"Untimely Christianity offers an acutely discerning reflection on the conscience-searing language of Jesus, and the startling otherness of the words of biblical poetry from the Psalms, Prophets, and sayings of Christ." --David Lyle Jeffrey, author of Scripture and the English Poetic Imagination

"Michael Edwards reminds us that it is dangerous to read the Bible. His piercingly beautiful essay restores the surprising strangeness of the text. Christians will find their faith made startlingly strange, while nonbelievers will be beguiled by this elegant, nonpietistic presentation of the compelling nature of faith." --Alison Grant Milbank, author of God and the Gothic

"If you want to know how to hear the Bible, read this book." --Kevin Hart, author of Barefoot: Poems

"Edwards's book challenges us to embark upon a more authentic search for the truth about our humanity and our plight in this world through a fresh encounter with the Bible." --John P. Hittinger, author of The Vocation of a Catholic Philosopher
