Religious Resistance to Neoliberalism offers compelling and intersectional religious critiques of neoliberalism. Neoliberalism is the normative rationality of contemporary global capitalism that orders people to live by the generalized principle of competition in all social spheres of life. Keri Day asserts that neoliberalism and its moral orientations consequently breed radical distrust, lovelessness, disconnection, and alienation within society. She argues that engaging black feminist and womanist religious perspectives with Jewish and Christian discourses offers more robust critiques of a neoliberal economy. Employing womanist and black feminist religious perspectives, this book provides six theoretical, theologically constructive arguments to challenge the moral fragmentation associated with global markets. It strives to envision a pragmatic politics of hope.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In Religious Resistance to Neoliberalism, Keri Day seeks to describe our world with this economic execration, and proposes that religious responses offer a potential for the restoration of human flourishing in a society increasingly concerned only with the bottom line. ... This book is essential reading for, among others, those interested in feminist theology and in critical investigations of capitalism. It is deeply informed by the black feminist tradition." (Kevin Hargaden, Studies in Christian Ethics, Vol. 31 (03), 2018)
