Description

';A tour de force... provocative ideas expressed in Heideggerian, Derridean, and Deleuzian rhetoric... for a new wave of Christian theologians' (Bibliographia).

The Insistence of God presents the provocative idea that God does not existGod insists. God's existence is a human responsibility, which may or may not happen. For John D.Caputo, God's existence is haunted by ';perhaps,' which does not signify indecisiveness but an openness to risk, to the unforeseeable. Perhaps constitutes a theology of what is to come and what we cannot see coming. Responding to current critics of continental philosophy, Caputo explores the materiality of perhaps and the promise of the world. He shows how perhaps can become a new theology of the gaps God opens.

';John D.Caputo is at the top of his game, and he is not content to reiterate what he has already expressed, but continues to develop his own ideas further by way of a thorough engagement with the fields of theology, Continental philosophy, and religious thought.' Clayton Crockett, University of Central Arkansas

';For those allergic to theological certaintywhether of God's existence or of God's deathCaputo delivers storm-fresh relief: the theopoetics of God's insistence.' Catherine Keller, Drew University

';In my life I have read no more stimulating book of theology. Buckle your seatbelt!' Dialog

';An excellent text that opens the way into new forms of theological thinking. He puts forward an argument that must be wrestled with and brings to light new avenues for both religious and theological thought. Caputo is not for the faint of heart.' Reviews in Religion and Theology
