Benjamin Myers just received «God Is Not a Story»

Cover: God Is Not a Story

Ben at Faith and Theology blog has announced the arrival of the following book: Francesca Aran Murphy: God Is Not a Story: Realism Revisited. Gotta say: I love the provocative cover: Jacques-Louis David's "beautiful lie" The Death of Marat. To judge a book by the cover, I'd say that the imbecility (i.e. the weakness) of narrative theology is that the power of art, making, fiction, poesis, myth, story, etc. is readily appropriated by the enemies of the Word-made-flesh. As Fr. Giussani has written, "only God's power, no matter where, starts, spreads, and guides Christianity in an individual and in society" (The Journey to Truth Is an Experience, p87).
