As we continue to work on The Idolatry of God Retreat we realized that we needed someone who could address the wider cultural, political and religious significance of Pyrotheology. Whoever we invited would not only require an expert knowledge of the radical movement in general, but also an in-depth understanding of my own project and the new collectives that it calls for.
As the curator of the event I knew immediately that we needed Katharine Moody. A few emails later and I’m pleased to say that she said “yes.” With two books set for immanent release (Post-Secular Theology and the Church: A New Kind of Christian is A New Kind of Atheist and Radical Theology and Emerging Christianity: Deconstruction, Materialism and Religious Practice) Katharine is a writer, speaker and academic who is making a name for herself as one of the new generation of critical religious thinkers. Working at the intersection of philosophy, theology and religious studies, as well as possessing a deep understanding of lived religion, she is a leading interpreter of my theological project (along with that of John Caputo and Slavoj Žižek) and is thus perfectly placed to bring an added depth and direction to the retreat.
