'What is particularly exceptional about this book is the way in which Bouyer employs different disciplines and areas of knowledge to pursue the question: who is this father of Jesus Christ? Comparative religion, psychoanalysis and the Bible and tradition are all engaged with, to give a satisfying and rich answer.'
Gavin D'Costa, Theological Book Review
"reminds us once again of how much a Catholic theological culture in these islands owes to the (non-Catholic) Scottish publishing house of T&T Clark Pere Bouyer is Mircea Eliade arrayed in the Episcopal robes of St Gregory of Nyssa. Corners of a building so grandiose as to include, as this one does, myth, depth psychology, and the social sciences as well as the history of religions from Shamanism to Shinto, can surely be chipped away here and there by thinkers with other suasions to offer or by specialist scholars. Yet the overall effect of Bouyer's construction is impressive Bouyer gives us his own his own prescription for the reinvigoration of theological life."
- Irish Theological Quarterly, 2001
