Why should any one want to buy/read this particular publication 'It is very good news that Blackwells are relaunching RRT under Dr Isabel Wollaston's editorship. In its last five years RRT has given rapid intelligent responses to a very large number of new books and it has constantly shown how vibrant and varied the field is. It has become a journal of first resort for learning what is currently being published. It now promises in the hands of one of the leading publishers of journals to build on its last five years and take its place along side longer established journals as essential reading in order to keep up with both literature and comment in theology and religious studies.' Professor David Ford University of Cambridge UK 'I am very happy to commend RRT to all those who are interested in contemporary theology. It provides introduction to trends in theology and religious studies by its accessible and constructive reviews of the latest publications.' Professor Chris Rowland University of Oxford UK 'RRT offers an accessible point of entry into the lively world of contemporary British theology and religious studies. At the same time the journal is broadly international and ecumenical combining book reviews and commentary from a wide variety of authors. Americans will find RRT a refreshing change of pace from the atmosphere of AAR/SBL.' Garrett Green Connecticut College New London Connecticut USA.
