Succeeding chapters offer a biographical overview of Lonergans intellectual development and his interest in articulating how we are called to collaborate with Gods plan to redeem history.

The author also suggests that there are two reasons why many students of Lonergans thought are not aware of this social concern. First, early in his career Lonergan made a strategic decision to address foundational questions in philosophy and theological method that constituted what he understood to be a withdrawal from practicality for the sake of practicality.

This decision would lead him to write two books that would make him famous, Insight: A study of Human Understanding (1957) and Method in Theology (1975), but in which his social concern is not immediately evident. Second, by the end of Lonergans life his exploration of foundational reflection and to make explicit how it should be applied to issues of social concern.

The author concentrates on Dorans Theology and Dialectics of History (1990) and notes how Doran enters into a nuanced engagement with theologies of liberation of Latin America, offers an innovative explanation of an option for the poor- and explains hoe the situation should be a source of systematic theology. The final chapter offers examples of Dorans theological method being applied in different ways, including by the author when he was pastor of a poor parish in Nairobi. The book concludes with comments on convergences between the thought of Lonergan, Doran, and Pope Francis.
