Reading Religion in Text and Context : Reflections of Faith and Practice in Religious Materials, Hardback Book

Reading Religion in Text and Context : Reflections of Faith and Practice in Religious Materials Hardback

Edited by Elisabeth Arweck

Part of the Theology and Religion in Interdisciplinary Perspective Series in Association with the BSA Sociology series

Description

To what extent is religion inherently textual? What might the term 'textual' mean in relation to religious faith and practice?

These are the two key questions addressed by the eleven thought-provoking essays collected in this volume.

Accounts of the content and structure of sacred texts are commonplace.

The rather more adventurous aim of this book is to disclose (within the context of religion) the various ways in which meaning can be read of more or less obviously sacred writing and from discourses such as the body, the built and natural environment, drama and ritual.
