By Nigel Zimmermann,Brice de Malherbe
"Zimmermann's paintings uncovers and articulately discloses moments of honest discussion among influential figures of twentieth-century philosophical inspiration: John Paul II and Emmanuel Levinas. those moments are exploited for what they offer to a modern theology of the physique, with out in anyway ignoring issues of important difference."
--Michael Purcell, (1956-2013), Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology, collage of Edinburgh
"Karol Wojtyla and Emmanuel Levinas, evidently of the good thinkers of the 20 th century, each one profoundly unique and deeply immersed in his personal exact culture, have been but in a position to meet in fruitful dialog on important questions about human nature and future, as Nigel Zimmermann exhibits during this lucidly and skillfully argued account."
--Fergus Kerr, Honorary Fellow, institution of Divinity, college of Edinburgh
"Facing the Other . . . attracts out the importance of the adaptation among a non secular culture whose God is completely different, and the Christian declare that God turned incarnate. alongside the way in which, Zimmermann deals the reader a 'theology of the physique for grown-ups' as he explains the centrality of the nuptial secret and its Trinitarian foundations within the considered Wojtyła/John Paul II. The paintings is fantastically crafted."
--Tracey Rowland, Dean and everlasting Fellow in Political Philosophy and Continental Theology, John Paul II Institute, Melbourne, Australia
