"This book is not only a perceptive, well informed essay on late Patristic theology, but a moving call to join in Gregory's contemplative vision--a book to nourish our spirits as well as our minds."
--Brian E. Daley, SJ, Catherine F. Huisking Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame
"Hester's thorough, imaginative, and incisive analysis enables the reader to better understand the historical and theological complexities of Gregory's thought."
--Kenneth B. Steinhauser, Professor, St. Louis University
"This work is as an excellent introduction not only to the Moralia, but also to Gregory's thought in general. . . . Hester's writing is clear and direct; his arguments are persuasive. This is an admirable first book."
--Carole Straw, Professor, Department of History Mount Holyoke College
"In this splendid treatment of Gregory's Moralia in Iob Kevin Hester displays a sixth-century reading of the book of Job which is deeply Christological , eschatological, and moral as it struggles to comprehend suffering as both redemptive and revelatory."
--Jeffrey Bingham, Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
