The essays in this book contextualize religion within a variety of cultural transformations. The methodological proposals of theologian and philosopher Bernard Lonergan, S.J. provide the inspiration and framework for these studies; and each makes its own distinct contribution beyond Lonergan's original work. Representing a variety of disciplines, the book covers the following topics: political theology, epistemology and the social sciences, theological method, foundations of metaphysics and philosophy with reference to Whitehead and Peirce, the historical character of philosophy, the problem of evil, intentionality analysis and the trinity, and the imaginative dimensions of theological discourse. The product of scholarly collaboration over several years, these essays provide insightful and current reflection on the ways religion can be understood, assessed, and appropriated in today's world.
