epic“Great theology is always a kind of giant and intricate poetry, like epic or saga. It is written for those who know the tale already, the urgent messages and the dying words, and who attend to its retelling with a special alertness, because the story has a claim on them and they on it.”

— Marilynne Robinson, The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought (New York: Picador, 2005), 117.
