Why I enjoyed The Raven Cycle …

… and would love to get my hands on an ARC:

"This is a series that pulls you forward even as you seek to savor it.  It balances those equally enjoyable sensations and that is what makes it great." (from my review of The Dream Thieves)

“Our inherited theology has spent the best part of two thousand years wooing, living with, separating from, and trying to win back History-with-a-capital-H. It now needs to learn how to live with a much more down-to-earth, messy, painful, everyday, contingent, non-capitalized history, beginning with the New Testament story of the Son of Man, which is the story of how God judged, restored and promoted his people amongst the nations of the ancient world. It’s not the same woman. Theology should not assume that it knows her.” —
