The Quest for God and the Good Life: Lonergan's Theological Anthropology (Paperback)Mark T. Miller (author)
- We can order this
Mark T. Miller's approach is a theological anthropology organised into three main categories, ""progress,"" ""decline,"" and ""redemption,"" which transpose the traditional concepts of nature, sin, and grace into a contemporary social and historical context. Progress is driven by the natural human desire for God. Decline is a downward spiral of violence and suffering caused by sin's perversion of the good, natural desire. Redemption is God's gift of God's self that fulfills our natural desire and becomes the foundation for authentic human living.
Throughout this introductory text, progress, decline and redemption constitute a systematic framework for examining the central terms of Catholic theology, as well as key notions in Lonergan's theology. The book provides a firm foundation for students of Lonergan as well as anyone interested in understanding Catholic theology and applying it to ministry, education and other fields.
