Examining the central content of both the Christian tradition and postmodern thought, Jan-Olav Henriksen explores how each deals with, interprets, and offers resources for living in today's world. Henriksen uses Jacques Derrida's categories of "desire," "gift," and "recognition" to interpret the Jesus story in terms of postmodern philosophy. He gives a clearly reasoned guide to why Christ and his message still have something to say to contemporary believers; and how theology must connect to everyday human experience.
A major work in the philosophy of religion, this book interprets the Jesus story in terms of postmodern philosophy - particularly using Jacques Derrida's categories of "desire," "gift," and "recognition." Author Jan-Olav Henriksen also attempts to reformulate Christology without resorting to such metaphysical concepts as substance, transcendence, etc. While not denying traditional doctrines, Henriksen explicates the meaning of Jesus' life and death in ways that engage contemporary philosophy and challenge contemporary (academic) Christians to rethink the basics of their faith; and he outlines the possibility of a "post-metaphysical Christology." / Henriksens book is a clearly reasoned guide not only to the argument that Christology still has something to say to contemporary believers but also to ways in which theologians must learn to reconnect to everyday human experience.
