This article highlights aspects of the new situation in which thinking and theorising about religion is being done. This new situation is characterised by an increasing global awareness, increasing awareness of religious pluralism in the interfaith encounter, the importation of critical gender categories into the study of religion on a theoretical and metatheoretical level and an awareness of the increasing complexity of our world and of the phenomenon religion. The challenges brought to bear on the study of religion by these aspects of the new situation, as well as the effects they have on the way we study the phenomenon religion, are discussed.
