Seldom have God matters been treated with such verve, sense, rigour and humour as in the collection of writings by Herbert McCabe. This book demonstrates the depth and clarity of his theology and philosophy of God, his appetite for controversy, both political and theological, as well as a traditional catholic concern for prayer, liturgy, Mary and St Dominic.

Part 1 God: creation; freedom; evil; the involvement of God. Part 2 Incarnation: the myth of God incarnate; the Incarnation - an exchange (with professor Maurice Wiles). Part 3 Atonement - a long sermon for Holy Week: Holy Thursday - the mystery of unity; Good Friday - the mystery of the cross; the Easter Vigil - the mystery of new life. Part 4 Sacraments: transubstantiation and the real presence; some thoughts on the eucharistic preface by G. Egner (P.J. Fitzpatrick); transubstantiation - a reply to G. Egner; more thoughts on the eucharistic presence by G. Egner; sacramental language. Part 5 Morals and politics: the class struggle and Christian love; thoughts on hunger strikes. Part 6 Talks and sermons: the Immaculate Conception; prayer; obedience; a sermon for St Thomas; on being Dominican; Ash Wednesday; the genealogy of Christ.
