''Conor Sweeney's is a welcome new voice in the burgeoning choir of theologians returning to metaphysics. Carefully critiquing postmodern Heideggerian approaches to sacramental presence, he invites us to recognize the sacraments' transcendent love in the mother's smile. With this evocative use of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Sweeney sets us on the right path: an approach to sacramentality that moves beyond the flat horizons of language and time.''
--Hans Boersma, J. I. Packer Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC, Canada
''This work will be immensely valuable for those who teach sacramental theology with reference to the Trinitarian Christocentrism embedded in the magisterial teachings of the post-Conciliar era. Sweeney is critical of both the Baroque scholastic temptation (offering the world a metaphysics devoid of the encounter with Christ) and the postmodern temptation (concluding we can't say anything definite about anything.) Instead he suggests we reimagine sacramental presence according to the perspective of the nuptial mystery.''
--Tracey Rowland, Permanent Fellow in Political Philosophy and Continental Theology, John Paul II Institute, Melbourne, Australia --Wipf and Stock Publishers
