Theology and the Anthropology of Christian Life

Joel Robbins

  • Reconsiders key topics in anthropological theory through the categories of theological argument.
  • Offers careful readings of works by major theologians that put them into dialogue both with anthropological theory and with rich ethnographic materials from around the world.
  • Explores how recent debates about the nature of the secular can open up rich spaces of interdisciplinary dialogue.
  • The book is clearly written and accessible even in its approach to complex theoretical arguments.
