This is the definitive introduction to Henri de Lubac's spiritual interpretation of Scripture. Hollon addresses neglected aspects of de Lubac's theological renewal by examining the centrality and indispensability of spiritual exegesis in his work. In addition to exploring the historical and ecclesiastical context within which he worked, this book brings de Lubac into critical engagement with the more recent theological movements of postliberalism and radical orthodoxy.

About the Author:

Bryan C. Hollon is Assistant Professor of Theology at the Malone College School of Theology in Canton.

Review:

Theology May/June 2011 ...there is some very valuable and incisive insight throughout the thesis...a welcome volumeA" "Hollon (theology, Malone College, Ohio) has revised his 2006 doctoral dissertation at Baylor University examining the thinking of French Jesuit theologian de Lubac (1896-1991). He focuses on the centrality of his retrieval of patristic and medieval exegesis within the context of his broader efforts to inspire a more faithful and robust Catholic engagement with the secular world. Among the topics are atheist humanism and neoscholasticism, the political implications of a sacramental ecclesiology, post-liberalism and radical orthodoxy, and political witness and the future of spiritual exegesis." Book News Inc, Reference - Research Book News - October 2011 'In this book, Hollon addresses an often neglected dimension of de Lubac's theological renewal ... the current work brings de Lubac into a critical engagement with the more recent theological movements of postliberalism and Radical Orthodoxy in order to demonstrate the enduring significance of his theological vision.' Listing only in Theological Book Review Vol. 23, No. 2, 2011. 'Bryan Hollon's generously written text describes and approves de Lubac's advocacy for the continuing vitality of 'spiritual exegesis', which is identified by these volumes as an integral feature of patristic and medieval interpretation that subsequent theology (particularly since the time of Leo) has been prone to neglect. [ - ] The most engaging chapters in this book describe in colourful detail the intellectual background of de Lubac's opposition to neoscholasticism, an opposition inextricable from the political animus which motivated his writing. Chapter 3, in particular, contains a brilliant precis of de Lubac's analysis of changing understanding of the Eucharist (in Corpus Mysticum he identifies a vital but not easily explicable turning point in the twelfth century) whereby the mystical becomes less real, and is cordoned off in time and space. [ - ] As a contribution to the study of de Lubac's achievement and influence the book stands nonetheless as an important addition.' Gavin McCormick, in: The Way, April 2012."Bryan Hollon (Malone College, Ohio) confesses right from the start that his book began as a dissertation. He did a good job in turning it into a readable book [ - ] Hollon takes a lot of pages to show that de Lubac's project is superior to the solution offered by postliberal theologians (like Lindbeck) and by radical orthodoxy theologians (like Milbank). Hollon has written an interesting monograph on de Lubac's theology. Its merit consists in making very clear what really is at stake." Walter Van Herck in Bijdragen, International Journal in Philosophy and Theology 72 (4), 2011. 'This book shows how the strength of Lubac's theology is appreciated in the North American context, and it is not excessive to assert that the author uses it as a bulwark against the approach of the Radical Orthodoxy, considered as "ethereal" by the latter.' Philippe Molac in Etudes Theologiques et Religieuses, 87e annee, 2012/3.
