Recent Comments "Barth, Derrida, And The Language Of Theology"

A very clear exposition of what is at stake at the boundaries of theology and philosophy in Barth and Derrida. There is also much more in this book than the title indicates, as there are chapters about Buber, Heidegger, and Levinas as well, not to mention the constant theme of the question of analogy in many of these thinkers.
