Michael Kirwan. Girard and theology

Danilo S. Alterado



Michael Kirwan’s book on Rene Girard entitled Girard and theology is adept in style that makes it practical and handy. It shows the author’s extensive knowledge on Girardian thought, its evolution, and its varied implications as it impinges on theological themes and issues. The work is more than just a parade of Girard’s ideas because it took a judicious consideration of both sympathetic and critical reception of Girardian thought. Apparently, Kirwan’s book is a successful illustration on how Girard matters to theology.
