This book seeks to exorcize the spectre of the Enlightenment by drawing on H. G. Gadamer's demonstration of 'how little the traditions in which we stand are weakened' by the legacy of the Enlightenment. It then applies these insights to theology where the importance of tradition and the unity between theology and spirituality are rediscovered.

Industry Reviews

"A most learned, well-written, and provoking book, with some surprises for all."--Expository Times
"Very appealing. Louth is a superb scholar who should be a standard participant in the current 'conflict of interpretations.'"--Theological Studies
"A provocative essay which raises crucial questions about the nature of contemporary theology."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion
