    Very interesting, definitely "heady" and critical as opposed to practical

    Dr. Carl Raschke has a very uniue and well grounded perspective, using and taking neo-Marxist and Critical Theory based philosophy to critique the quasi-liberational , supposed "cultural marxist" superstructure inside late modern global capitalism.

    He also has a unique ability , even a gift to describe and point to the power of the gospel from a purely academic, non-confessional argumentative stance built from Continental philosophy and pscyhoanalysis.

    There are some nuggets of wisdom in this book around defining political theology, and a Christian way of not over assigning theories of objectivity while also not necessarily rejecting all metanarratives.

    The book is definitely more focused on critical , academic analysis than prescribing practical steps for individuals, and gets pretty dense at times especially around chapter 4 describing Badiou and symbolic interpretations of the cross.

    Still an interesting read, especially for those interested in political theology and social/cultural perspectives.
