Postmodern Text par excellence

Just read a postmodern book par excellence.

It begins with the genealogy of power.
Every chapter is a deconstruction.
Truth is questioned and left unanswered, or seemingly so.
Social categories are questioned and radically overturned.
It contains incredulity towards all metanarratives.
Justice is the un-deconstructible finality.
Every page demands the reader's response.
And it ends with a subversive allegory.

What book?

It comes in many names.

Commonly, it's called The New Testament.
