Paul's Summons to Messianic Life : Political Theology and the Coming Awakening, Paperback / softback Book

Paul's Summons to Messianic Life : Political Theology and the Coming Awakening Paperback / softback

Part of the Insurrections: Critical Studies in Religion, Politics, and Culture series

Description

Taubes, Badiou, Agamben, Zizek, Reinhard, and Santner have found in the Apostle Paul's emphasis on neighbor-love a positive paradigm for politics.

By thoroughly reexamining Pauline eschatology, L. L. Welborn suggests that neighbor-love depends upon an orientation toward the messianic event, which Paul describes as the "now time" and which he imagines as "awakening." Welborn compares the Pauline dialectic of awakening to attempts by Hellenistic philosophers to rouse their contemporaries from moral lethargy and to the Marxist idea of class consciousness, emphasizing the apostle's radical spirit and moral relevance.
