A completed thread on A. Louth's Discerning the Mystery

I am delighted to announce that Sister Macrina Walker, osco, author of the blog A Vow of Conversation, has completed a thorough review of Andrew Louth's important work, Discerning the Mystery: An Essay on the Nature of Theology. Why is he important? To be honest, from my perspective it's because his name keeps popping up in Brevard Childs' work in an area that is foundational to the entire enterprise of theological exegesis: the nature of allegory. I have yet to read the book myself and am glad to have to opportunity to catch a preview in Sister Macrina's posts.

For more online material on Andrew Louth, the Statesman has a series of articles.
