In these essays, award-winning German novelist Martin Mosebach bears witness to the perennially "subversive" nature of full-blooded Catholicism. Despite the sins and escapades of her members, the Church still makes present in our midst an "incessant repetition of the Incarnation." This book opens our eyes and ears to this ongoing miracle.
