In a culture where institutional religion is in decline there is a pressing need for new theological strategies.

Editorial Reviews

"Executed in a clear and lively style, [Shanks's] turn to the poetic is a valuable contribution to both postmodern discourse about theological truth and current Catholic debates about the liturgy. His esthetical theology challenges the restorationist tendency toward liturgy as ecclesial self-glorification. His esthetic is in the service of justice."-Jack A. Bonsor, "Theological Studies "A highly teachable book for seminarians and one with insights to offer literary criticism and continental philosophy."-Cleo Kearns "Religious Studies Review, October 2002
