Chauvet: Sacramental Grace is...

I really love this book, along with Beauty of the Infinite it is my favorite theological book, though it could not be more different in many ways. Chauvet is Heidegerian and thus commits himself to a a very different metaphysical viewpoint, one that is not onto-theological. But here is a nice quote:

To theologically affirm sacramental grace is to affirm, in faith, that the risen Christ continues to take flesh in the world and in history and that God continues to come into human corporality.
