In the introduction to Insight: A Study of Human Understanding, Bernard Lonergan writes of the 'startling strangeness' that overtakes someone who really understands what the act of 'insight' is all about. The present work is about that experience in the life of Richard Liddy as he wrestled with Insight in the 1960s. Liddy was Lonergan's student in Rome during the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and in this work he recounts his encounter with Lonergan and with Insight. He includes memories of other Lonergan students as well as witnesses to the 'startling strangeness' the reading of Insight engenders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] heartfelt and engaging story. * Theological Studies, November 2008 *
...it is concrete and enriching....To state what he discovered is easy enough; to portray the discovering as it went forward over time, in a long, maieutic sequence of specific questions and answers- that is more difficult, and more valuable. The portrayal in Startling Strangeness is honest, winsome, and fascinating. * Anglican Theological Review *
