Looking for Good Books

To be eligible for the 2021 award, books must be nominated by a SSSR member (yes, self-nominations are welcome) and have an imprint copyright publication date of 2019 or 2020. The committee will judge each book’s quality of scholarship, importance to the field, and relevance to the larger society. Any book involving some aspect of the scientific study of religion is eligible.
