    This is not an easy read lots of very academic language and some scholarly jargon In fact, I d have to suggest listening to the three part series of Ideas podcasts from the Canadian Public Radio where Kearney is interviewed and discusses all this stuff Still, I am totally convinced that what Kearney is getting at here is about as close to what I ve come to believe as anything ever has been I won t assert that this is life changing stuff for everyone, but it is for me.

    Kearney s discussion of possibility, of the power of God as posse instead of esse, has been critical for me Love his style and brevity.
