"Convulsing Bodies should serve as a deft and insightful introduction to the thinker's corpus (pun intended) for graduate students and senior scholars alike." -- Megan Goodwin * <i>Religious Studies Review</i> * "Jordan offers a bold book that warns readers away from common mistakes fans and detractors make in reading Foucault . . . Jordan's careful readings and insightful analyses cover a number of the philosopher's most famous works and several series of public lectures at the College de France . . .Jordan is especially adept at noting writers who had a formative influence on Foucault's thought and at noting nuances of the French language often missed, or misunderstood, by English readers. It is a mark of Jordan's success that readers with a background in Foucault will find themselves thinking differently about thinking differently." -- S. Young * <i>Choice</i> * "This will be the best introduction to Foucault and religion that will have been written. It treats Foucault's texts with a sympathetic seriousness that few other religious/theological treatments are able to accomplish. We get to hear about the sacred as if from inside Foucault's own concerns." -- Tom Beaudoin * Fordham University * "This book is full of insights and it does something that few commentaries on Foucault do: take him seriously as a writer, take him seriously as an examiner of religious forms, take him seriously as occasionally humorous." -- James Bernauer * Boston College *
