Cusack, Carole M. and Farley, Helen, eds. (2016) Introduction to Volume 3: Religion, the occult, and the paranormal (4 volumes). Critical Concepts in Religious Studies, 4 volumes. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), United Kingdom. ISBN 1138015091

Abstract

The field encompassed by 'Religion, the Occult, and the Paranormal' is both fascinating and frustrating. The fascination stems from the contested nature of the content, and the multi-disciplinary nature of the existing scholarly literature. The frustration stems chiefly from the misunderstood and much-maligned nature of the content, and the way in which specific elements are taken out of context, or treated in a frivolous manner as is often the case with tabloid journalism. This new collection from Routledge addresses these and other urgent questions by bringing together the best foundational and cutting-edge scholarship on religion, the occult, and the paranormal.
