John S. Dunne
Time and Myth analyzes man’s confrontation with the inevitability of death in the cultural, personal, and religious spheres, viewing each as a particular kind of myth shaped by the impact of time. With penetrating simplicity, the author poses the timeless dilemma of the human condition and seeks to resolve it through stories of adventures, journeys, and voyages inspired by man’s encounter with death; stories of childhood, youth, manhood, and age; and, finally, stories of God and of man wrestling with God and the unknown.
“Calls us to ponder the depths of our lives where our souls cry out to us for recognition and where we wrestle with God for the precious grace of meaning. Dunne is a masterful guide to the inner life, which is the heart of all life-and death.” — The Christian Century
