About the Author

Nicholas Lash is Emeritus Norris-Hulse Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. His many books include Believing Three Ways in One God and Easter in Ordinary, also published by the University of Notre Dame Press.


"Lash has always seen the task of the theologian as the exercise of unflagging intellectual and spiritual guardianship of belief in and fidelity to God as God, and not as something else. To this end the instruments of theological thought-a clear and modest terminology, for example, coherent argument, and knowledge of the long history of 'faith's quest for understanding'-must be kept clean and sharp. This book shows over and over again how good at this vital (living as well as necessary) maintenance of the toolbox Lash has been and is. . . . Lash's writing is never dull, always crisp and clear, and sometimes diamond-brilliant." -Times Literary Supplement
"Nicholas Lash's new collection of essays revisits a recurring thesis of his work: that our words, concepts, discourse about God are not God as some entity or God who can be treated as some thing subject to empirical enquiry, but rather the God of our worship and liturgy. Consequently it is the primary job of theology and of the theologian to seek to reflect on that which is enacted in worship." -Theology
