Endorsements for Rediscovering God’s Grand Story
“Drawing on an amazing range of poets, philosophers, and writers Roseman helps the reader recover the sight and sound to see and hear the world as suffused with the glory of God. A remarkable book by a remarkable writer who has poured his life into this book.”
—Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke University
“Roseman’s book is a masterpiece. He is excessively humble. He may be in business but he puts ‘scholars who write for other scholars’ to shame, myself included. Being this good, I would hate to see him as a professional scholar. Roseman writes well as a fresh interpreter for a popular audience, which is most of us. At once, this book is the best in art, story, philosophy, apologetics, and theology.”
-David Naugle, Distinguished University Professor, Dallas Baptist University
“Roseman’s book should take its place among the best of contemporary apologetics. Particularly helpful is his discussion of the modern (and postmodern) cultural ‘backcloth’ and why it makes the persistent ‘echos’ of God’s reality so difficult to hear in our present world. I recommend this book highly.”
—Robert Prevost, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Wingate University
“Rediscovering God’s Grand Story embodies the most powerful, and convincing form of discourse for conveying life-shaping ideas: the testimony. James Roseman is a rare modern example of a once central figure in intellectual history—the amateur scholar. Amateur in the sense of lover and scholar in the sense of one who lives comfortably and discerningly among books and ideas. If you, too, love the same and are looking for help in understanding how the world’s understanding of itself got to where it is today—and why God has been and always will be central to that understanding—this book will be a boon companion.”
—Daniel Taylor, Author of Death Comes for the Deconstructionist and Do We Not Bleed?
