Absolutely shameless self-promotion: Criticism of Heaven

Happened to stumble upon this review of Criticism of Heaven:

What a brilliant, wide-ranging, boundary-scoffing book. Boer rampages through Western Marxist thought for almost 500 pages, dissecting and challenging the theological and Biblical aspects that are part of the approach of these thinkers. Fine. Others have noted such influence. What’s magnificent is that by the end, Boer’s helped you understand these major, fascinating figures more deeply and also inspired you to think about the continued possibilities as we move forward from here to seek to build a better world.

I’m not sure how many people are anxious to read 50-page chunks on the theological/Biblical aspects of Bloch, Benjamin, Althusser, Lefebvre, Gramsci, Eagleton, Zizek, and Adorno. But if you think that might be you, hie thee to your browser and order this delight from Haymarket Books.

It is on Goodreads and has given me a swollen head and rather good feeling for the rest of the day.

One thought on “Absolutely shameless self-promotion: Criticism of Heaven

  1. I saw this post the day you posted it, and was enjoying reading it, then felt puzzled as the quoted text seemed familiar, then realized you were quoting my review and saying it had swelled your head. It made my day to enlarge your head (though I was a little too bashful to say so at the time). Anyway, thanks again for all your wonderful work. I’m savoring Volume 2 at the moment, enjoying the security of knowing three more wait after that.

    My best to you and yours.
