The Romance of the Word: One Man's Love Affair with Theology : Three Books
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1995 - 373 էջ
This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.
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.
