Easter in Ordinary: Reflections on Human Experience and the Knowledge of God

A classical, contemporary example of the theological mind at its clearest is Nicholas Lash's Easter in Ordinary. This complex, distilled, but deeply affecting study of William James, Newman, von Hugel, and Buber, among others, is the choice product of the believing theologian's art. Tradition rebottled with an awareness of postmodern needs but not necessarily with the mass-market tastes in mind. Demanding, uncommon, quenching. --Commonweal
