""Erring "is a thoughtful, often brilliant attempt to describe and enact what remains of (and for) theology in the wake of deconstruction. Drawing on Hegel, Nietzsche, Derrida, and others, Mark Taylor extends--and goes well beyond--pioneering efforts. . . . The result is a major book, comprehensive and well-informed."--G. Douglas Atkins, "Philosophy and Literature"
"Many have felt the need for a study which would explicate in coherent and accessible fashion the principal tenets of deconstruction, with particular attention to their theological implications. This need the author has addressed in a most impressive manner. The book's effect upon contemporary discussion is apt to be, and deserves to be, far-reaching."--Walter Lowe, "Journal of Religion"
