Adam S. Miller

Abstract

This book offers a novel account of grace, framed in terms of Bruno Latour's “principle of irreduction.” It thus models an object-oriented approach to grace, experimentally moving a traditional Christian understanding of grace out of a top-down, theistic ontology and into an agent-based, object-oriented ontology.
