This loose collection of academic essays on the subject of religious anarchism would likely appeal more to those already familiar with field, as the papers tend to be fairly narrow in their focus. Yet if your familiarity with the topic is limited to, say, Christian anarchism along the lines of Tolstoy or Ellul, then the essays in Part III on Buddhist, Daoist, and Muslim anarchism should bear some interest. Standouts include Fitch's chapter on Peagianism's anarchistic leanings, Christoyannopoulos's survey of Christian anarchist reinterpretations of certain "statist" readings of the New Testament, and Fiscella's survey of Islamic anarchist literature.
