The subjects of Hansen s book are interesting than his writing about them Ignatius Hopkins the martyred priest of El Salvador There s a Catholic bonhomie that fails to address real crises of faith For example Hansen s reductive essay on Hopkins he insists that he was refined through his illness and depression and came to some greater spiritual depth but I don t see Hansen giving real evidence for this In his rather tepid defense of liberation theology he carefully and dishonestly distances it from Marxism I often felt rather patronized as a reader

Ron Hansen s A Stay Against Confusion Essays On Faith Fiction attracted me with a chapter devoted to John Gardner I borrowed the book from the library and uickly polished it offHansen is one of those peculiar people commonly referred to as a devout Catholic He begins the book with a meditation on how he fell in love with the deep power of story while attending mass as a child and he concludes it with an ebullient essay on The Eucharist In between there are ruminations on stigmata various stories and films that sustain his imagination and personalities who have Made A Difference When I started the book the only essay I wanted to read was the Gardner bit But Hansen is a beguiling writer and I found myself compelled to read even those chapters which at first blush seemed of limited interestThis book is a declaration of love and devotion There are many readers who will find encouragement in Hansen s thoughtful approach to his task for those looking for an appropriate meditation to close the final week of Lent Hansen s homily on Anima Christi is just the thing Still I have to admit I find it all a little alien It seems to me this is a devotional impulse that almost takes root at a cellular level within the bloodstream If that sounds cheeky I don t mean it to I m simply at a loss to understand itIt could be that as a member of the Church my devotion is too mean Also the Catholic Church has long excelled at projecting the romance of devotion in my tradition the romance begins with apocalyptic sects and sex the wiki is a little coy on this matter and mentions only the polygamy retreats uickly into the barn and stops the door with monster of a book called The Martyr s Mirror Catholics get all those fabulous costumes we get shunned if we wear anything with a zipper In any case my religious dialog begins with a grudge and moves gradually if at all into the arena of glory laud and honorOf course it doesn t have to be that way for everyone If any of this is a curiosity to you walk over to your local library and make that reuest As for whether or not it s worth the cover price well was it not a Catholic who came up with Caveat emptor
