The Oxford Handbook of English Literature and Theologyis a defining volume of essays in which leading international scholars apply an interdisciplinary approach to the long and evolving relationship between English Literature and Theology. The volume first offers a chronological account of key moments in the formation of the tradition; goes on to demonstrate literary ways of reading the Bible, theological ways of reading literature, and literary conceptions of theological texts; and finally explores the great themes that have preoccupied the Jewish and Christian traditions. Framing editorial essays describe the history, the cultural implications, and the methodological issues of this now popular interdisciplinary study, before speculating as to its possible futures in a postmodern, multicultural world.

The Oxford Handbook of English Literature and Theology is monumental... These essays are finely executed and valuable. (Wesley A. Kort, Journal of the American Academy of Religion)...a volume that is both particular and representative, one that successfully fulfils the double task of introducing the reader to current debates, and serving to consolidate the larger field. (Emma Mason literature and theology)

    This book is really very beatiful because it helps a lot the dialogue between two very important research fields: christian Theology and Literature. Everybody can discover a lot of relationships, common ground, influences between the two matters. It's an important interdisciplinars and common work. I think that it's the first example of a very scientific common work in this field with so many pages, writers, matters and things. Good reading!
