GodIsNotNiceGod Is Not Nice

Ulrich L. Lehner

Ulrich L. Lehner reintroduces Christians to the true God—not the polite, easy-going, divine therapist who doesn’t ask much of us, but the Almighty God who is unpredictable, awe-inspiring, and demands our entire lives. 

Stripping away the niceties with a sling blade, Lehner shows that God is more strange and beautiful than we imagine, and wants to know and transform us in the most intimate way.

TheErosOfTheHumanSpiritThe Eros of the Human Spirit: The Writing of Bernard Lonergan, SJ

Elizabeth J. Snedden

Both the desire to know and the desire to love can be observed and understood, affirmed for what they really are, and then gradually appropriated, making possible a fuller human development and life more abundant in community. This discovery was made progressively by Bernard Lonergan in his life and work as a philosopher and methodological theologian.

It is possible to trace this viewpoint in his writings, where he thematizes self-appropriation and presents it pedagogically in Insight: A Study of Human Understanding. Self-appropriation is heightened to reach the existential level by Method in Theology, where Lonergan makes religious conversion-complete being-in-love with God as a gift of grace -foundational for the theological enterprise. The openness to truth and goodness which comes with this redemptive gift enlarges human horizons and heals faltering achievement so that we can more consistently live out of the desire we are.

MothersOfFaithMothers of Faith: Motherhood in the Christian Tradition

Wilfred M. Sumani, SJ

A Malawi-born Jesuit priest, Sumani approaches a broad definition of motherhood in the Christian faith tra­dition. Through both his own personal con­text as well as scholarly exegesis he focuses on many mother figures throughout the long narrative of Christianity including Mary, Elizabeth, Saints Felicitas and Perpetua, and even con­temporary figures like Dorothy Day and Mother Teresa.

He stresses that through the insights culled from the experiences of motherhood, one can deepen one’s under­standing of the workings of God in the world.
