Editorial Reviews

"This book is a timely and much-needed intervention in the study of Christian theology and critical theory. It represents the best of Christian reflection on contemporary movements in critical theory, as well as on the roots of the discipline itself in theological tradition. The contributors analyse ethical criticism, animal rights discourse, queer theory, postfeminism, and the ‘return to religion’ of Badiou and Žižek, among others, in the light of Christian theology, and suggest new ways of reading literary and cultural texts on the basis of these exchanges. Essential reading for scholars of contemporary culture, theory and religion."- Luke Ferretter, Assistant Professor of English, Baylor University, USA
