This chapter looks at Kearney's hermeneutics of religion, reflecting on the concept of God. It claims that Kearney's hermeneutics of religion might be called a covenantal process view without the metaphysics or, perhaps more accurately, with only intimations of metaphysics. The ontological claim is — God is coming, will come, can come — but only if people help God come, only if they do their part by witnessing love and justice in the world. His God is not beyond being, but emptied into being, on the side of being. By “being” he includes the least of beings to whom we owe justice and love. The incarnate God appears to need people in order to become fully embodied. Finally, the discussion reflects that Kearney's brand of deconstructive theology is deeply satisfying as a Christian.
