Abstract:

Rene Girard, author of groundbreaking books such as Violence and the Sacred and Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World, has long been an intellectual cause celebre in Europe.

The Girard Reader brings that work to a larger audience. It includes major excerpts from.

Girard's books and articles which cover all aspects of his theories on violence, religion, and culture. These views cut across theology, biblical studies, anthropology, psychology, and literature. The book concludes with a conversation with Rene Girard and editor James G. Williams that brings new focus to his Christian vision and breathtaking oeuvre.
