5.0 out of 5 stars Soaring on Eagleton's wings ..., 24 Jun 2009
This review is from: Reason, Faith, and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate (Terry Lectures) (The Terry Lectures) (Hardcover)
Terry Eagleton is such a joy to read. His text is actually very dense in the amount of content it conveys in such a modest page run, yet it is so entertainingly written that you barely notice the density. I think this book will be of great interest to anyone who is interested in what the solid, orthodox theology of Christianity (the original variety, dating back long before the DIY versions of the post-reformation period which are home to the anti-science and anti-justice lobbies amongst the so-called Christian right, especially in North America) has to say about the project of love, justice and radical living for the greater good of others which Jesus of Nazareth came to proclaim and live - which of course got him murdered by a world that can't tolerate unconditional love. This book gives what's at once a timeless account, and a very contemporary rendition of the Gospel, with emphasis on its social dimensions. It's not only about liberation theology - it is a liberating and diverting read in itself.
