Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a highly unusual book. To identify its genre would already be to misread it....[Magliola] deserves the full attention of those interested in doctrinal issues and in interreligious conversation."—Edith Wyschogrod, Rice University

"...a fascinating glimpse of a postmodern journey...a timely and concrete account of the religious resources of deconstruction, and of Derrida, Asian spirituality, and Trinitarian theology."—John D. Caputo, Villanova University

"Magliola's On Deconstructing Life-Worlds shows that he has not only studied recipes of Chinese culture but wholeheartedly tasted and assimilated them."—Mei-shu Hwang, Tamkang University

N. Robert Glass
[The volume illustrates] the diverse understanding of postmodernism in the field of religion, and how easily the term can be applied to a wide range of thinkers, concepts and practices.
Journal of Buddhist Ethics
