Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Trained as a physicist and a Roman Catholic priest, Albacete has written a fine book of short reflections on religion, its place in our world, its at-times troubled relationship to its own truth claims, the meaning of suffering, and the experience of pluralism and liberalism. Albacete cites the thought of John Paul II and Cardinal Ratzinger, to be sure, but he also engages with Germaine Greer, Federico Garc!a Lorca, and Paul Ricoeur. Albacete's profound sense of the religious leads him not to dogma but to a series of sensitively framed, sincere questions that should catch the attention and empathy of many readers. Highly recommended for most collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

This is an amasing book. As a physics student, a catholic, and a generally inquisitve person I highly recommend it! The author is very insightful and uses wit and stoicism in the right places. He's never preachy. He's very honest. He comments on everything from monty python to the holocaust. This ia a great modern apologetic and examination of the human condition. Its also a fairly quick read(a few days)!
