The Logic of Incarnation
James K. A. Smith's Critique of Postmodern Religion
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This volume brilliantly highlights the importance of Smith's logic of incarnation. It amplifies a new and indispensable voice in the postmodern debate."
author of The God Who May Be and Strangers, Gods and Monsters
"The Logic of Incarnation offers the reader a helpful overview and critical discussion of James K. A. Smith's engagement with postmodern thought based on Christianity's central mystery: God's becoming human. In critically engaging Deconstruction, the emergent church, and the role of tradition, The Logic of Incarnation introduces the reader to central themes of current thinking on religion that have especially dominated North American discussions, but it also points, particularly in Smith's concluding response to his critics, toward recovering an ancient incarnational thinking whose radical quality--reaching far beyond modernity and postmodernity--lies precisely in recovering the ecclesial and eschatological nature of Christianity."
author of Recovering Theological Hermeneutics: An Incarnational-Trinitarian Theory of Interpretation
"It is as testament to James K. A. Smith's career that, even at a relatively young age (academically speaking), his work merits an interaction as robust as this book. The Logic of Incarnation will not only introduce many to Smith's important writings, but it will also spur on conversation about these very significant ideas where, indeed, theology, philosophy, and church meet."
