An exploration of eminent moral theologian Enda McDonagh's lifelong search for the mystery of God as revealed in creation and in human beings and their relationships. He reflects on a life of learning, teaching, and research, examines the work of friends and fellow travelers, and explores the radical call to communion in a globalizing world.
The search for the mystery of God as revealed in creation, in human beings and their relations, in the human processes of learning, artistic creation and political community has been a lifelong preoccupation of Enda McDonagh, one of the most eminent moral theologians of our time. In this book he draws together the fruits of fifty years of study and practice as priest and theologian. Part I of the book is a reflection on a life of learning, teaching and research, culminating in an essay which examines why the university needs theology. Part II examines the work of friends and fellow travellers, including Bernhard Haering and John Macquarrie, among others. Part III explores the radical call to communion in a globalizing world. ""The author establishes in the various writings that make up this volume the reasons for his place and role in contemporary theology.
