Review

Mentioned in Church Times, March 2010

Edited vesion of Terry Eagleton's Foreword printed in The Tablet, 12th June 2010.

'[McCabe was] a highly creative and insightful thinker, who had vivid sense of what was of enduring human importance beneath the technical tangles of philosophical and theological debate.' The Tablet


'McCabe was ... a highly creative and insightful thinker, who had a vivid sense of what was of enduring human importance beneath the technical tangles of philosophical and theological debate ... Disarmingly honest ... this impressive work ... does not offer any final answer to the problem of evil; but is does ... enhance our understanding of what is involved in adopting a religious view of the world.'
The Tablet


Reviewed in Church Times 20th August, (UK)

'As interpretation of Aquinas, as well as an approach to the problem of evil, this book is obviously controversial'



The book is mentioned in an article on Terry Eagleton, who wrote the foreword. (The American Spectator)

'Pithy, and with a way of putting things that often seems singularly insightful... this is a welcome addition to the McCabe corpus... McCabe had a rich and fertile mind, and his stature is such that it is valuable and instructive to be helped to trace his development and occasional lapses.'
(Journal Of Theological Studies)

'Pithy, and with a way of putting things that often seems singularly insightful… this is a welcome addition to the McCabe corpus… McCabe had a rich and fertile mind, and his stature is such that it is valuable and instructive to be helped to trace his development and occasional lapses.’
(Sanford Lakoff)

One of the distinct pleasures of studying the work of Herbert McCabe . . . is the brilliant wit and insight with which McCabe takes us from theological muddle to the blinding light of mystery. . . . For the student who wants to uncover the deep structure of McCabe's Thomistic theology, the present volume is invaluable. (Sanford Lakoff)

Format: Paperback
The author has clearly spent a lot of time contemplating the matters discussed in this book, and his thoughts are well-argued and thought-provoking. They're also fairly well explained. I never once took a single theology or philosophy class, and I was able to follow (although it did take a lot of re-reading for some sections). The author also treats his subjects very objectively, making no judgments without rationalizations.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. The author, who was around 30 years old when he wrote it, reveals a profound domain a depth in the understanding of the thought of Thomas Aquinas. I have been acquainted with Thomas's thought for many years and must say that McCabe shows a depth in this understanding, which places him among the best "thomists" ever. The problem enunciated by the title is studied in depth and thoroughly. This book is a must for anyone interested in the problem and has some knowledge of (non trivial) philosophical matters.
