Rambling, not analytical, little biblical data

So dissappointing. They rambled on and on boringly without meat or substance; after hours of reading, it's hard to tell what the point was and even what might be useful or interesting. They didn't analyze the Bible or use it as a significant source, so their assertions were grounded only in their cloudy vague personal ideas of what sounds nice when you string words together. I require clear, analytical, organized, and systematic argumentation to justify claims and conclusions, but this book had none of that. Sometimes, they would merely tell us what definition of a word they would like to use, and then pretend that they made a justified argument, when in reality all they did was state what definition they are using. They abuse words. They do not prepare us on how to address concrete issues.

Deep insights and wild leaps

This volume has some wonderful insights and challenging ideas as well as wild leaps into existentialism. The insights into the influence of the enlightenment on the western church is really helpful for framing the modern and postmodern discussion. The section on gender is wildly nonsensical. The readers leave something to be desired - they do not seem to know to pronounce many of the theological terms they have to read.

Fascinating content, couple narration issues.

This is a fascinating collection of essays, which uses the liturgy as a gateway into post-liberal ethical reflection on a variety of topics. The narrators are for the most part up to the task of clearly articulating these academic essays full of technical theological language. There are a few words that they consistently pronounce incorrectly (including "theologians"). This distracts somewhat from the content of the essays.
