This is the first reader to gather primary sources from influential theorists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries in one place, presenting the wide-ranging and nuanced theoretical debates occurring in the field of religious studies. Each chapter focuses on a major theorist and contains:

· an introduction contextualizing their key ideas
· one or two selections representative of the theorist's innovative methodological approach(es)
· discussion questions to extend and deepen reader engagement

Divided in three sections, the first part includes foundational comparative debates:
· Mary Douglas's articulation of purity and impurity
· Phyllis Trible's methods of reading sacred texts
· Wendy Doniger's comparative mythology
· Catherine Bell's reimagining of religious and secular ritual

The second part focuses on methodological particularity:
· Alice Walker's use of narrative
· Charles Long's critique of Eurocentricism
· Caroline Walker Bynum's emphasis on gender and materiality

The third section focuses on expanding boundaries:
· Gloria Anzaldúa's work on borders and languages
· Judith Butler's critique of gender and sex norms
· Saba Mahmood's expansion on the critique of colonialism's secularizing demands

Reflecting the cultural turn and extending the existing canon, this is the anthology instructors have been waiting for.
