By Ward Blanton

Recent severe concept is interestingly preoccupied with the metaphors and concepts of early Christianity, specifically the faith of Paul. The haunting of secular notion by means of the very faith it seeks to beat could seem staggering at the start, yet Ward Blanton argues that this fresh go back by way of theorists to the assets of early Christianity has precedent in sleek and ostensibly secularizing philosophy, from Kant to Heidegger.

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

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