THE DANGERS OF CHRISTIAN PRACTICE: On Wayward Gifts, Characteristic Damage, and Sin
Arguing that practices are deformed in ways that are characteristic of and intrinsic to the practices themselves, Winner proposes that the register in which Christians might best think about the Eucharist, prayer, and baptism is that of "damaged gift." Christians go on with these practices because, though blighted by sin, they remain gifts from God.
