Om Praying to a French God
As a phenomenologist Lacoste is concerned with investigating the human aptitude for experience; as a theologian Lacoste is interested in humanitys potential for a relationship with the divine, what he terms the liturgical relationship.Beginning from the proposition that prayer is a theme that occurs throughout Lacostes writing, and using this proposition as a heuristic through which to view, interpret and critique his thought, this book examines Lacostes place amid both the recent theological turn in French thought and the post-war emergence of la nouvelle thologie. Drawing upon unpublished and out of print material previously only available in French, Romanian or German, the book will be of interest to scholars of philosophy, phenomenology and theology.
