“Insightful, critical, and wide-ranging, this is the book we have been waiting for on Girard and world religions. But beyond mining the mimetic theory and comparing religious traditions in its light, these essays also illuminate philosophy, theology, and the secular. From limpid pools, via steep ascents, to commanding vistas, this collection points the way to rational, faithful, converting religious dialogue.”
—Scott Cowdell, Research Professor, Public and Contextual Theology, Charles Sturt University, Canberra, Australia, and author of René Girard and Secular Modernity
