Item Description...
This volume makes available three of Capon's sought-after early works: An Offering of Uncles, The Third Peacock, and Hunting the Divine Fox. Each book offers a refreshingly different take on key theological issues--the priesthood of humankind, the problem of God and evil, and the language of theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Keep it light or it will not be light at all."  May 23, 2000
A conservative Episcopal priest, Capon is to theological reflection what stand-up comedy is to an academic lecture. Both may be true, but which one will you spend money to hear on a Friday date?

His lighthearted style belies the depth of his thought, and his passion for the truth. I have a theological degree myself, and found that his style resonated with some of the most meaningful theology I have encountered. That he makes it accessible is even more to his credit.

In sequence he deals with quite serious themes: our common priestly office as human beings, the nature of and reason for evil, and the will of God. He is always creative and original.

"We have forgotten, you see, not what reality means, but how it smells and what it tastes like. The work of theology in our day is not so much interpretation as contemplation. God and the world need to be held up for oohs and aahs before they can safely be analyzed. Theology begins with admiration, not problems."

Any pastor who expects me to sit weekly to hear him preach should spend time with Capon. Maybe some of it will rub off on him, too.
