Reading the Abrahamic Faiths

Full Product Description

Rethinking the field of religion and literature and including chapters by leading international scholars, "Reading the Abrahamic Faiths" opens up a three-way dialogue between Jewish, Islamic and Global Christian literary traditions. To date, the field of literary studies - so receptive to interdisciplinary issues of world culture, politics, philosophy and globalization - has been relatively unconcerned with the question of 'world religions' or interfaith dialogues. In response to this, this book begins to rethink the field of religion and literature from a 'world' perspective that challenges not only critical discourses that are inhospitable to religion but also those which embrace it. In addition, the book also explores post-secularism to reflect on questions of faith and belief through contemporary theory and world politics. Each section - Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Post-Secularism - is introduced by an eminent scholar of those respective fields and helps anchor the reader unfamiliar with these debates in the close readings of the literary texts and traditions that follow.

Reading the Abrahamic Faiths was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in December 2014. The ISBN for Reading the Abrahamic Faiths is 9781472509505.
