schema:reviewBody""One of the most deplorable aspects of our postmodern era is the reemergence of the 'sacred' in all its different guises, from New Age spiritualisms to the emerging religious sensitivity within deconstructionism itself. How is a Marxist to counter this massive onslaught of obscurantism? The wager of The Fragile Absolute is that Christianity and Marxism should fight together against the barrage of new spiritualisms: the subversive core of the Christian legacy is much too precious to be left to the fundamentalists. Here is a fitting contribution from a Marxist to the 2000th anniversary of one who was well aware that to practise love in our world is to bring in the sword and fire."--BOOK JACKET."
