Theology and Religion

From classical bible studies and the history of Christianity to Assyriology, the philosophy of religion, and critical religious studies, our theology and religion titles address a wide range of topics from both traditional and contemporary perspectives. Our portfolio focuses on critical editions, established

series, and commentaries in Christian theology and the philosophy of religion. We are also continually expanding our interdisciplinary and international portfolio and incorporating new approaches and research areas such as secularism research and spiritual care.
