Item Description...
Jean Borella explores the modernist crisis in Catholic theology, its causes and implications, and offers a solution to the fundamental dilemma of the Western Christian mind.

For three centuries, philosophers and theologians tried to preserve God's transcendence by denying continuity between the natural and the supernatural. This prolonged division allowed an illusory autonomy and an inclination towards totalitarian humanism. The writings of Henri de Lubac, referring to ancient and Eastern sources, were instrumental in dispelling this illusion.

In this remarkable book, Jean Borella lays the foundations for a theology of culture in the tradition of Newman and de Lubac, and recalls us to the adventure of the Christian vocation to holiness, re-opening 'the place in us where God awaits our waiting on him'

Reviews - What do our customers think?
From the book jacket and table of contents.  Oct 21, 1999
"For three centuries, Christian philosophers and theologians tried to preserve God's transcendence by denying any continuity between the natural and the supernatural. In so doing, they inadvertently played into the hands of those who wanted to push God to the margins, or even deny him altogether. The result was to lay the foundations of modernism, as well as secular humanism. "During the twentieth century, the writings of Henri de Lubac and others, drawing on the ancient sources of Christian tradition, were instrumental in overcoming this dualism of nature and grace and preparing the way for a new appreciation of Christian mysticism. For de Lubac, as for the ancient Christian writers, both cosmology and anthropology must be recentered on Christ, and the `natural desire for God' is understood as lying at the very heart of our human existence. "In this remarkable book-the first in English by a writer of growing importance in France-the foundations are laid of a theology of culture in the tradition of de Lubac and J.H. Newman. The modernist crisis is examined from an unusual angle, and understood as never before. The fate of the Catholic liturgy in the wake of the Second Vatican Council is examined, and the need for a recovery of the sense of the sacred becomes clear. In reaffirming the importance of symbolism and sacrament, in resisting the temptations of integralism and extreme traditionalism, Jean Borella recalls us to the adventure of becoming human, reminding us of the patristic and Orthodox teaching on deification, and helps to reopen in us `the place where God awaits our waiting on him'-the place where God's promises and our deepest desires are fulfilled beyond measure." -from the book jacket
