Editorial Reviews


'The book glows on all its pages with rigourous argument, honest observation and apposite examples, expressed in brilliantly accurate phrases. One particular virtue is the way McCabe refuses to let an appeal to God short-circuit his arguement from nature' (Timothy McDermott Times Literary Supplement)

'..his essays on ethics are concise and illuminating, and they creatively pass on the tradition of Aristotle and Aquinas.'
(The Christian Century)

'...engaging and stimulating book.'
(Dom David Foster Downside Review)

'Brian Davies OP, ...praises it highly and justly.'
Theology, Helen Oppenheimer, 01/09/2006

'...engaging and stimulating book.'
(Sanford Lakoff Downside Review)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was an okay novel. Because I was forced to read it, I don't think I could love it due to forced reading, but the content was good.
