I almost forgot to mention that recently I did work through Kim Fabricius’s Ten Propositions on Political Theology. He finally made some real use of the Bonhoeffer reading he’d claimed earlier. After poring over each proposition carefully and then reading the extensive comments, I must say I’m starting to see a pattern in Kim’s “proposition” practices. He loves using “sound bite” quotes, very often ascribing a name to a whole system of thought without any references! Political theology is particularly thorny and needs a thorough unpacking. To me, this whole entry (with comments) reveals how little help abstract conversation can be, when devoid of real life evidence.
