  7. June Series of the Month: Routledge Studies in Religion and Politics

    This series aims to publish high quality works on the topic of the resurgence of political forms of religion in both national and international contexts. This trend has been especially noticeable in the post-cold war era (that is, since the late 1980s). It has affected all the ‘world religions’ (including, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism) in various parts of the world (such as, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa).

    The series welcomes books that use a variety of approaches to the subject, drawing on scholarship from political science, international relations, security studies, and contemporary history.

  8. June Book of the Month - Systematic Theology and Climate Change:Ecumenical Perspectives

    "This exemplary work cuts new roads through a dense and intractable global problem: human destruction of our planetary environment. Here sharp minds venture into scientific complexities where most systematic theologians fear to tread. Their collective depth, range, and sophistication -- both scientific and theological -- opens the way to profound re-appropriations of Christian doctrine. Both faithfully traditional and highly innovative, the volume is a tour de force in both ecological ethics and Christian theology." – Lisa Sowle Cahill, Boston College, USA

  9. May Book of the Month: Media, Religion and Culture, An Introduction

    Religion has always been shaped by the media of its time, and today we live in a media culture that informs much of what we think and how we behave. Religious believers, communities and institutions use media as tools to communicate, but also as locations where they construct and express identity, practice religion, and build community.

    This lively book offers a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary field of religion, media, and culture. It explores:

    • the religious content of media texts and the reception of those texts by religious consumers who appropriate and reuse them in their own religious work;
    • how new forms of media provide fresh locations within which new religious voices emerge, people reimagine the "task" of religion, and develop and perform religious identity.
       
  10. May Series of the Month: Routledge Religion in Contemporary Asia

    Much work on contemporary religion in Asia considers the subject from the perspective of the great religions, oftentimes focusing on the development of official beliefs, and the development of formal institutions. The books in this series, on the other hand, examine the actual practice of religion in everyday life in modern Asian societies. They reveal a very rich picture of varying religious practices, many of them new and non-traditional. The series welcomes innovative approaches to theory and methods in the study of religion and religions, and work which considers religion in relation to culture, politics, ethnicity or gender.
