Rethinking religion and literature in a series of chapters by leading international scholars, Reading the Abrahamic Faiths opens up a dialogue between Jewish, Christian, Islamic and Post-Secular literary cultures. Literary studies has absorbed religion as another interdisciplinary mode of inquiry without always attending to its multifacted potential to question ideologically neutral readings of culture, belief, emotion, politics and inequality. In response, Reading the Abrahamic Faiths contributes to a reevaluation of the nexus between religion and literature that is socially, affectively and materially determined in its sensitivity to the expression of belief. Each section Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Post-Secularism is introduced by a specialist in these respective areas to introduce the critical readings of the texts and discourses that follow.... the Annunciation continues to engage the contemporary imagination, and still has the potential to be a source of existential questions or indeed answers for readers of contemporary world literature. ...
