This book explores the relationship between postmodernism and Christianity. Whereas deconstructionists claim all religious discourses can be radically undermined, Ingraffia argues that the version of Christianity constructed by Nietzsche, Heidegger and especially Derrida ignores Christianity's unique ontological status. This truth, Ingraffia claims, is an unacknowledged influence on leading postmodernist thinkers, thereby demonstrating the priority of the Judaeo-Christian tradition over secular attempts to displace it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a quite extraordinary book: polemical and powerfully original, but also straightforwardly written. I have not read any other book that combines in anything like the way Brian Ingraffia does the three distinct but overlapping fields of postmodern theory, biblical theology and modern metaphysics.' J. Hillis-Miller
"The strength of Ingraffia's argument lies in his clear and, on one level, sympathetic exposition of the different but related projects of these three thinkers....With lucid expositions of crucial turns of their arguments and judicious appeals to current scholarship on each figure, Ingraffia shows how Nietzsche and Heidegger derive important concepts by borrowing from christian theology on the one hand and by distorting essential features of that theology on the other....While it may not produce the knid of immediate epiphany experienced by Clarence Wilmot...in any of its readers in reverse, it should unsettle the more thoughful among them in their accustomed confession, ironically echoed by Kierkegaard from Descartes : de omnibus dubitandum est." Walter L. Reed, Philosophy and Literature
