"Diogenes AllenÂ's Theology for a Troubled Believer is one of the richest expressions of theology in years. Few are capable of integrating scholarly and spiritual depth in a single volume as Allen has done here. He has effortlessly and coherently blended together classic philosophy and literature, Holy Scriptures, and the historic witness of the saints to illustrate and uncover central themes of Christian doctrine. We receive here a rare gift from one of our leading theolo-gians today" W. Mark Richardson, Professor of Systematic Theology General Theological Semi-nary, New York
About the Author

The small font might discourage some but it is very readable once one sits down to read it.

I don't believe we ever approached a chapter where we didn't find Allen's thoughts profound. I know I don't have another book where my hilighting and marginalia are as profuse. There are literally points to reflection on almost every page. This is my first introduction to Allen though some of our assistant Priests indicate he is well regarded in seminary. I certainly will have to further pursue his writings.
So, why such high praise? It's my belief that most folks reading Theology at this level aren't so set in their ways that they're not willing to examine and consider things beyond just their literal value, and Allen here provides us a way of doing so. Truly, if we already had all the answers why would we continue pursuing further knowledge? Well done, Sir.
