'The risk he takes, the range of problems he engages, the imaginative power of his mind, the sheer energy that pulses through these essays make this book essential for anyone who would understand the phenomenon - the gift - that bears the name of John Milbank.' (Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University)
'This is a marvellous collection of well-organized essays by perhaps the most thought-provoking theologian of the moment. They will confirm John Milbank's reputation as one of the most accomplished and singular of theologians currently writing.' (William Desmond Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven)
' These essays, published over thirty years and gathered in this important new book, demonstrate the consistent acuity and imaginative power of John Milbank's politico-theological vision.' (Michael Northcott University of Edinburgh) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The author assumes you know contemporary theology and philosophy before you read any of the essays, so readers should be aware of this. Also, it would be best to read some of his other books first, or Jame A. K. Smith's Introducing Radical Orthodoxy. That said, Milbank is brilliant and anyone interested in his perspective would enjoy this collection of essays.
