"Written with the confidence of a master, the book generates a gravitational force field all its own: at once humble in its tone and stunning in its sweep." - Catherine Keller, author of Apocalypse Now and Then: A Feminist Guide to the End of the World "Postmodernism is not just an intellectual development; it is a cultural reality making it very difficult to address social issues that require system change and not just cultural criticism. Cobb addresses this in a creative way." - Warren Copeland, Wittenberg University
