By Peter Rollins
"About 30 years in the past, I stumbled on the evocative word 'religionless Christianity' in Dietrich Bonhoeffer's later writings, and it has stayed with me ever considering. In his new e-book The constancy of Betrayal, Peter Rollins has teased out - as Bonhoeffer by no means had the opportunity to do - profound chances hidden within the word. As an immense fan of Peter's first publication, i locate his moment no much less considerate, stimulating, and from time to time unsettling - regularly in a so much (de)constructive approach. His subversive parables, his smart turns of word, and his beguiling readability all conspire to tempt the reader into that the majority fertile and terrifying of actions - to imagine to the very rim of one's realizing, after which to faithfully think the fact that lies a long way beyond."

What if one of many center calls for of a thorough Christianity lay in a decision for its betrayal, whereas the final word act of declaring God required the abandoning of God? And what if constancy to the Judeo-Christian Scriptures demanded their renunciation? in brief, what would it not suggest if the one manner of discovering actual religion concerned betraying it with a kiss?
Employing the insights of mysticism and deconstructive idea, The constancy of Betrayal delves into the subversive and innovative nature of a Christianity that dwells in the church whereas at the same time undermining it.
