Feminist theory and reflections on sexuality and gender rarely make contact with contemporary continental philosophy of religion. Where they all come together, creative and transformative thinking occurs. In Feminism, Sexuality, and the Return of Religion, internationally recognized scholars tackle complicated questions provoked by the often stormy intersection of these powerful forces. The essays in this book break down barriers as they extend the richness of each philosophical tradition. They discuss topics such as queer sexuality and religion, feminism and the gift, feminism and religious reform, and religion and diversity. The contributors are Helene Cixous, Sarah Coakley, Kelly Brown Douglas, Mark D. Jordan, Catherine Keller, Saba Mahmood, and Gianni Vattimo.

This is certainly a welcome addition to the library of philosophers of religion, as well as feminist and gender theorists and students.* Hypatia *
[This] volume is an ambitious amalgamation of perspectives. Its multiplicity is its strength, tying the entries together through symbolic and ideological similarity. Feminism, Sexuality and the Return of Religion rejects the urge to catalogue or homogenise, embracing a structure more reflective of the heterogeneity that suffuses its subject matter.* Religion and Gender *
This remarkable work assembles the papers given at the eponymous 2007 Syracuse University conference in the series on Postmodernism, Culture, and Religion. . . . The reader gets a palpable sense of the excitement and collaboration that animated the conference . . . The theorists go to the heart of some of the most exciting problems and possibilities that emerge when religion, gender, and sexuality interrogate one another, using the tools of anthropology, theology, postcolonial studies, and more. In doing so, they testify to the ongoing vibrancy of feminist inquiry in religious studies.* Religious Studies Review *
[A] worthwhile, eclectic collection. . . . Recommended.* Choice *
