What if one of the core elements of a radical Christianity lay in a demand that we betray it, while the ultimate act of affirming God required the forsaking of God? And what if fidelity to the Judeo-Christian scriptures demanded their renunciation? In short, what if the only way of finding real faith involved betraying that faith with a kiss, like Judas did to Christ? Employing the insights of apophatic theology, Soren Kierkegaard, and deconstructive theory, The Fidelity of Betrayal seeks to explore the subversive and clandestine nature of a Christianity that dwells within religious institutions while simultaneously undermining them.

"What if one of the core demands of a radical Christianity lay in call for its betrayal, while the ultimate act of affirming God required the forsaking of God? Employing the insights of mysticism and deconstructive theory, this book delves into the subversive and revolutionary nature of a Christianity that dwells within the church while simultaneously undermining it."--BOOK JACKET.
