Dr. Bryan Rennie, Westminster College Vira I. Heinz professor of religion, had a review of The Study of Religion in a New Key: Theoretical and Philosophical Soundings in the Comparative and General Study of Religion by Jeppe Sinding Jensen published in the journal Religion, vol. 38, #3.
"This is a very significant review for me since Professor Jensen's work is an important re-evaluation of the phenomenology of religion as I have been teaching it for 16 years at Westminster," Rennie said.
"The attempt to restore an intellectually sound and philosophically justified phenomenology of religion seeks to give a firm and fully considered basis to what some scholars are doing already," said Rennie, who counts himself among those scholars. "I am delighted to see this review in print in a significant international peer-reviewed Journal and await the responses of its critics."
The review is available online at www.westminster.edu/staff/brennie/vitaebsr.htm#publications.
Rennie, who has been with Westminster since 1992, earned an undergraduate degree, master's and Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
