“The first Christmas was the time in history when God began announcing His mastery of irony . . . The great day of resurrection, the eschatological climax, will be what Tolkien called eucatastrophe, and will be literary catharsis writ large, although large is far too small a word for it . . . In worshiping Christ, in worshiping the Word, Christians are worshiping God’s irony” (God Rest Ye Merry, pp. 17-19).
