  • Sale! november-final

    November
    ( paperback )

    $25.00 $20.00

  • Sale! Tunnel of Babel

    Tunnel of Babel
    ( Paperback )

    $14.00 $11.25

    In this sequel to his recent novel God’s Hazard and the theological medita- tions of his classic Experience and Religion, Nicholas Mosley shifts between essay and fiction in his examination of the place of faith in contempo- rary culture. Mosley embraces with cautious optimism the evidence of a growing “thaw” (in fiction, film, and public discourse) regarding the acceptance of religion in the modern world, and presents his own daring contribution to this trend: a story of a modern-day Holy Family formed by a male writer, a woman, and her son of dubious parentage. Taking a stand against both the militant atheism of Richard Dawkins and sectar- ian fundamentalism, Mosley argues for a clear-sighted form of deistic faith based not on unquestioning certainty but on an ongoing reappraisal of truth and ethics.
