'Carefully and charitably written, mercifully free from the sort of polemicising and posturing that characterises some of the writers he discusses, Lucie-Smith's book deserves to be widely read, and its central thesis developed. His lucid style would be accessible to general readers as well as more specialised academics, and would reward the study of those who, week by week, are entrusted with the task of expounding the Gospel narrative,and opening up the infinite horizon to which they point.' Church Times 'Alexander Lucie-Smith [...] offers a very intelligent, scholarly argument, incorporating narrative theology into a more Catholic context. Moreover, in a world in which cross-cultural dialogue and ethics are all the more important, he aims to keep narratives from being trapped in their own local traditions... In sum, Lucie-Smith has given the field of theological ethics a very significant contribution.' The Tablet
