Reviews

Praise for Christ Actually: The Son of God for the Secular Age "With well-researched clarity, Carroll explores the question posed by anti-Nazi Lutheran pastor and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer: who actually is Christ for us today?... Because Christ actually is meaningful in some way to a billion Christians around the globe, this heartfelt investigation is of interest to many." --Publishers Weekly "Carroll...strives to reconceive Christ for a secular, post-Holocaust, post-Hiroshima era....readers seeking a faith responsive to the zeitgeist will find it here." --Booklist "An in-depth, thought-provoking challenge to two millennia of Christian interpretation." --Kirkus Reviews "Written in the brisk, argumentative style that has won James Carroll a broad popular readership, Christ Actually avoids the interminable maundering of academic prose, even as its extensive footnotes indicate attention to advanced, if radical, scholarship. Conservative Christians may well be shocked and annoyed at Carroll's configuration of Jesus. Nevertheless, for its pushback against the boundaries of conventional interpretations and, above all, for its passionate presentation of the sinfulness of Christian anti-Semitism, his book deserves serious attention." --Commonweal magazine Praise for Constantine's Sword "Monumental...An eye-opening journey through twenty centuries of history..This is a book for everyone."--Christian Science Monitor "A triumph."--The Atlantic Monthly "A deeply felt work, a book that measures the sweep of history against [his] experience as a man of the church."--Floyd Skloot, San Franciso Chronicle "Remarkable . . . A book of a deeper sort." --Andrew Sullivan, The New York Times Book Review "A masterly history . . . fascinating, brave." --Time Praise for "Christ Actually: The Son of God for the Secular Age" "With well-researched clarity, Carroll explores the question posed by anti-Nazi Lutheran pastor and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer: who actually is Christ for us today?...
