Far from disappearing after 1989, left-wing political philosophy is today experiencing a renewed vitality. Among the most surprising developments in this renewal is its extensive interest in religion and theology. In this book, Swedish theologian Ola Sigurdson inquire into the reasons for this interest in two prominent Marxist thinkers, the British literary theorist and Catholic agnostic Terry Eagleton and the Slovenian philosopher and Protestant atheist Slavoj Žižek. Showing that their theological choices have profound implications for their political conceptions, Sigurdson suggests that Marxism and theology has a common ground in the urgency of the question of hope.
