Recognizing the Gift puts twentieth-century Catholic theological conversations on nature and grace, particularly those of Henri de Lubac and Karl Rahner, into dialogue with Continental philosophy, notably the thought of Jean-Luc  Marion and Paul Ricoeur. It thus argues for a theology of nature and grace in terms of recognition of the gift, drawing out the reciprocal and political nature of recognition in opposition to those, including Marion, who would seek to avoid politics and reciprocity as a proper avenue of inquiry for theology.

The delay of the Parousia—the anticipated return of Christ—is an issue that has troubled theology since the late writings of the New Testament. This volume, arising from the Oxford Postdoctoral Colloquium on Eschatology, offers a constructive proposal on this issue in a truly interdisciplinary manner. Collaboratively written by a cohort of ecumenical scholars in systematics, historical theology, and biblical studies, the project engages in careful, critical biblical exegesis and offers an apophatic and constructive theological account of the deferral and certainty of Christ’s second coming.
