Badiou, Done

I've finished my work on Badiou, for now. It was quite interesting to take his philosophy and plug it back into the ecclesiological context, even though he and most Badiou scholars would not care a whit for it. In brief, however, as soon as we take Paul's claim seriously (and Badiou doesn't) then we find a lot of common ground with Bonhoeffer, and are confronted with a model of God that is entirely New (I use this word deliberately, in the context of Badiou's work) and still very Christian.

The conclusion of the last essay found its way to here as a blog post, so I may yet do the same with this one when the peer review comes back. It'll be a long post, though.
