  • Lonergan, Hermeneutics, & Theological Methodby Donna Teevan

    Marquette University Press 2005; US$ 27.00

    This book argues that Bernard Lonergan's transcendental method offers an approach to theology that is in some sense hermeneutical.

    For well over a century the Catholic Church has articulated clear positions on many issues of public concern, particularly economics, capital punishment, foreign affairs, sexual morality, and abortion.
