A Taste of God

On Spirituality and Reframing Foundational Theology

By Toine van den Hoogen

In the course of the 20th century, a new worldview has arisen in Western society and culture that is defined in this book as "immanent mysticism." Several major philosophers are sensitive to such a sense of immanent mysticism. The same sensitivity is noticeable in the works of poets, painters, and other artists. It expresses the desire for transforming the way to meaningful living. A Taste of God shows that theological research programs are innovated by insights from aesthetics and studies of spirituality. The book's research indicates that contemporary Western culture requires a reframing of foundational theology. (Series: Nijmegen Studies in Theology - Vol. 3)
