Example text

So Christianity continues to occupy languages and bodies, to instruct aspirations and habits, long after its churches are disestablished and its theologies ridiculed. Our perception of the exile of Christianity depends upon a confusion about disestablishment but also about sex. If anything was supposed to prove our freedom from dead churches and their ridiculous theologies, it was our orgasmic enlightenment, our sexual revolution.

The “sacrificial” ordeal of our feminist hero Isaac nonetheless remains on offer; its transformations are undeniably costly, but they are the price of freedom in the richest sense. And oddly, this lesson can at the end even be turned back on Abraham: his ordeal too, though not one of powerlessness, is equally one of purgation and transformation—the giving up of a falsely idolatrous desire in aid of proper detachment, proper submission to God. “Theonomy,” in short, is not a given but a lifetime’s undertaking—an ascetical task in response to primary divine gift.
