    EDIT I am far critical of the Radical Orthodoxy project than I was when I wrote this review Their genealogical critique of Scotus has been refuted and some of the essays, if not bizarre, are downright troubling Graham Ward Further, Jamie Smith has decisively cut Radical Orthodoxy to the bone But here goes I will write this review in topical format, rather than reviewing chapter by chapter The authors in this book propose a new theological vision critiquing the modern project by drawing upon Patristic and Medieval sources.OntologyThe authors suggest that Western Christendom experienced an intellectual fall from grace around 1300 This dealt with the nature of being or ontology Previously, for the church fathers or early scholastics, both faith and reason are included in the generic framework of participation in the mind of God Milbank, 24 This meant while faith and reason are distinct, there is no duality Likewise, creation itself participates in God God is transcendent and suspended from creation The suspension analogy is apt God is high above creation but he can and will participate in it.However, after Duns Scotus elevated being to the level of God...
