"Many books are produced each year within the discipline of political theology; very few, if any, are like The Problem with Grace. . . . [It] is likely to exert a gravitational force on the direction of political theology, which will be better off for it." -- Rick Elgendy
"This is an important book, not only for its exquisite handling of complex figures, arguments, problems, and tensions, but because it displays so well what its thesis is all about: a political theology that disenchants the sphere of the ordinary. Lloyd wants a political theology that is always moving about in the jagged messiness of ordinary living, where values, norms, and practices are already understood and policed by religious languages and practices. This book will deepen post-modern/post-liberal discussions of religion and public life, public theology, and political theology." -- Victor Anderson
"The Problem with Grace is a strange and wonderful book, anti-intellectual in the best sense. The defense of the ordinary here, indebted to the work of the late Gillian Rose, will threaten scholars in a wide variety of fields at the same time that the examples Lloyd invokes will energize them and enliven their classrooms. We live in an age in which the slow is at its maximal appeal: slow food, slow art, slow sex. Lloyd's work is the first I know that can be proudly described as slow thinking." -- Martin Kavka, Florida State University
