‘Paul’s New Moment: Continental Philosophy and the Future of Christian Theology’ by John Milbank, Slavoj Žižek & Creston Davis



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.
