He Is Who Is

One of David Bentley Hart's deeper points is that the major theistic religions do indeed have something in common when they say “God.”

Dworkin’s Jisei

'Religion Without God' is a lovely swan song. It is short—it’s based on the Einstein Lectures delivered at the University of Bern in 2011—but eloquent and rich.

Beyond the Cloister

Williams astutely alerts us to Evdokimov’s proposition that the vows of a religious are analogous to Christ’s response to the temptations in the desert.

When Martyrdom Isn’t a Metaphor

Not many Christians in the West are aware that in many parts of the world Christians still risk their lives just by going to church to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Grief Detained

Barnes's broodings are intelligent, often eloquent, and just to the elegiac occasion. But Barnes is also sometimes hard.

At Our Mercy

We have failed utterly to protect our planet and those who share it with us. For Christians, this constitutes a profound break with God.

Not Beanbag

Ignatieff’s constructive approach to politics, like his commitments to democracy and social justice, remains untainted by the bitter experiences he describes.

Squeaky Hinge

Thomas Cahill's words are not easy to understand but point to a persistent presentism, a tendency to view the past through the lens of the present.

Witness

'Story of a Secret State' promises an insider’s perspective on Poland’s Home Army, the largest resistance organization in Nazi-occupied Europe --- and delivers it.

Borrowed Voices

Averill Curdy’s poems seek to widen the reader’s sense of self by finding room for several selves, real and imagined, within a single mind.

American Innocence

'The Irony of American History' shines a klieg light on the so-called war on terror and the current debate over the operations of our “national security state."

Odd Couples

Judi Dench radiates from a still center, and Emma Thompson confirms that she is the best movie actress in the English-speaking world.
