    schema:description "This new study offers a serious and long-overdue examination of the unstable bifurcation between theology and secularity. Rather than understanding these two formative elements of culture to be in a constant state of opposition, the author chooses an alternative path toward their reconciliation. In this way, a constructive relationship is developed between secular and theological ideas wherein they symbiotically challenge one another in such a way as to create new and/or re-examined opportunities for thinking about God, the world, and, indeed, the self.0The book first of all embarks upon a hermeneutical reading of Meister Eckhart?s defining statement that 'Being is God' and ultimately arrives (via Kant, Hegel, Gadamer, Henry, and others) at a mystically informed understanding of God?s presence both in the world and in the 'heart and mind' of the human experience? an understanding that defies conventional categories and static cultural identities. It is an important study of the history, the present, and the future of religious thought, presenting a hopeful image of unity and love in a world that has been for too long divided by difference."@en ;
