Theologically Engaged Anthropology

Edited by J. Derrick Lemons

  • Considers how historical and current social conditions influence the development of theology and anthropology
  • Responds to debates within anthropology about how and why to engage with theology and what such an interdisciplinary dialogue might look like
  • Provides anthropologists and theologians with a rationale and framework for using theology in anthropological research
  • Looks at the theory and methodology to offer ways to improve anthropological techniques for studying local theological practices in the field, and how fieldworkers can ask more theological informed questions
