It has been said that the starting point for the study of philosophy is a childlike sense of 'awe' at the universe and at existence itself. Fr. Sweeney certainly has that sense of awe and wonder at the world and at the ultimate reality: God. This wonder and awe has led him to contemplate God's nature, more specifically, the 'infinity'of His nature. Fr. Sweeney's brilliant work on the infinity of God spans four decades and is given a brilliant explicatio in this tome. I also recommend Fr. Sweeney's AUTHENTIC METAPHYSICS IN AN AGE OF UNREALITY and his recent CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY. Essential for students and scholars of the 'philosophia perennis.'
This text brings to surface the connection between philosophy and theology. The text includes some of Father Sweeney's previously published articles including:Was Augustine a Christian or a Neoplatonist? A great read for anyone wanting to better understand the link between theology and philosophy with empirical examples from some of the greatest thinkers.
