[On Nov. 5-7, Dr. Caputo will also be participating across town in Drury University’s School of Religion conference series, Subverting the Norm III: Political Perspectives on Postmodern Theology and Church Practice, which features several more of the most prominent theologians in the United States and beyond.]
“By helping us reimagine the very way we conceive of religion, John D. Caputo writes for those of us who live our lives somewhere between belief and doubt yet feel overcome by an unconditional call of love and wonder that will not let us go.”
– Phil Snider, Senior Minister of Brentwood Christian Church and author of Preaching After God: Derrida, Caputo, and the Language of Postmodern Homiletics
