Summary
The central thesis of this book is that theology in the wake of Lacanian psychoanalysis is devoid of the ""the big Other"", i.e., a guarantee that a system of belief is forever secured by a master-signifier around which all meaning takes its place. Indeed, this book reverses this thesis: Only after Lacan can theology mean anything at all. It is precisely by rejecting the idol of God's necessity (deus ex machina) that theology can only make sense in and through the wild untamable flux and fury of an uncontrollable contingency
