Without Sovereignty, Without Being: Unconditionality, the Coming God and Derrida's Democracy to Come
John D. Caputo discusses Jacques Derrida's recent thought with many implications for a public theology.

One of the most widely read, currently active philosophers, Jacques Derrida, has been writing lately using key biblical words like justice, gift, forgiveness, friendship, and hospitality. He is beginning to sound like an eighth century prophet. Castigated by the right for being one of those terrible postmodernist philosophers advocating relativism, Derrida is much understood.

John D. Caputo has just written an essay in the Journal for Cultural and Religious Theory which summarizes Derrida's recent writings on the coming God and the democracy to come.

I consider this essay to be a key contribution to ideas about a public theology for our time. If you read the essay please take the time to share your thoughts.
