This review is from: Zizek and Theology (Philosophy and Theology) (Paperback)
Kotsko takes the reader on a tour of Zizek's thought from his first work published in English up through The Parallax View, showing the progression of his thought towards a theological expression of his project. In the closing he briefly brings Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Thomas J. Alitzer into his exposition to give examples of contemporary theological expressions that provide a clearer path into theological inquiry and discussion.
This is a very accessible book, even for someone like me without any formal credentials in the humanities. I am no scholar but a curious onlooker trying to figure out and deal with some of Zizek's theological ideas; I like to read theory to escape the dreariness of studying physics and to broaden my mind. The point is, especially to any that wandered over here from Peter Rollins' blog, that this book is a challenging but very clear way in to Zizek's work.
I will definitely read this book again.
