Deeply profound, brilliant, and insightful.

Deeply profound, brilliant, and insightful. It is a definitive volume that should be included on every bookshelf devoted to the subject. The writing is clear, yet eloquent and filled with Truth. It is paradoxical in that it is complex, yet simple, in approach and content. Then again, the greatest paradoxes often contain the most beauty and truth.

A cursory glance at the table of contents may lead the reader to believe that he is sufficiently knowledgeable about the subjects under discussion. But I urge you against passing it up due to such an assumption. Despite prior knowledge, I found that I grew in understanding because of the philosophical bent of the material. It provides, therefore, a deeper understanding of that which we may already "know". Theology is the greatest and truest form of philosophy, and this is a wonderful example of it.
