Open peer commentary on the article “A Proposal for Personalised and Relational Qualitative Religious Studies Methodology” by Philip Baron. Abstract: Baron outlines the need and advantages of a second-order approach to religious studies. Values and mutual respect can be assumed in research but may be in short supply in social and political domains. This presents a challenge for educators and for society.
