"These Three: The Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love is a travel companion for those on the Christian path in the contemporary world. The book does not offer obtuse methodological debates or cuddly spiritual assurances. It is not easily categorized as academic theology or popular religious spirituality. Rather, with power and grace, the book provides pathways for Christians to live in a radical relation to God, others, and the world."

"This original and illuminating treatment of the theological virtues makes it clear that faith, hope, and love are to be understood first of all not as demands but as gifts to be received. These three gifts free their recipients for truly human life, as they restore our relationships to one another and to all that is. With her sensitive exploration of Christian tradition and contemporary experience, Robinson makes 'these three'--and our deep need for them--very real."
