This book represents the most comprehensive attempt to date to explore and test Derrida's contribution and influence on the study of theology, biblical studies, and the philosophy of religion. Over the course of the last decade, the writings of Derrida and the key concepts that emerge from his work such as the gift, apocalypse, hospitality, and messianism have wrought far-reaching and irresistible changes in the way that scholars approach biblical texts, comparative religious studies, and religious violence, for instance, as well as the way they understand basic religious themes as myth, creation, forgiveness, one-ness, and multiplicity. In addition to original contributions from over twenty highly-regarded scholars including John Caputo, Daniel Boyarin, Edith Wyschogrod, Tim Beal, and Gil Anidjar, the volume opens with a lengthy interview with Derrida.

Industry Reviews

""Derrida and Religion is a critical resource for following the fibrous trajectories of Derrida's exploration of the 'question of religion.' This extensive volume of essays by both well-known and upcoming scholars is extremmly helpful for placing the writings of the 'later "Derrida' in timely perspective, and illustrates how the philosophical strategy of deconstruction might prove as consequential for religious studies as it was in the last generation for literary criticism." -Carl A. Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies and Chair of the Department of Religion, University of Denver
