This title was first published in 2001. A volume of essays on the Pauline, ecclesiastical body of Christ -the church. It is, of course, not possible to separate completely one body of Christ from another, and the essays do not make the attempt. The dark, institutional history of the church is a running theme, a running sore, throughout the volume; in that sense the essays respond to Michel Foucault's insistence that we should be mindful of the institutions that surreptitiously inform our discourse and culture. The essays deal with the myriad of ways in which the church is named, spoken and, above all, written in the age of secularization. In this sense, the contributors are simply exploring the relationship between the church and modern writing.
