Christ’s Human Knowledge: A Conversation with Lonergan and Balthasar

The article explores the contribution of Balthasar and Lonergan to a contemporary understanding of Christ’s human knowledge. It argues methodologically that Lonergan’s account of Christ’s human knowledge, by its use of technical terms and a carefully worked out analogy from human knowing, represents an advance on Balthasar’s often fluid position. While sympathetic to the notion of systematic theology as primarily an explanatory discipline, the article suggests several openings where more dramatically oriented categories might complement such an approach.
