Sadly, Caputo's deconstructive pharmakon for the evangelical church goes down as more poison than cure, but in doing so, his book serves as a helpful reminder that if we allow God's Word to deconstruct us, dividing joint from marrow, and if we purposefully act as agents of divine deconstruction in one another's lives within the church, we should be led to a hospitality and love more life-giving than the "religion without religion" offered by Caputo and Derrida.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801031362, Paperback)

This provocative addition to The Church and Postmodern Culture series offers a lively rereading of Charles Sheldon's In His Steps as a constructive way forward. John D. Caputo introduces the notion of why the church needs deconstruction, positively defines deconstruction's role in renewal, deconstructs idols of the church, and imagines the future of the church in addressing the practical implications of this for the church's life through liturgy, worship, preaching, and teaching. Students of philosophy, theology, religion, and ministry, as well as others interested in engaging postmodernism and the emerging church phenomenon, will welcome this provocative, non-technical work.
