About this book

This important collection of essays addresses the question of why scholars can no longer do without class in religious studies and theology, and what we can learn from a renewed engagement with the topic. This volume discusses what new discourses regarding notions of gender, ethnicity, and race might add to developments on notions of class.

Reviews

Timely and indispensable for working to change the plight of the 99 percent, this provocative text probes the intersection of religion, theology, and class through the lenses of global capital, gender, blackness, migration, and alternative economies. I highly recommend it. - Kwok Pui-lan, Professor, Episcopal Divinity School, USA

By gathering provocative analyses from international thinkers into one volume, Joerg Rieger raises embedded assumptions about social class and theology into a much-needed, critical light. Religion, Theology, and Class: Fresh Engagements After Long Silence provides a space for substantive conversations among scholars in religious studies, particularly as we consider building just relationships. - Stephanie Y. Mitchem, Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of South Carolina, USA
