This collection of essays by eleven noted scholars continues the response to Pope John Paul II's encyclical Fides et ratio. Although that letter has implications for a variety of disciplines and concerns across the life of the church, at its core is a crucial matter that calls for the most demanding, forthright, and generous theological and philosophical reflection.

Redeeming Truth has as its overarching theme the redemption of truth looked at philosophically and theologically. This collection is notable in that it embraces a variety of approaches to its theme, from traditional forays to those that engage postmodernism and those that consider feminist theology. As many of the essays respond directly to other contributions, the volume reflects the vigor of the debate.
"This edited collection continues a rich and provocative series, "Faith in Reason: Philosophical Enquiries," edited by two highly intelligent and articulate British theologians, Susan Frank Parsons and Laurence Paul Hemming. Their concern is to explore all that follows from the encyclical Fides et Ratio (1998), and they are surely right to note its continuing importance for the study of philosophy and theology." —Kevin Hart, Edwin B. Kyle Professor of Christian Studies, University of Virginia
Susan Frank Parsons is editor of Studies in Christian Ethics and co-editor of the Faith in Reason series.Laurence Paul Hemming is dean of research at Heythrop College, University of London, and co-editor of the Faith in Reason series.

Editorial Reviews

“The vigorous affirmation of the ability of human reason to reach the truth about God that is defended in Pope John Paul II’s encyclical Fides et ratio has provoked reactions of considerable variety in the philosophical and theological community. The present collection of essays reflects that range of responses, from deep appreciation to respectful disagreement. In short, the editors of this volume are to be commended for trying to bring about dialogue on the important topic of faith and reason.” —American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly
