Continuum advances in religious studies


Editors Bird (theology, Queen Margaret U., Edinburgh) and Smith (philosophic and religious studies, U. of Leeds, UK) have collected essays from scholars from all over the world on the differences between the teaching of theology in higher learning facilities and delivering the messages of the specific religions involved. Using the proceedings from a 2006 conference on Philosophical and Religious Studies held in Oxford, England, this volume explores such topics as socio-cultural and non-theological definitions of religion, theological studies for multi-faith and secular societies and the role of theology in Iranian universities. A concluding essay analyzes current attitudes toward the Bible as the central document for research in Christian studies.
