About ISR Books

ISR Books is the imprint of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University. Our mission is to publish exceptional research and serious reflections on religion by our scholars, spanning the intellectual spectrum: history, sociology, economics, anthropology, political science, psychology, epidemiology, theology, and religious studies. Our mandate extends to all religions, everywhere, and throughout history. While always striving for appropriate scientific objectivity, our scholars treat religion with the respect that sacred matters require and deserve.
