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

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.
