The six-volume Christian Approaches to Contemporary Thinking Collection interacts with Western and Eastern philosophies, and shows the potential for theology beyond these intellectual paradigms. The included titles, while grappling with divergent issues, betray their dissatisfaction with the philosophical kernel that imbues their respective topics. The result is a collection that looks past the limited and sometimes intellectually stagnant nature of modern philosophy. Topics include the possibility of free will in Heaven, a Christian conception of suffering versus a modernist view, converting from Buddhism to Catholicism, recovering the sense of the sacred, wisdom in the contemporary world, and more. Also included is Literary Encounters with the Reign of God, an assemblage of essays that apply the latest in literary criticism to the Scriptures.
