"[A] movingly optimistic work ... 'Everything to be true must become a religion, ' Wilde says, and Critchley, poetically and persuasively, suggests ways in which this might be accomplished."--Stuart Kelly, The Guardian "A a sustained and fascinating reflection on the place of religion in political discourse."--Giles Fraser, New Statesman "A thoughtful, illuminating exploration ... erudite and measured."--Publisher's Weekly "This version of a faithless faith that Simon is fleshing out in this book is a radical break in his own thinking ... in this new book Simon's insights arrive in their most brilliant splendor: Unlike Derrida's version of truth (and its political important) that keeps deferring and is always different, here the breakthrough happens precisely when we are able to confront our own toxic void and in the suffering of this confrontation we are able to connect with the immanent other in an act of love in the horizon of a broken embracement. Like Christ's brokenness on the cross he opens up a way through suffering that does not cancel out the void and lack that grounds us, but unites us in the very brokenness itself."--Creston Davis, Political Theology "[T]he book amply demonstrates Critchley's many strengths as a thinker and teacher. Where the book is exegetical, it is strikingly clear ... Even better, the book displays Critchley's skill as one of the very best close readers of philosophical texts we have ... this fascinating and important book traces, as it were, a trajectory of his thought and is not an end in itself."--Robert Eaglestone, Times Higher Education "The Faith of the Faithless provides a powerful vision of what our politics ought to look like."--David Winters, Los Angeles Review of Books
