Lonergan scholar Frederick Crowe once noted that the topic of Bernard Lonergan and liberation theology can seem like Melchizedek, that is, without either contextual father or mother. The same, of course, goes for Lonergan and the Preferential Option for the Poor. J. B. Metz once criticized Karl Rahner's transcendental turn for sidestepping the messiness of human history, or as he famously put it ""winning the race without running it."" Can the same be said of Lonergan? Is Lonergan's work irrelevant to those who are committed to the Option for the Poor? This book argues that Lonergan's work offers a highly cogent and powerful method for integrating the Option for the Poor into systematic theology. Focusing on Lonergan's understanding of conversion and renowned Lonergan scholar Robert Doran's theology of history, this book begins to unpack the chief issues involved and demonstrates the congruence of Lonergan's thought with many of liberation theology's particularly Jon Sobrino and Gustavo Gutierrez's chief insights into the nature and significance of the Preferential Option for the Poor.
