   schema:description "The first book to present Girard's work to a wider audience, showing its impact on theology and other disciplines. The work of Ren Girard is hugely influential in literature and cultural studies. But it is in understanding the relationship between religion and violence that his theories have created the greatest impact. Girard's understanding of mimetic rivalry and conflict and of scapegoating are seen by many to be keys to a completely new understanding of Christianity. Girard's name evokes curiosity and [often [strong feelings amongst devotees and sceptics. Discovering Girard is the first book to present Girard's work to a wider audience in a lively way that not only unpacks and appraises his work and shows its impact on theology and other disciplines but conveys the sense of excitement that a discovery of Girard's ideas often generates in readers."@en ;
