Explores the relationship between religious studies and theology and the place of each in the modern, secular university.

This collection explores the highly contested relationship of religious studies and theology and the place of each, if any, in secular institutions of higher education. The founding narrative of religious studies, with its sharp distinction between teaching religion and teaching about religion, grows less compelling in the face of globalization and the erosion of modernism. These essays take up the challenge of thinking through the identity and borders of religious studies and theology for our time. Reflecting a broad range of positions, the authors explore the religious/secular conceptual landscape that has dominated the modern West, and in the process address the revision of the academic study of religion and theology now underway.

Linell E. Cady is Professor of Religious Studies at Arizona State University and author of Religion, Theology, and American Public Life, also published by SUNY Press. Delwin Brown is Harvey H. Potthoff Professor of Theology at the Iliff School of Theology. He has published several books, including Boundaries of Our Habitations: Tradition and Theological Construction, also published by SUNY Press.
