This wonderful trilogy again makes available three of Robert Farrar Capon's sought-after early works: An Offering of Uncles, The Third Peacock, and Hunting the Divine Fox. Brought together under one cover to stand as a kind of "theological trinity," the books in this volume each offer a refreshingly different take on key theological issues. A substantial new preface by Capon introduces the books and reveals how each fits into his own literary and spiritual landscape.
The New York Times Book Review
On The Third Peacock:
"Capon will help many readers past some of the roughest bumps on the road to examining 'the problem of evil' and 'the goodness of God' — thus making life a bit more endurable."
The Christian Century
On Hunting the Divine Fox:
"Many religious writers have turned again to emphasizing the love of God over dogma and morality, and while the message has been welcome it has often been delivered flatly or simplistically. Father Capon excels in that he has his pack of theological hounds come at their quarry from all sides, with many kinds of images, mind-bending, rib-tickling. Theology, he says, is a word game, the most serious word game of all, and he plays it very well indeed."
