"From now on, even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way; everything old has passed away, see, everything has become new!" Saint Paul's militant declaration from Corinthians asserts the revolutionary logic of a radical break with the past - with it, the age of cosmic balance and similar pagan babble is over. What does it mean to return to this stance in the modern world. The "Fragile Absolute" asserts that Christianity and Marxism should fight together against the onslaught of new spiritualism. The subversive core of the Christian legacy is much too precious to be left to the fundamentalists. This book offers a contribution from a Marxist to the 2000th anniversary of one who was well aware that to practice love in our world is to bring in the sword and fire.
