New JAAR on theology, secularity, and politics

It’s relatively rare that a whole issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Religion is directly relevant to theologians, so for those of you who don’t receive it, I thought it worth mentioning that the most recent one (78.2, June 2010) is. The whole issue is devoted to theology, secularity, and political participation.

Table of contents:

  • “Post-secular Society: Christianity and the Dialectics of the Secular”—by Ingolf U. Dalferth
  • “After the Secular: Toward a Pragmatic Public Theology”—by Michael S. Hogue
  • “Turning to Narrative: Toward a Feminist Theological Interpretation of Political Participation and Personhood”—by Rosemary P. Carbine
  • “Pragmatism and Democracy: Assessing Jeffrey Stout’s Democracy and Tradition“—panel discussion with Cornel West, Richard Rorty, Stanley Hauerwas and Jeffrey Stout, edited by Jason Springs
  • “Radical Islam and Human Rights Values: A ‘Religious-Minded’ Critique of Secular Liberty, Equality, and Brotherhood”—by Jenna Reinbold
  • “The Return of Comparative Theology”—by Reid B. Locklin and Hugh Nicholson

There’s one other essay, “The Romans and Ritual Murder” by Celia E. Schultz, which the editor says was meant to belong to the last issue.

    I was looking at this too, earlier this week. I can’t wait to read it!

    Sorry for the unrelated comment but I just put a brief review of NPBCE if you are interested.

    How about a review of the Carbine article (for those of us not living near a university library)?
