"Too often theology and spirituality proceed along parallel tracks. These richly suggestive essays show the two as integral and inseparable aspects of a theologian’s journey to God. They do so not through academic detachment, but through passionate engagement - in the conviction that what is at stake is who we are becoming before God."
Fr. Robert P. Imbelli
Associate Professor Emeritus, Boston College
"Here is a set of essays on the profound, important, and difficult topic of the relation between intimacy with Christ and the practice of theology. The writers discuss, with deep roots in the tradition, how intimacy with Christ is proper to the theological life. This important thesis is argued with great power by the collected authors from a wide variety of perspectives."
