Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) remains one of philosophy of religion's most distinctive voices. While Ricoeur claimed he was a philosopher first, his religious reflections show him to be more of a theologian than he acknowledged. Using Ricoeur's own hermeneutics, Boyd Blundell argues that there is a way for explicitly Christian theology to maintain both its integrity and overall relevance. He demonstrates how the dominant pattern of detour and return found throughout Ricoeur's work provides a path to understanding the relationship between philosophy and theology. By putting Ricoeur in dialogue with current, fundamental, and longstanding debates about the role of philosophy in theology, Blundell offers a hermeneutically sensitive engagement with Ricoeur's thought from a theological perspective.
