“Prayer and Politics”(van der Veer, ed.)

In February, Routledge will release Prayer and Politics edited by Peter van der Veer (Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen and Distinguished University Professor at Utrecht University). The publisher’s description follows:

prayer-and-politicsPrayer and politics: unlikely, but intimate bedfellows. This publication explores everything from the Pentecostal religious battle – where prayer is both sword and shield against the Satanic Other – to the exchange between Islam and Christianity, demonstrating the relationship between prayer and politics in a wide spectrum of religious traditions, from all across the globe. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Religious and Political Practice.
