8vo - 23 x 15 cm.; (10) - 340 pp. Red cloth over boards with white lettering on the spine. "Gratitude . . . examines changing conceptions of gratitude from Homer to the present. In so doing, Peter J. Leithart highlights the profound cultural impact of early Christian 'ingratitude', the release of human kind from the bonds of social and political reciprocity by a benevolent God who gave - and who contuinues to give - graciously". Sixty-nine pages of notes, a 30 page bibliography, a 3 page Scripture index, a 2 and a bit page index of authors and a 5 page index of subjects. The book appears to have been used very little if at all.
