Entering Into the Mind of Christ: The True Nature of Theology is a compilation of essays that were written to address the question: “How does spirituality supply theological study with the correct method?” Edited by Deacon James Keating, Ph. D., these essays affirm the fact that the study of theology necessarily involves spirituality.

The essays explore the definitions of “theology” and “spirituality,” recognizing that the two concepts are often defined incompletely. Furthermore, the role of faith, as well as the importance of dialogue, in the understanding and practice of theology is presented.

"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."

Paul J. Griffiths
Warren Chair of Catholic Theology, Duke Divinity School
