I didn’t expect much from this article but was surprised at the application of Derrida’s deconstruction from within a religious perspective. Also I wasn’t aware of the use of this by ex-evangelicals. That’s not a surprise as anything related to evangelicals is not something I care to deal with.

I’m very tempted to say that this is a spiritually healthy thing. Deconstruction as presented here should create a viable, spiritual awareness. While that will, inevitably I think, eliminate religion as anything other than a cultural legacy it could move people on to a dynamic involvement in our role as sentient beings functioning as agents in an evolving universe.

That’s good.
