Rethinking Religion in India The Colonial Construction of Hinduism

• explores the major events and figures of the history of Christian thought, while drawing attention to significant voices which have often been suppressed • analyses the impact on Christian thought of widely discussed events such as The Great Schism, the Scientific Revolution, and Modernism

Jacqueline G Suthren Hirst, University of Manchester, UK, John Zavos and Nile Green, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

While existing literature tends to focus on the majority religions of Hinduism and Buddhism, much less attention is given to Jainism, Sikhism, Islam or Christianity. This valuable resource explores the important role which the minority traditions play in the religious life of the subcontinent, covering popular as well as elite expressions of religious faith. By examining the realities of religious life, and the ways in which the traditions are practiced on the ground, this book provides an illuminating introduction to Asian religions.

Reasonable Faith John Haldane, St. Andrews University, UK

In this awaited follow up to his book Faithful Reason, the well-known philosopher and Catholic thinker John Haldane brings his unrivalled insight to bear on questions of the existence of God and the nature and destiny of the human soul. His arguments weave elements drawn from philosophy of mind, epistemology and aesthetics, together with recurrent features of human experience to create a structure that simultaneously frames and supports ideas such as that the cosmos is a creation, human beings transcend their material composition, and that human fulfillment lies beyond death. This volume blends themes from Aquinas with insights drawn from analytical philosophy and further establishes John Haldane as the leading ’analytical thomist’.

The first textbook to encourage critical thinking about the relationships between the environment and religious beliefs and practices, it also provides an expansive overview of the academic field of religion and ecology as it has emerged in the past forty years. The contributors introduce students to new ways of thinking about environmental degradation and the responses of religious people.

Religion, Popular Culture and Everyday Life Edited by Gordon Lynch This major new reader introduces students to the growing field of religion and everyday culture.

Major topics included are: • the relationship between religion and media, and the ways in which new media are transforming religious structures and practices • How can contemporary forms of religion and spirituality be understood in the context of the structures and practices of late capitalist consumer society? • What can we learn about the nature of lived religion by exploring the ways in which people construct religious lives through various forms of cultural performance and consumption? • the role which material, visual and audio culture (and the sensory and aesthetic practices through which people engage with them) play in the construction of religious life-worlds

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

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.

Religion and Material Culture The Matter of Belief Edited by David Morgan, Duke University, USA

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.

Series: Routledge Research in Religion, Media and Culture Using the lens of ’visuality’ and ’materiality,’ this book offers insights into the everyday religious lives of Hindus as they strive to sustain theistic, devotional Hinduism in diasporic locations. Relying on primary ethnographic data, the book engages key thematics in the fields of material religion, religion and consumption and visual Hindu culture.

Doing Contextual Theology

Engaging with God, Scripture, and the World

Polydoxy

Angie Pears, Nottingham Trent University, UK

Edited by Tom Greggs, University of Chester, UK

A Critical Introduction Rachel Muers and Mike Higton, Exeter University, UK This book will provide a clear introduction to modern Christian theology (1789–present) accessible for undergraduates on a wide range of courses in theology and religious studies. It will not only present the subject matter in a way that makes clear its importance for contemporary issues, but will also be designed to develop core academic skills essential for students in this subject area.

Theology of Multiplicity and Relation

Inspired by the work of Catherine Keller, author of The Face of the Deep, Polydoxy introduces a new theological approach which is both grounded and groundbreaking. Reacting against reductive or nostalgic theological tendencies, the essays in this book take an exciting and creative approach to doing theology in the twenty-first century. Divided into parts, the first part lays out the theological agenda of Polydoxy, while an impressive array of scholars explore key theological topics in the light of relationality and multiplicity in the second and third sections.
