About the Author:

John S. Dunne (1929–2013) was the John A. O’Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame and the author of twenty books, including Circle Dance of Time (2010), Deep Rhythm and the Riddle of Eternal Life (2008), and A Vision Quest (2006), all published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

Review:

“A provocative and haunting study of the myths by which men through the ages have met the fact that they must die. The City of the Gods is a rare kind of interdisciplinary study . . . its scope and profundity mark Dunne as one of the most serious and original theologians in the country.” (Christian Century)
