Catherine Keller's book is bold and momentous.

Like other recently published books in this our asthmatic post-9/11 climate

(John Caputo's The Weakness of God and Peter Rollins's How (Not) To Speak of God, to name just two),

Ms Keller likewise offers us a breath-of-fresh-air theology

that is stunningly lucid and as faithful as it is daring (or, as she might say, daring because faithful!).

She not only dexterously deconstructs the prevailing Apocalyptic madness

and its obsessions with hideous endings and imperialistic lusts,

she also delivers a hopeful and lucid vision that can help ignite the global exodus out of empire

and unto terrains that are altogether gracious, generous, and best of all, hospitable to all the living.

The final chapter alone (Democracy of Creation: Chaosmos and Counter Apocalypse) makes this book a must-read. Every poetic-prose line there is packed with awe-inducing thoughts and energizing visions.

Here's a sample:

"...[C]ertainty has permitted the new messianic imperialism.

But given the manifest failure of its projects, we need not despair.

Its certainty proves certainly wrong. Its promises of stability and order are exposed as reckless boasts.

And many who have been blinded by the light of a false certainty learn to see in the dark.

The space opens wider, then, for Wisdom, in whom we learn the humbling old knowledge of our own ignorance.

"This unknowing throws us back upon faith, not as an absolute kind of knowledge,

but as a trustful courage that we require precisely because we cannot have certainty.

Because we are always beginning again.

I enjoyed reading this work as it explores apocalyptic rhetoric and colonialism. Worth reading. Keller is always a provocative theologian.
