Theology, Fantasy, and the Imagination

Theology, Fantasy, and the Imagination

By Andrew D. Thrasher



Theology, Fantasy, and the Imagination is an edited collection at the intersection of theology, religion, and philosophy and fantasy literature and table-top games. The volume begins with an invocation of the "old magic" of pre-modern theology and follows with analyses of classical Christian fantasy. The second section articulates a "post-Christian" turn in fantasy since the late twentieth century, arguing how fantasy can serve to re-enchant the imagination in ways that moves beyond traditional Christianity. The last section on fantasy at play explores how religion is at play in Dungeons and Dragons and in Magic: the Gathering.
