How does Christian philosophy deal with phenomena on this planet? Felix Ó Murchadha believes that seeing, listening to, or in a different way sensing the area via religion calls for transcendence or pondering via glory and evening (being and meaning). through not easy a lot of Western metaphysics, Ó Murchadha exhibits how phenomenology opens new principles approximately being, and the way philosophers of "the theological turn" have addressed questions of production, incarnation, resurrection, time, love, and religion. He explores the potential of a phenomenology of Christian lifestyles and argues opposed to any uncomplicated separation of philosophy and theology or cause and religion.
