"Some of Europe's top philosophers of religion put forward great new ideas based on the works of Levinas, Derrida, Lacan, Kant and others, to explore divergent philosophical concepts around Christology, incarnation and the uniqueness of Christ, and therefore Christianity, in a very different way." - Publishing News, 2008

"The book lucidly fulfils its dual aims, articulating the prospects for an understanding of the Incarnation that does not divest or empty the doctrine of the Trinity whilst using the postmodern philosophers as grist on the question of the particularly Christian faith. In addition to the well-referenced, cogently-structured main project, Depoortere has furnished us with a set of beginning guides on some of the religious coordinates of three important, thought contested, social theorists." Theological Book Review, Vol. 21, No.2
