Editorial Reviews

Review

"Here is the latest collection of unpublished papers of the late Herbert McCabe, and what a treat it is. The combination of crystal logic, sparkling wit, and interrogative fides quaerens intellectum, deeply informed by Aquinas and richly modulated by Wittgenstein, are again on bravura display...excellent."
(Kim Fabricius, Faith & Theology)

"This is a book that has much to offer professional academics and general readers alike. It is the work of a born communicator, who has the power to inspire and to touch the heart, as well as to argue his case with care and with rigour. Christianity could do with more such advocates"
(John Cottingham The American Spectator)

"McCabe had written important articles during the 'Myth of God Incarnate' controversy and the clarity of his thought shines through in a sermon which is a model exposition of the Christian faith." New Directions, July 2007
(Owen Higgs New Directions)

'As one has come to expect of McCabe, there is wonderful clarity to the writing.'
Canon David Brown, Church Times
(Canon David Brown, Church Times, October 2007 Church Times)

"McCabe has been influentual in creating the commonest modern account [of Aquinas]"

McCabe applies good theology to understanding religious practice with scientific method clearly. He predicates concepts of God that expands popular limitations many have when applied to religious ideas & practice.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Herbert McCabe was a very deep theologian and philosopher, dead at the beginning of this century. He is a philosoher-theologian, which are the best theologians. (Nowadays, most catholic hteologians seem to be sociologist-theologian. There is no comparison, they are much less deep.) The book is a set of articles (13) by the author, written in different times, but all of them are deep and original (and orthodox). It pays to read it, not necessarily in the order, but according to your preference of the subjects, all of them related to the title of hte book
