Summary:
"The pre-existent, transcendent Logos, the principal character in the prologue of John's gospel, is a prime example of a unified and centred concept, such as denounced as illusory by deconstruction. In this study, Nutu offers a postmodern scrutiny of the Logos as the incarnate word that becomes visible as it is inscribed in human flesh.

Abstract:

"The pre-existent, transcendent Logos, the principal character in the prologue of John's gospel, is a prime example of a unified and centred concept, such as denounced as illusory by deconstruction. In this study, Nutu offers a postmodern scrutiny of the Logos as the incarnate word that becomes visible as it is inscribed in human flesh. Within view also is the reverse process, of becoming 'children of God', which signifies human beings willingly accepting God's word, his tattoo, upon their flesh in order to pertain to the realm of the Logos." "A second strand of this book is Nutu's tracing the fragmented afterlives of John's prologue and their different effects on the formation of subjects (with a particular focus on homo religiosus and feminine 'I's) through postmodern film. At the dawn of a new millennium, films continue to play an important role in the cultural development of society; even moving away from the self-confessed biblical films, new productions like The Pillow Book, The Fifth Element, and The Matrix (all engaged here) mediate elements of biblical narrative, theology, allegory, ethics and identity."--BOOK JACKET.
