A Grotesque in the Garden (2nd Edition)

Hud Hudson, Michael Rea

Paperback 2020-06-23

Publisher Description

:After several millennia living as a lone sentinel in the Garden of Eden, the angel Tesque is contemplating leaving his post in rebellion against God. Meanwhile, in another time and place, a professor of mathematics isolates herself in remote Iceland as she finds herself increasingly at odds with society. The connection between these two characters? A letter, a sentient dog, and a deep-seated resistance to the demands of love.

A Grotesque in the Garden is a philosophical tale that addresses some of theology's thorniest problems, including the questions of divinely permitted evil, divine hiddenness, and divine deception, couching them in narrative form for greater accessibility to students and general readers. While Hudson's story ultimately vindicates the virtue of obedience to God, it never shies away from critiques of troublesome theological positions.

This second edition contains an appendix with commentary, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading.
