Evo Devo—Evolutionary Developmental Biology—is the new science that has finally cracked open the box. Within the pages of his rich and riveting book, Sean B. Carroll explains how we are discovering that complex life is ironically much simpler than anyone ever expected.

The claim has been made that we are gripped today in an "aesthetic crisis" with considerable theological ramifications. Aesthetics, which has existed since the first human heart was moved by the influence of the beautiful, has played a major role, both implicit and explicit, in theological reflection. In The Community of the Beautiful Alejandro Garca-Rivera draws from the North American philosophical tradition and Hispanic theological thought to propose a new aesthetic principle: a redemptive building of the community of the beautiful. The Community of the Beautiful focuses on the premise that religion and beauty go together. Yet today hundreds of theological treatises continue to speak solely of the ?truth? of their claims. The Community of the Beautiful addresses this silence with a proposal about the relationship between God and the beautiful. It asks the question: How can the finite human creature name the nameless, perceive the imperceptible, make visible the invisible? The answer is what Hans Urs von Balthasar called a theological aesthetics. The Community of the Beautiful is not simply an analysis of Balthasar?s theology; there exists a more personal and concrete reason for a reconsideration of the connection between God and the beautiful. The experience of a particular living ecclesial tradition, the Latin Church of the Americas, may be a guide to a world that lost its confidence in the religious dimensions of the beautiful. Garca-Rivera recasts the question of theological aesthetics posed above in light of the religious experience of the Latin Church of the Americas so that the question becomes: What moves the human heart? To answer that question, Garca-Rivera draws on a long-ignored philosophical tradition. The philosophical semiotics of Charles Peirce and Josiah Royce enter into dialogue with the theological aesthetics of Hans Urs von Balthasar to describe the traditional transcendentals, the True and the Good, as communities. The final transcendental, the beautiful, enters into conversation with the semiotic aesthetics of Jan Mukarovsky and the religious experience of the Latin American Church to become the dazzling vision of the community of the beautiful, God?s community. Chapters are "Pied Beauty," "A Different Beauty," "Seeing the Form," "The Community of the True," "The Community of the Good," "The Community of the Beautiful," and "Lifting up the Lowly."?. . . a masterful interpretation of U.S. Hispanic popular Catholicism as an expression of a theological aesthetics. . .? Journal of Hispanic/Latino Theology?The Community of the Beautiful is itself an imaginative tour de force, deserving a wide readership.? William R. O?Neill, S.J. Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union ?This work fulfills the considerable promise theology from a Hispanic perspective holds for all the Church. No one interested in the renewal of Christian thought should fail to read this important book.? Don. H. Compier Church Divinity School of the Pacific/Graduate Theological Union?A long overdue breakthrough in theology?a beautiful contribution toward a truly Pan-American theology of the next millenium . . . definitely one of the greatest intellectual-artistic masterpieces. . . . ? Rev. Virgilio Elizondo Mexican American Cultural Center?This book is a major achievement. It brings together streams of thought usually not considered compatible with one another to create a stunning conversation about theological aesthetics. Written in a clear and accessible prose, it deserves to be read by a wide audience of people interested in aesthetics, American pragmatism, the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Hispanic/Latino theology. Garca-Rivera has advanced the discussion on all these fronts.? Robert J. Schreiter Catholic Theological Union?With the publication of The Community of the Beautiful, professor Garca-Rivera joins the ranks of major theologians in the United States; and in the true spirit of mestizaje, his work not only endows Hispanic-American theology with new depth of insight, but it also enriches theologically the entire Church. It simultaneously advances both Hispanic American and Euro-American theology by setting those two cultural and theological traditions into a remarkably creative and speculative dialogue.? Donald L. Gelpi, S.J. The Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley

The book is about the goodness of God in all situations. It examines how we expect great things from God without wanting to give Him the praise that He deserves. It postulates that the law of reciprocity demands that as God is dutifully faithful to us so must we also be dutifully faithful to God. It explains that, in as much as our great expectations are in order, we should, however, not withdraw our worship of God when the anticipated blessings and miracles are not forthcoming. Our hope, the book argues, must be firmly cemented in this God no matter what we are passing through. This is so because our God is 'the Hope of the hopeless' and 'the Help of the helpless'. The book also enjoins us to worship God without any strings attached in poverty as in prosperity, in lack as in plenty, in sickness as in good health, in shame as in fame, in failures as in successes, for better or worse and that, under no circumstance should God be relegated. This is against the backdrop that He, forever, remains unchanging, unchangeable and unchallengeable. The seven-chapter book gives 35 tips on praising God. It endeavours to disseminate the message that 'God is beautiful for all situations'. The book postulates that when you put absolute trust and hope in God, He will, among other things, make you to live to your potential; release unto you extraordinary good success; give you ultimate breakthrough; endue you with power from above; give you emotional stability; turn you into a charismatic personality and bless you with positive emotion and positive life. The book is also laced with words of wisdom and inspiration from renowned writers on every page. At the end of each chapter are also practical exercises that are designed to enliven the spirit of the reader. I am cock-sure that reading this book will give you a new experience that you will not forget in a hurry.

Shame, Kathryn Bond Stockton argues in Beautiful Bottom, Beautiful Shame, has often been a meeting place for the signs “black” and “queer” and for black and queer people—overlapping groups who have been publicly marked as degraded and debased. But when and why have certain forms of shame been embraced by blacks and queers? How does debasement foster attractions? How is it used for aesthetic delight? What does it offer for projects of sorrow and ways of creative historical knowing? How and why is it central to camp? Stockton engages the domains of African American studies, queer theory, psychoanalysis, film theory, photography, semiotics, and gender studies. She brings together thinkers rarely, if ever, read together in a single study—James Baldwin, Radclyffe Hall, Jean Genet, Toni Morrison, Robert Mapplethorpe, Eldridge Cleaver, Todd Haynes, Norman Mailer, Leslie Feinberg, David Fincher, and Quentin Tarantino—and reads them with and against major theorists, including Georges Bataille, Sigmund Freud, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Jacques Lacan, Roland Barthes, and Leo Bersani. Stockton asserts that there is no clear, mirrored relation between the terms “black” and “queer”; rather, seemingly definitive associations attached to each are often taken up or crossed through by the other. Stockton explores dramatic switchpoints between these terms: the stigmatized “skin” of some queers’ clothes, the description of blacks as an “economic bottom,” the visual force of interracial homosexual rape, the complicated logic of so-called same-sex miscegenation, and the ways in which a famous depiction of slavery (namely, Morrison’s Beloved) seems bound up with depictions of AIDS. All of the thinkers Stockton considers scrutinize the social nature of shame as they examine the structures that make debasements possible, bearable, pleasurable, and creative, even in their darkness.
