Item description for Faith as Imagination: The Contribution of William F. Lynch, S.J. by Gerald Bednar...

LynchAIs work on the Platonic analogical imagination as instrument and entry into faith gets the attention it merits. Bednar examines LynchAIs concepts in detail; the interconnectedness of faith and imagination, the role of imagination in giving new images to faith, the ironic Christic image, O the difference between imagination in drama and fantasy, the paradigm shift from scholastic to modern understanding of faith. Bednar clears the way for faith as imagination to accommodate conflicting opinions on some significant religious issues.

Reviews - What do customers think about Faith as Imagination: The Contribution of William F. Lynch, S.J.?

Magnificent.  May 11, 1999
This is a book that grew in power from chapter to chapter. Here are some quotes that I think speak for themselves. "The task of imagination is to imagine the real." "The imagination is particularly well suited to form a pathway to reality because it can keep opposites together in a thought-provoking analogy or in a metaphor packed with new insight, or in a masterfully constructed story." "Truths that are mysterious, paradoxical and ironic become integrated into a person's life not through argument, but through action. These types of truths are 'higher than reason.' Having done the truth, that person now knows it from the inside." "Imagination liberates the person from the confines of the self." "Because imagination is the power through which a person escapes from the self and becomes actively related to the world, Schelling sees imagination as a form of love." "Art is not primarily 'self-expression,' but a sort of self-identification with another. That activity not only enhances the self, it constitutes a sort of report on a reality that has come in touch with the human." "Imagination gives expression to what lies deepest within the human: the spiritual life of will and reason as they strike a harmony with universal reason and the absolute will of God. The imagination, at its most profound, seeks to give expression to that harmony with God." If you love these quotes, you'll love this book.
