The way which society conceives of power in the twenty-first century determines how it approaches future issues. Placing the twentieth-century French philosopher Michel Foucault into critical conjunction with the apostle Paul, Fuggle re-evaluates the way in which power operates within society and underpins ethical and political actions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Perhaps it will be a focus on power, in the end, which will burn through cliched distinctions between the secular and the religious, even as it also opens new modes of enacting political solidarity. Sophie Fuggle leads the way to a new critical theory in keeping with a new politics, and she does so by rewiring the figure of Paul for a brilliant comparative reflection on Foucault's technologies of the self. Short-circuiting our usual assumptions about the difference between the ancient and contemporary figures in question, neither Paul nor Foucault nor their interpreters will be able to remain the same." - Ward Blanton, Reader in Biblical Cultures and European Thought, Department of Religious Studies, School of European Culture and Languages, University of Kent, UK
