This profound book meets the challenge squarely, offering a surer foundation for the idea of being and a new theological perspective of supreme relevance to todays world. In a brilliant turn of postmodern thought itself, Oliver Davies argues for a renewal of metaphysics based on a dynamic new understanding of ontology as narrative and performance.

His repairing of the Western metaphysical tradition is grounded both in the divine self-naming in Exodus -- which, for the rabbis, identified Gods presence in the world with Gods compassionate acts -- and in the compassionate resistance of Etty Hillesum and Edith Stein to the violence of the Holocaust. Building on a new metaphysics of compassion that is attentive to the deepest histories of the contemporary world, Davies offers a renewed systematic theology focused on divine speech and Gods compassionate relation to human culture.
