about

Research is directed by normative standards which need to be transparent in order to secure the quality of the scholarly discussion. The aim of this book is to contribute to such transparency in relation to research on religion and theology representing a combination of empirical and normative claims themselves. What does this combination of empirical and normative claims imply for the normative standards of research? The contributions in this volume discuss different normative dimensions in contemporary research on religion and theology. Presenting articles from systematic theology, practical theology, sociology of religion, ethics, religious studies and missiology it covers a wide range of issues that are relevant for PhD students of theology and religious studies as well as for others who are involved in research on these topics.
Jan-Olav Henriksen is Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy of Religion at (MF) Norwegian School of Theology and Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Agder, Kristiansand (Norway). He is also Director of the Norwegian Interdisciplinary Research School Religion, Values, Society.
