These philosophers view Paul as having a revolutionary understanding of authority and politics.Bringing together Radical Orthodox theologian John Milbank, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zižek, and Creston Davis, who has been a student of both, this book reflects on Pauls new moment in secular philosophy. In a debate format, Zižek 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.
