In god in pain: inversions of apocalypse, pyrotechnic Marxist theorist Slavojiek and radical theologian Boris Gunjevic offer us not a religious text but a critical inquiry, a work of faith not in God but in the human intellect. With his contagious zeal and his genius for unlikely connections,iek calls the bluff on the Wests alleged atheism and contemplates the bewildering idea of an Almighty that both suffers and prays. Taking onieks gambits and proposing his own, Gunjevic issues a revolutionary clarion call for theology that can break the back of capitalisms cunning enslavement of desire. With gripping examples and razor-sharp logic,iek and Gunjevic invoke thinkers from Augustine to Lacan and topics ranging from Christian versus pagan ethics to the class struggle implied in reading the Quran and the role of gender in Islam. Together, they confirm and dissect faith in the twenty-first century, shaking the foundations of the Abrahamic traditions.
