Derrida and Religion: Other Testaments represents the most comprehensive attempt to date to explore, adapt, and test Derrida's contributions and influence on the study of theology, biblical studies, and the philosophy of religion. With over twenty original essays from highly-respected scholars such as John Caputo, Daniel Boyarin, Edith Wyschogrod, Tim Beal, and Gil Anidjar, Derrida and Religion will quickly become the locus classicus for those interested in the increasingly vibrant work on religion and deconstruction and postmodernism.


"Derrida and Religion is a critical resource for following the fibrous trajectories of Derrida's exploration of the 'question of religion.' This extensive volume of essays by both well-known and upcoming scholars is extremmly helpful for placing the writings of the 'later Derrida' in timely perspective, and illustrates how the philosophical strategy of deconstruction might prove as consequential for religious studies as it was in the last generation for literary criticism." -- Carl A. Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies and Chair of the Department of Religion, University of Denver

"It is a wide-ranging and stimulating book, and the many threads that criss-cross the essays will be pulled at for a long time to come." -Matthew Chrulew, Monash University
