Studying Religion—Diverse Perspectives

Stephen Hunt
Issued Date: 30 Jun 2015


This review article focuses on three volumes that represent varying academic disciplines, and thus different perspectives. Each is fairly representatives of fresh ways of thinking and engaging in what is understood to be the current resurgence of religion and religiosity. Nonetheless, the tenor of the works reviewed varies considerably from conventional theorizing to critical analysis, poetic form, and theological reflection.
