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.
