PressestimmenReviews of the hardback: 'This book is, throughout, an invigorating and challenging read.' Church Times '... scholars interested in the relationships between nature, grace and history, will find this work very stimulating and illuminating. It is also beautifully written, it contains valuable bibliographical references, and it is not scared to be interdisciplinary.' International Journal of Systematic Theology 'There is much to praise in this book, not least of which is its articulate insistence that Christian theologians (and, I would add, philosophers) need to be far more modest in their claims to have discerned God's presence and plans amid history's turbulent flow. Quash succeeds, sometimes brilliantly, in exposing some of the epic meanderings in von Balthasar's vast corpus.' Scottish Journal of Theology
