Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mindy Makant offers a theologically astute and pastorally wise engagement with the question of profound suffering. This book creatively synthesizes multiple discourses to address some of theology's most difficult questions, yielding valuable insights for theologians, pastors, chaplains, and spiritual directors alike."―Scott Bader-Saye, Professor of Christian Ethics and Moral Theology, Seminary of the Southwest

"Far more than a monograph, this study incorporates empirical findings on human suffering with diverse Christian theological traditions, embedded in philosophical sophistication, making it accessible to inquirers today. Comprehensive in stature and compelling in depiction of human dilemmas, The Practice of Story invites us to a feast in the midst of chaos."―David Burrell, Hesburgh Professor emeritus, University of Notre Dame

"Makant skillfully explores the devastating experience of extreme suffering, and tenderly leads readers to see anew how love, not suffering, has the final word. The Practice of Story invites readers to expand our theological imaginations, to open our eyes and to participate in God's redemptive movement in life."―Pamela R. McCarroll, author of The End of Hope - the Beginning: Narratives of Hope in the Face of Death and Trauma --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
