Yes, good people, our book is now out. You can preorder it at Amazon right here.

From the Back Cover:

The Elder Scrolls series has entranced gamers for two decades with its deep mythology, complex history, and intriguing locations. Players have explored a world in The Elder Scrolls rich with kings, demons, heroes, magic, and gods. Past the Sky’s Rim: The Elder Scrolls and Theology engages with the world from the perspective of academic theology and religious studies. Within these pages, scholars ask what it means to become a god, to die alone in the solitude of Vvardenfell, and to live in a world with different afterlives for different people. Attempting to move beyond a shallow engagement,Past the Sky’s Rim considers Video Games as serious media capable of transmitting important ideas to those who engage with them and invites readers to think more deeply about what games can say about ultimate realities.

 

Past the Sky’s Rim: The Elder Scrolls and Theology is edited by Joshua Wise, and contains essays from Matthew Franks, Joshua Gonnerman, Mark Hayse, Jacob W. Torbeck, and Michael Zeigler.
