 About the Book 

The postmodernist context of contemporary literary studies has seemed to push religious ideas to the margins. Nevertheless, religious concerns are deeply embedded in literature. This book provides an account of the literary and the religious. Drawing upon the work of David Tracy, Neary presents two ways of imagining the human relationship with the divine, the analogical and the dialogical imaginations.
