Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Criticism of Religion: On Marxism and Theology, II contains the table of contents, preface and an introduction of the book. The book is both a commentary and an engagement. It is a critical commentary on what some leading Marxist critics have written about religion, especially Christianity in some form or other. It is also an engagement with their work, showing where it falls short, but, above all, seeking out what might be drawn from their work for the continuation and reassessment of the Marxist project itself. This book falls rather naturally into three groups: dialectics; biblical engagements; and the passing moment of religion. To begin with, Lucien Goldmann and Fredric Jameson occupy the opening chapters on dialectics.

Keywords: biblical engagements; Christianity; dialectics; Marxist critics
