Sacrifice, Scripture and Substitution; University of Notre Dame Press

The University of Notre Dame Press has published a new collection of scholarly essays titled Sacrifice, Scripture and Substitution: Readings in Ancient Judaism and Christianity, edited by Ann W. Astell, professor of theology, and Sandor Goodhart, associate professor of English and Jewish studies at Purdue University.

The essays focus on sacrifice in the context of Jewish and Christian scripture and are inspired by the thought and writings of René Girard. The book opens with a conversation in which René Girard and Sandor Goodhart explore the relation between imitation and violence throughout human history, especially in religious culture.
