Recent severe thought is apparently preoccupied with the metaphors and concepts of early Christianity, specifically the faith of Paul. The haunting of secular idea through the very faith it seeks to beat could seem striking at the start, yet Ward Blanton argues that this contemporary go back via theorists to the assets of early Christianity has precedent in smooth and ostensibly secularizing philosophy, from Kant to Heidegger.

Displacing Christian Origins strains the present severe engagement of Agamben, Derrida, and Žižek, between others, again into 19th- and early-twentieth-century philosophers of early Christianity. via evaluating those the most important moments within the glossy background of philosophy with exemplars of recent biblical scholarship—David Friedrich Strauss, Adolf Deissmann, and Albert Schweitzer—Blanton bargains a brand new method for severe concept to construe the connection among the fashionable earlier and the biblical traditions to which we appear to be drawn as soon as again.

An leading edge contribution to the highbrow heritage of biblical exegesis, Displacing Christian Origins will advertise proficient and fruitful debate among faith and philosophy.
