Description

Contemporary analysis known as "critical religion" points theory and method in productive, provocative directions.  Nevertheless, outdated habits linger in discourses about religion.  This essay supports recent deconstructive approaches by employing examples from both popular culture and scholarship to argue that more accurate, specific language ought be used whenever "religion" is cited.
