Reviews - What do customers think about Figuring the Sacred?

Comprehensive Contemporary Theology   Mar 12, 2008
Ricoeur's work in the areas of hermeneutics and theology has been invaluable, and the essays contained in this book are particularly poignant and accessible. His work on Memory and Suffering alone make the book an excellent purchase, and every essay attests to the irreducible nature of God, Scripture, and Theology in a way few authors have done. An excellent work.
Pretty dense reading for the layman  Nov 13, 2006
I have read a lot of Ricoeur, mostly in the area of religion. I am not a professional philosopher, just an educated layman. This one contained a lot of material that was technical and I found myself glossing over whole paragraphs and pages to find the meat. The meat was there, as always, but not as much as in the Conflict of Interpretations, for instance.
