9780253010070: The Insistence of God: A Theology of Perhaps (Indiana Series in the Philosophy of Religion)

The Insistence of God presents the provocative idea that God does not exist, God insists, while God’s existence is a human responsibility, which may or may not happen. For John D. Caputo, God’s existence is haunted by "perhaps," which does not signify indecisiveness but an openness to risk, to the unforeseeable. Perhaps constitutes a theology of what is to come and what we cannot see coming. Responding to current critics of continental philosophy, Caputo explores the materiality of perhaps and the promise of the world. He shows how perhaps can become a new theology of the gaps God opens.

About the Author:

John D. Caputo is Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion Emeritus at Syracuse University and the David R. Cook Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at Villanova University. He is author of The Weakness of God (IUP, 2006), which won the American Academy of Religion's Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion in the Constructive-Reflective Studies category.

Review:

John D. Caputo is at the top of his game, and he is not content to reiterate what he has already expressed, but continues to develop his own ideas further by way of a thorough engagement with the fields of theology, Continental philosophy, and religious thought. (Clayton Crockett University of Central Arkansas)

Challenging, combative, witty, and incisive, this is Caputo at his best. The Insistence of God is a cry in the postmodern desert for a fuller life to come, not elsewhere, but here among the least of these. It makes bold the mission of radical theology to haunt and disrupt the slumber of confessional theology. It awakens troubling thoughts and solicits deep responses. This is a work of audacity and insight, but above all―though the word is discreetly traced―of love. (Richard Kearney Boston College)

John Caputo has done it again with his latest work of radical theology. He has put the cat among the theological pigeons and flustered the philosophical dovecotes in no uncertain terms―a real tour de force or perhaps a tour de faiblesse, choc-a-bloc with unorthodoxy but with a very serious point. It is difficult to know which to admire more his great erudition or his remarkable courage. (Patrick Masterson University College, Dublin)

For those allergic to theological certainty―whether of God’s existence or of God’s death―Caputo delivers storm-fresh relief: the theopoetics of God’s insistence. (Catherine Keller Drew University)
