Product Description

The Devil Reads Derrida is a compilation of essays and articles written for the lay audience by a notable and bright, young voice within the church and Christian academia. James K.A. Smith, a specialist in French philosophy and postmodernism, offers some of his most intriguing forays into the public arena, focusing especially on discipleship, the university, and politics and the church. He also provides a selection of his criticism, including popular culture essays on Harry Potter, Cronenberg's A History of Violence and the poetry of Franz Wright.
Smith's intellect brings a sharp theological wit and wisdom to the practice of Christian discipleship. Whether grappling with the "Wild at Heart" phenomenon, the challenges of secularization, or commenting on films like American Beauty, Smith tackles each issue with clarity, insight and scholarly rigor, yet in each instance always keeping a keen eye on practice of Christian discipleship and the life of the church.
