    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 22.50

    In Vigilant Faith: Passionate Agnosticism in a Secular World, Daniel Boscaljon takes up the contemporary challenges to faith by skepticism and secularism.

  • From Theology to Theological Thinkingby Jean-Yves Lacoste; Jeffrey Bloechl; W. Chris Hackett

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 29.50

    "Christian philosophy" is commonly regarded as an oxymoron, philosophy being thought incompatible with the assumptions and conclusions required by religious faith. According to this way of thinking, philosophy and theology must forever remain distinct. In From Theology to Theological Thinking, Jean-Yves Lacoste takes a different approach. Stepping... more...

  • Postmodernism and the Revolution in Religious Theoryby Carl Raschke

    Compelled to seek something more than what modern society has to offer, Robert Sibley turned to an ancient setting for help in recovering what has been lost.

  • Freud and Augustine in Dialogueby William B. Parsons

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 22.50

    "It is arguably the case," writes William Parsons, "that no two figures have had more influence on the course of Western introspective thought than Freud and Augustine." Yet it is commonly assumed that Freud and Augustine would have nothing to say to each other with regard to spirituality or mysticism, given the former's alleged antipathy to religion... more...
