Abstract:

Stanley Romaine Hopper developed a religious perspective called "theopoiesis" that embraced twentieth-century cultural revolutions in theology, poetry, philosophy, and psychology. In this long-awaited book, Hopper explores imaginative literature for religious meaning. The evocative and transformative power of the poetic makes his approach a revelatory theology that does not refer to a supernatural object, but opens the reader to divine mystery in the depths of self and world. Hopper investigates texts of poets, philosophers, theologians, and psychologists, and examines the significance of metaphors, symbols, myths, irony, paradoxes, parables, and anecdotes.
