Faithfully Seeking Understanding provides a first-hand opportunity for English-speaking readers to encounter the thought of Johannes Kuhn (1806-1887), widely considered the greatest speculative theologian of the renowned Catholic Tübingen School. This volume presents selected essays spanning Kuhn's lengthy career. They are organized topically and edited by Grant Kaplan to give readers an approachable introduction to his thought. Despite having a significant influence on German theology and being the subject of much study in Germany, Kuhn's thought has attracted only marginal attention outside of Germany. These essays, in addition to a scholarly introduction, give evidence of the depth of Kuhn's thought and show his ongoing relevance for key fault lines in contemporary systematic and fundamental theology. The selections are taken from chapters of Kuhn's books, including his Catholic Dogmatics, and from various articles that appeared in the Tübingen quarterly, Die theologische Quartalschrift. They are arranged according to the following topics: faith and reason; revelation and the personhood of God; responses to Protestant liberalism; theological topics, including grace and freedom, theology and the university; and Catholic fundamental theology. Though diverse in subject, when read together the essays yield a complete theological vision that derives from a carefully constructed theological foundation.
