Chapter Summary

This paper connects ideas of geo-ethics with the emergence of radical faith-based praxis in the context of the postsecular city. The author suggests that the latest manifestations of secularism in neoliberal forms of governance have paradoxically created new spaces for postsecular praxis, sometimes offering paths of resistance that inject new forms of care, justice and hope into the the turgid landscapes of individualism, consumerism and globalization. Drawing of the theo-ethics of otherness, grace, love and hope, that bring with them an excess beyond material logic and rationale, he illustrates the wider theme through the lens of Christian adaptations to and for the postsecular. In particular, he examines both the importance of radical orthodox theology in responding to questions posed by postmodernism and poststructuralism, and the range of on-the-ground responses to calls for Christians to live as radical exiles in the aftermath of secularist transformation.

Keywords: geo-ethics; neoliberal forms of governance; postmodernism; poststructuralism; secularism; theo-ethics
