In the mail – Paradoxes of Faith by De Lubac

Well, it’s books, books and more books for me on this Friday.  And, guess what … that’s just the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it.

This go round I want to say thank you to Ignatius Press for sending me a copy of Paradoxes of Faith by Henri De Lubac.  I just finished reading Catholicism: Christ and the Common Destiny of Man (another Ignatius title) and was hungering for a bit more.  And, this title intrigued me.  I know that De Lubac has had a significant impact on Benedict XVI, and one of my favorite lines in Benedict’s Introduction to Christianity (another Ignatius title – if you haven’t gathered by now, I think you should check out Ignatius Press if you haven’t done so by now) is where he paraphrases St. Cyran as saying: “Faith consists of a series of contradictions held together by grace.”  This is actually one of the quotes on my FaceBook profile.  At any rate, I thought that Paradoxes of Faith was probably a must read for me.  I’m looking forward to it.
