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
