:Christian thinkers and writers who address Jacques Derrida's philosophy face two potential pitfalls. One is to recast Christianity in an ill-fitting Derridean mold; the other is to ascribe to Derrida objectionable positions that bear little relation to his writing.To avoid these hazards, Christopher Watkin, a scholar of French literature and philosophy, walks in Derrida's shoes through the landscape of recent thought and culture, seeking to understand the rationale for Derrida's philosophical moves in light of his assumptions and commitments in philosophy, literature, ethics, and politics. He then sets these assumptions in the wider context of God's nature and purposes in history, providing biblical critique.Learn why Derrida says what he does and how Christians can receive and respond to his writing in a balanced, biblical way that is truly beneficial.
