What can a theologian do with Deleuze? While using philosophy as a resource for theologyis nothing new, Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) presents a kind of limit-case for such a theological appropriation of philosophy: a thoroughly "modern"philosophy that would seem to be fundamentally hostile to Christian theology-a philosophy of atheistic immanence with an essentially chaotic vision of theworld. Nonetheless, Deleuze's philosophy can generate many potential intersections with theology opening onto a field of configurations: a fractiousmiddle between radical Deleuzian theologies that would think through theology and reinterpret it from the perspective of some version of Deleuzian philosophyand other theologies that would seek to learn from and respond to Deleuze from the perspective of confessional theology-to take from the encounter withDeleuze an opportunity to clarify and reform an orthodox Christian self-understanding.
