One of the foremost scholars exploring the intersection of theology and continental philosophy, Charles E. Winquist argues for the possibility of theological thinking in a postmodern secular milieu. Moving beyond the now familiar reiteration of postmodernity's losses-the death of God, the displacement of the self, the end of history, the closure of the Book-Winquist equates a desire to think theologically with a point. To desire theology in this sense is to desire to know an 'other' in and of language that can be valued in the forming of personal and communal identity. In this book, 'desiring theology' carries another sense as well, for Winquist argues that, in the wake of psychoanalysis, theology must elaborate the meaning and importance of desire in its own discourse.
