Overview

From within a dangerous and crowded postmodernity, Catherine Keller's impassioned, graceful meditation holds up an intuitive mirror to the magnetic depths of cosmic origin. Drawing upon the fractal science of chaos, evolution and complexity, and seamed with allusive flickerings of light and dark, it posits the discovery of a chaotic identity that, though not conventionally pure, fulfils the prophecy that this world and all of its creatures are potentially 'good'. As a landmark work of immense significance for Jewish and Christian theology, gender studies, literature, philosophy and ecology, The Face of the Deep takes our originary story to a new horizon of profundity and poetry, rewriting the starting point for western spiritual discourse.
