"The reader who works through Adam's tightly woven argument and vivid illustrations to the conclusion of Christ and Horrors will surely appreciate the philosophical and theological reason that she brings to the centrality of the 'bread and wine of Christ's humanity, scarred by crucifixion, glorified by resurrection' and her profound faith--even in light (or darkness) of the worst horrors--that 'consummate horror-defeat in all three stages will complete the consecration of the whole material creation and of its best fruit, humankind' (313)." - Sally Stamper, The University of Chicago Divinity School, Chicago, Illinois
"[A] rich and provocative read."
The Thomist, Ralph Del Colle, Marquette University
Who would the Saviour have to be, what would the Saviour have to do to rescue human beings from the meaning-destroying experiences of their lives such as permanent pain or sadistic abuse? This book offers a systematic Christology that is at once biblical and philosophical, focusing on Christ as horror-defeater.
