"My plan in this book," writes Father Danielou, the eminent French theologian, "is not to record what I say of God, but what God has said of Himself… to place religions and philosophies, the Old Testament and the New, theology and mysticism, in their proper relationship with the knowledge of God." God and the Ways of Knowing is a classic work of theology and spirituality that presents a subtle and penetrating interpretation of the ways by which man comes to the knowledge of God—each form of knowledge carrying him both higher and deeper. "The great merit of this work is its comprehensiveness. If we are to talk about ways of knowing God, we have first of all to talk about the techniques, philosophical, religious, real and mystic, of knowing God. Daneilou does all this, and at many points with great acumen as well as with erudition." —Leo R. Ward, Commonweal "The book is highly recommended to all who are interested in an intelligent and reverent exposition of man's ways of knowing God." —The Critic Jean Danielou, S.J., was one of the foremost Catholic theologians of the 20th century. He was the author of numerous theological works, including The Salvation of the Nations and The Presence of God.
