    Great prayerful reading

    Using Nietzsche's allegory of the madman, Rolheiser examines the nature of modernity. Rather than focusing only on the madman's rant, "God is dead," as legions of philosophy students have, he looks at the madman's entire speech. In tying the language of madness to the ways in which we view both God and religion post-enlightenment he also provides a possible answer to the question, is our relationship with God--or lack thereof--reparative. Is it possible to have the type of relationship we imagine existed prior to the modern age? Is that type of relationship healthy? Are there new ways for us to form a relationship with God? I found in insightful, but very different from every other book Rolheiser has currently in print.
