-1/4: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-40976-6: $125.00 Pb: 978-0-415-40977-3: $35.95 eBook: 978-0-203-93887-4 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415409773

Islam From Medina to the Magreb and from the Indes to Istanbul Christopher Tadgell Series: Architecture in Context ’The greatest value of this fine study lies in its enormous and detailed range, encompassing not only the Islamic heartlands, but traditions as diverse as those of the sultanates of North Africa, the earliest Moslem dynasties of India and the legacy of Tamerlane. A prodigious labour of love.’ – Colin Thubron This book examines the architectural tradition which developed with the religious culture of Islam. Essentially heir to the Roman development of space, it had its source in the ubiquitous courtyard house, while the development of the mosque as both place of worship and the centre of the community, its form a response to the requirements of prayer set out in the Koran, was given a range of forms as the conquests of Islam came up against the traditions of Egypt, Persia, India and China. The tradition developed further in tombs, palaces and fortifications, all of which are described and illustrated here. The architecture of Islam encompasses a high proportion of the world’s most beautiful buildings. This book covers the whole range in unprecedented breadth and depth. 2008: 674pp Hb: 978-0-415-43609-0: $99.95 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415436090

Nothingness: Tadao Ando’s Christian Sacred Space Jin Baek, Pennsylvania State University, USA Based round an interview with Tadao Ando, this book explores the influence of the Buddhist concept of nothingness on Ando’s Christian architecture, and sheds new light on the cultural significance of the buildings of one the world’s leading contemporary architects. Specifically, this book situates Ando’s churches, particularly his world-renowned Church of the Light (1989), within the legacy of nothingness expounded by Kitaro Nishida (1870–1945), the father of the Kyoto Philosophical School. Linking Ando’s Christian architecture with a philosophy originating in Mahayana Buddhism illuminates the relationship between the two religious systems, as well as tying Ando’s architecture to the influence of Nishida on post-war Japanese art and culture.
