Between Human and Divine is the first collection of scholarly essays published on a wide variety of contemporary (post 1980) Catholic literary works and artists. Its aim is to introduce readers to recent and emerging writers and texts in the tradition.... the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia, the air crash of a jumbo jet in Paris in 1974 and, perhaps most painful and inexplicable of all, the mudslide at Aberfan Wales on October 21, 1966 that killed 144 people, 116 of whom were children. ... In fact, the Book of Job is quoted by Fr. Brierley in his homily as he tries to make sense of the Aberfan tragedy.
