The twentieth century witnessed considerable debate over the question of the possibility of a "Christian philosophy." Two major figures of that revival were Étienne Gilson and Bernard Lonergan, both of whom read Aquinas in quite different ways on key questions. Nonetheless, this work brings these two authors into conversation. Debates continue in the twenty-first century, but the context has shifted, with Radical Orthodoxy and new atheism standing at opposite ends on the relationship between philosophy and theology. This work will demonstrate how the two thinkers, Gilson and Lonergan, may still contribute to a better understanding of this relationship and so shed light on contemporary issues.

The main contention of this book is that Kierkegaard’s apophaticism is an ethical-religious difficulty, concerning itself with the "whylessness" of existence. This is a theme that Kierkegaard inherits from the philosophical and theological traditions stemming from Meister Eckhart.

The book examines Kierkegaard’s apophaticism with reference to five themes: indirect communication, God, faith, hope, and love. Across these themes, the aim is to lend voice to "the unruly energy of the unsayable" and, in doing so, let Kierkegaard’s theological, spiritual, and philosophical provocation remain a living one for us today.

Brian Davies’s historical introduction of Aquinas and his continuing influence on the world today works through key questions associated with the historical figure such as, "Who was Aquinas?" "What were his key ideas?" and "What values were connected with him during his life?"
