  • From Theology to Theological Thinkingby Jean-Yves Lacoste; Jeffrey Bloechl; W. Chris Hackett

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 29.50

    "Christian philosophy" is commonly regarded as an oxymoron, philosophy being thought incompatible with the assumptions and conclusions required by religious faith. According to this way of thinking, philosophy and theology must forever remain distinct. In From Theology to Theological Thinking, Jean-Yves Lacoste takes a different approach. Stepping... more...

  • Postmodernism and the Revolution in Religious Theoryby Carl Raschke

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 29.50

    While the academic study of religion has increased almost exponentially in the past fifty years, general theories of religion have been in significant decline. In his new book, Carl Raschke offers the first systematic exploration of how the postmodern philosophical theories of Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Alain Badiou, and Slavoj ˇi˛ek have contributed significantly... more...

  • Christian Fundamentalism and the Culture of Disenchantmentby Paul Maltby

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 24.50

    Within the familiar clash of religious conservatism and secular liberalism Paul Maltby finds a deeper discord: an antipathy between Christian fundamentalism and the postmodern culture of disenchantment. Arguing that each camp represents the poles of America's virulent culture wars, he shows how the cultural identity, lifestyle, and political commitments... more...

  • The Way of the 88 Templesby Robert C. Sibley

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 23.95

    Compelled to seek something more than what modern society has to offer, Robert Sibley turned to an ancient setting for help in recovering what has been lost. The Henro Michi is one of the oldest and most famous pilgrimage routes in Japan. It consists of a circuit of eighty-eight temples around the perimeter of Shikoku, the smallest of Japan's four... more...

  • Freud and Augustine in Dialogueby William B. Parsons

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 22.50

    "It is arguably the case," writes William Parsons, "that no two figures have had more influence on the course of Western introspective thought than Freud and Augustine." Yet it is commonly assumed that Freud and Augustine would have nothing to say to each other with regard to spirituality or mysticism, given the former's alleged antipathy to religion... more...

  • The Way of the Starsby Robert C. Sibley

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 23.95

    Since medieval times, pilgrimages have been a popular religious or spiritual undertaking. Even today, between seventy and one hundred million people a year make pilgrimages, if not for expressly religious reasons, then for an alternative to secular goals and the preoccupation with consumption and entertainment characteristic of contemporary life.... more...

  • Textual Intimacyby Wesley A. Kort

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 22.50

    Given its affinity with questions of identity, autobiography offers a way into the interior space between author and reader, especially when writers define themselves in terms of religion. In his exploration of this "textual intimacy," Wesley Kort begins with a theorization of what it means to say who one is and how one's self-account as a religious... more...

  • Rethinking the Messianic Idea in Judaismby Michael L. Morgan; Steven Weitzman

    Indiana University Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Over the centuries, the messianic tradition has provided the language through which modern Jewish philosophers, socialists, and Zionists envisioned a utopian future. Michael L. Morgan, Steven Weitzman, and an international group of leading scholars ask new questions and provide new ways of thinking about this enduring Jewish idea. Using the writings... more...

  • Die Macht des Mythosby Christian Danz; Werner Schüßler

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    This volume engages in the first systematic exploration of Paul Tillich?s understanding of myth. The essays describe the evolution of the notion of myth since the Enlightenment along with the progression of Tillich?s own ideas about myth throughout his works, in the context of contemporary discourse. In this way, the volume elucidates... more...
