Editorial Reviews


"Beautifully written and elegantly theorized."-Virgnia Burrus, Drew Theological Seminary

"The book takes up traditional theological topics such as prayer, sacraments, and Scripture, reading them in a way that explores not a 'fixed' meaning, but rather how these practices and texts allow God to call and shape people. . Recommended" -Choice

"In the Republic, Plato's Socrates calls for lovers of poetry to speak in prose about the benefits of poetic instruction and pleasure; this requires respect for tragedy, but not obsession with it. Karmen MacKendrick is one of those rare thinkerstoo rare in a dispirited republic who speaks the language that Socrates is calling for. In Divine Enticement, she does for theology what Anne Carson does for classics: she restores intrigue and eros to erudition." -Jim Wetzel, Villanova University

"Once again, MacKendrick's contemplative writing draws us, calls us, into a bottomlessly alluring enigma. Much too enticing, this text, for theology or philosophy proper--and yet students at the liveliest reaches of either must irresistibly respond. For with its gentle brilliance, it plumbs the deep unknowing from which any knowledge worth thinking emanates."-Catherine Keller, Drew University
