Without a doubt Agamben's style in this book, compared to that in "The Open", was drastically influenced by Derrida. His Deconstructive-style rants were both exciting and infuriating. He explicitly states the questions that he seemingly intends to answer and, regardless of what he may think, fails to do so. Agamben missed some key scriptures that would have undoubtedly helped shape some sort of an answer to (at least) the question of the state of the law in the Messianic time-frame. Nonetheless, the book brought up interesting points and noteworthy references (regardless of whether or not they actually supported said points).
