David Tracy is arguably the most influential Roman Catholic theologian writing in English of the past fifty years, both internationally and beyond confessional borders. His generous and ever-expanding conversations (says contributor Willemien Otten) 'make the future of theology now'. Tracy himself says that they lead him, like Dante, to 'the love that moves the sun and the other stars'. Tracy's most famous book, The Analogical Imagination, is now over four decades old. Yet, in two volumes of his essays published in 2020, Tracy emphasises the ground-breaking new work that he did in the 2010s. His mature theological and cultural vision is in need of fresh assessment, which this book provides. An international cohort of experts introduces the core themes of Tracy's thought, critically exploring their relevance for theology today. Tracy offers a short response of his own, as well as the edited text of a previously unpublished and recent lecture.
