Publisher's Description

David L. Schindler is the foremost American participant in the Communio movement in Catholic theology. Over the last thirty-five years, his profound theological and ontological vision has led him to probe our most urgent cultural problems to their deepest metaphysical roots, comprehensively evaluating them in the light of Trinitarian faith.

The first book-length study of Schindler’s thought, Being Holy in the World explores Schindler’s Trinitarian theology, ecclesiology, anthropology, and metaphysics in the context of the encounter between Christianity and contemporary culture.

Author Bio

The Eschatology of Hans Urs von Balthasar: Being as Communio
D. C. Schindler is associate professor of philosophy at Villanova University. His books include Plato's Critique of Impure Reason: On Truth and Goodness in the Republic.

Editorial Reviews

“A giant among contemporary Christian thinkers, David Schindler has long pursued the metaphysical implications of faith’s central mysteries. At being’s heart, he finds love. It does indeed move the stars. Love’s logos of receptivity and relationality has lured him through philosophy and physics to politics and economics, theology, aesthetics and biology. Being Holy in the World displays this project in its unity and comprehensiveness. This book is not only for students of theology and philosophy but for everyone who cares about the cultural sites Schindler explores.”
— William L. Portier
University of Dayton

“This is a wonderful book, full of profound commentary on the thinking of David L. Schindler. . . . Schindler is the most remarkable American theologian of all those who have explored the communio emphases on God as love and as Trinity. Among these, contributing to this book, are Schindler’s son, David C. Schindler, Adrian J. Walker, Michael Hanby, and Fr. Antonio López. Like Schindler himself, these scholars make important contributions to our understanding of the significance of communio theology for interpreting the Christian and American experience.”
