Lyotard and Theology (Philosophy and Theology) by Lieven Boeve

By Lieven Boeve

Lieven Boeve contextualises Lyotard's writings and technique on the subject of his theological suggestion. via targeting matters equivalent to the character of the differend inside language, the elegant adventure and our (in)ability to witness to the breakdowns of language and illustration, Lyotard's suggestion provokes theology to reassess its personal foundations. taking over matters corresponding to a hugely appropriate critique of capitalism, itself important to modern-day knowing of Christian praxis in a world international, Lyotard deals us a point of view in which to re-examine Christianity past its being a hegemonic discourse because it strikes towards being a discourse fascinated with love. via exploring the Christian narrative as an 'open' one, Boeve goals to use new chances for theology via a renewed comprehension of Lyotard's importance for today.
