"Holy Ground is a rare work of theology-at once liturgical, poetic, cosmological, and ethical. This culminating volume of Gordon Lathrop's trilogy focuses the Trinitarian holiness of God so as to illuminate our whole inhabited world." -Don E. Saliers, Emory University

"With refined sensibilities and learning, Holy Ground cultivates rich old ground and breaks fertile new ground." -Larry Rasmussen, Union Theological Seminary, New York City
