Overview J. Marshall Jenkins believes that irony undergirds the ordinary. Through the ironies of God's presence and absence, and human life and death, he feels the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Through the eyes of faith, one can catch glimpses of Christ.Some stories in this volume present biblical themes in a contemporary context; others examine contemporary spiritual concerns in biblical stories. All of the essays have grown out of the author's personal search for Christ, never to find him, always to be found in him.
