A new book has just landed on my desk, and it looks remarkable: Francesca Aran Murphy, God Is Not a Story: Realism Revisited (Oxford University Press, 2007). The author offers a critique of narrative theology – especially in the work of Frei, Lindbeck, Herbert McCabe, and Robert W. Jenson – and she draws on Hegel, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and film theory to present a new “dramatic” form of Thomist realism. Sounds fantastic! Stay tuned for a review.
