The Appearing of God

Jean-Yves Lacoste
Translated by Oliver O'Donovan

  • A translation of Jean-Yves Lacoste's 'La Phénoménalité de Dieu: neuf études'
  • Explores the fluid border of philosophy and theology, and follow a path leading from some classic modern philosophical discussions of experience to the treatment of leading topics in contemporary phenomenology
  • Considers the ways in which knowledge of God is approached, prepared for or avoided in some of the classic masters of the modern tradition, Kierkegaard, Husserl, and Heidegger
  • Takes up themes of contemporary importance, Anticipation, Gift, and Self-Identity, treating each of them in relation to the way time is experienced
  • Draws the themes together in an enquiry into how theology as an intellectual enterprise relates to the practice of worship
