Philosophy and the Study of Religions: A Manifesto advocates a radical transformation of the discipline from its current, narrow focus on questions of God, to a fully global form of critical reflection on religions in all their variety and dimensions.
Opens the discipline of philosophy of religion to the religious diversity that characterizes the world today
Builds bridges between philosophy of religion and the other interpretative and explanatory approaches in the field of religious studies
Provides a manifesto for a global approach to the subject that is a practice-centred rather than a belief-centred activity
Gives attention to reflexive critical studies of 'religion' as socially constructed and historically located
