Hans Gustafson proposes pansacramentalism as holding potential for finding the divine in all things and all things in the divine, which carries significant inherent interreligious implications-especially for doing theology. Presupposing the challenge of doing theology divorced from spirituality (lived religious experience), he presents pansacramentalism as a bridge between the two. In so doing, Gustafson offers a history of spirituality and sketches the foundations of a classical approach to sacramentality (through Aquinas) and a contemporary approach to the same (through Rahner and Chauvet). By presenting three fascinating case studies, this book offers particular instances of sacramentality in lived religious experience (i.e. sacramental spirituality). These case studies draw on Thomas Merton and place, Nicholas Black Elk and multiple religious identity, and Fyodor Dostoevsky and Wendell Berry and literature. The book culminates by a) constructing a philosophy of sacramental mediation and criteriology of sacrament, b) engaging panentheism and the suffering of God and world, and c) proposing "panentheistic pansacramentalism" as a new model for understanding the divine-world relationship set in the context of a pansacramental theology of religious pluralism. Finally, a method for doing theology interreligiously is offered based on the overall content of the book and within the context of the interdisciplinary field of interreligious studies.

About the Author:

Hans S. Gustafson is the associate director of the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning at the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) and the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University (Minnesota) where he teaches in the theology departments.

Review:

  • "To the religious world that has long suffered the split of theology and spirituality, Gustafson offers a very original and very persuasive attempt to reunite the two in terms of a pansacramental approach, a liturgical mediation between the two, and presents, in the process, a wealth of insights from Aquinas, Rahner, Chauvet, Merton, Nicholas Black Elk, Dostoevsky, and Wendell Berry. It enables us to 'find God in all things' in a way open to panentheistic sensibility and religious pluralism. I heartily recommend the book." --Anselm K. Min, Professor of Religion, Department of Religion, Claremont Graduate University
  • "Enough authors have bemoaned the death of theology; it's time now to midwife her rebirth. In this tour de force, Gustafson unleashes the deeper meanings of symbol and sacrament to reunite theological reflection and spiritual living. Deeply Christian and deeply interreligious, his pansacramentalism destabilizes traditional dichotomies and radically expands the realm of the sacred. A must-read for all who are interested in the future of constructive theology." --Philip Clayton, author of Transforming Christian Theology
  • "The theological vistas opened by twentieth-century developments in the concept of sacramentality have still only begun to be explored. Given that, as Hans Gustafson aptly avers, sacramentality entails the meeting of human particularity (spirituality) and divine universality (theology), each new generation must start afresh, critically building on prior scholarship while bringing new human resources to bear. Gustafson displays intellect, passion, and reverence for traditions in this new comprehensive, interdisciplinary contribution." --Bruce T. Morrill, SJ, Vanderbilt University
  • "Gustafson addresses two fundamental though often unrelated questions. What constitutes an appropriate relationship between theology and spirituality? And, how does one do theology with appropriate attention to interreligious experience?  If one holds a sound correlation between spirituality and interreligious experience, a point the author develops rather clearly, then the two questions have an interrelated answer." --Francis Berna, Ph.D., La Salle University (published on CatholicBooksReview.org)
