'David Jasper's The Study of Literature and Religion is a foundational text. The scholarship is reliable and astute; the interdisciplinary approach is exemplary. I cannot imagine a better introduction to this new Macmillan series'. Robert Detweiler 'A learned, dense and often allusive book which tries to move the current discussion about the relation between religion and literature on to a new level of seriousness'. John Barton, Theological Book Review 'Works that are so frankly and broadly exploratory are rare'. Academic Library Book Review 'His style is dense, though never impenetrable, and his argument for the interdependence of literature and religion is sustained with confidence and perceptiveness through a number of different methodological approaches'. Brian Horne, Times Literary Supplement
