Download Introductory Pages and Index (381 KB)
The Dutch-born Father Frans Jozef van Beeck has been a Jesuit for nearly 60 years. A respected theologian and teacher, he has written several books on ecclesiology and on the Catholic Church’s relationship with Judaism. Father van Beeck’s multi-volume project, God Encountered: A Contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology, is still a work in progress. Driven Under the Influence is a provocative sampling of his unpublished ideas over a 30-year period. The essays chosen here suggest the breadth and depth of his scholarly interests. They range from fundamental issues such as Christology and Trinitarian theology to encounters with non-Christians, especially Jews, to thorny contemporary issues such as the ordination of women, to very personal reflections on literature and faith. It is a collection sure to stimulate and inspire.
