Considering Transcendence, the book

In Considering Transcendence: Elements of a Philosophical Theology (Indiana University Press, January 2009), De Nys uses a philosophical approach to religion to show the importance of diversity and knowledge within religious practices and how acquiring truth, knowledge, and discourse can help one achieve a higher understanding of the religious world. The book not only emphasizes the importance of straying from materialism, but also instructs the reader to embrace a world of self-awareness through the breakdown of religious expression, discourse, and human interaction.
