Praise For…

"This impressive and timely volume aims to correct the omission of race as an orienting factor in political-theological discussion, thus reinvigorating both race theory and political theology. It does an excellent job staking out some of the key claims in a very lively contemporary debate about the origins, uses, and destinies of religion in liberal and post-liberal politics."—Julia Reinhard Lupton, University of California, Irvine

"Race and Political Theology poses a set of refreshing and original questions about race and politics to the future of political theology. These questions are not confined to theology alone, however; they have wide theoretical and political implications. The volume is an important intervention within a field that has become oblivious and irresponsible regarding the question of race."—Ananda Abeysekara, Virginia Tech
