This article focuses on the essay "Covenantal Hermeneutics and the Redemption of Theory," which analyzes the effect of the "theory revolution," especially poststructuralism and postmodernism, upon contemporary Christian criticism. The author attempts to model the need to vanquish God's shadow, which rejects the false shadow god of ontotheology. According to a literary author many Christian scholars for whom the idea of rejecting classical Christian humanism is unthinkable and for whom the union of Athens and Jerusalem is the glory and, indeed, the destiny of Western civilization.
