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 that we forsake 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? The author of last year's much-talked-about debut, How (Not) to Speak of God, is at it again. 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.
