Publisher's Description

The rediscovery of the apostle Paul by atheistic or agnostic European philosophers is one of the most striking recent developments in philosophy--and certainly one of keen interest to the church. These philosophers view Paul as having a revolutionary understanding of authority and politics.

Bringing together Radical Orthodox theologian John Milbank, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, and Creston Davis, who has been a student of both, this book reflects on Paul's new moment in secular philosophy. In a debate format, Žižek brings Marxist and post-Marxist ideas into a discussion with Milbank about the influence of Paul. The book also includes a contribution from Catherine Pickstock.
