9780791455227: Religious Studies, Theology, and the University: Conflicting Maps, Changing Terrain

This collection explores the highly contested relationship of religious studies and theology and the place of each, if any, in secular institutions of higher education. The founding narrative of religious studies, with its sharp distinction between teaching religion and teaching about religion, grows less compelling in the face of globalization and the erosion of modernism. These essays take up the challenge of thinking through the identity and borders of religious studies and theology for our time. Reflecting a broad range of positions, the authors explore the religious/secular conceptual landscape that has dominated the modern West, and in the process address the revision of the academic study of religion and theology now underway.

Review:

On the whole, the authors are scholars whose views on the subject we want to hear, with a good mix of seasoned and new voices. They present us with several good descriptions of the complex, ambiguous, historical, and conceptual relationships of theology and religious studies. William E. Paden, author of Religious Worlds: The Comparative Study of Religion, Second Edition and Interpreting the Sacred: Ways of Viewing Religion
The usefulness of this book cannot be overstressed. It speaks to the new developments toward global issues and pluralism now being engaged in new ways by scholars in related fields. Robert M. Garvin, University at Albany, State University of New York"
