Jim Kanaris provides a comprehensive understanding of esteemed theologian Bernard Lonerganís philosophy of religion and a crucial means of identifying precisely the points of contact between Lonerganís thoughts on God and religion and the issues presently discussed by philosophers of religion. Defining Lonerganís philosophy of religion presents a challenge because he does not use the term as it is generally understood. Rather, Lonergan addresses these issues under the guise of philosophy of God or natural theology, understands the role of religious experience idiosyncratically, and allows this concept to play various roles in his thought. The dynamics of these various components, their interrelationships, and their function from early to late development are fleshed out in this work.
