This book is organised around central questions about the divine raised by Marions work: how to speak of God, how to approach God, how to experience God, how to receive God, how to believe in God, how to worship God.

Within that context it deals with the important aspects of his philosophical work: the inspiration of his writings in what he calls Descartes “white theology” and its late medieval context as well as the apophatic theology associated with Dionysius the Areopagite- his important claims about idolatrous and iconic ways of speaking of the divine- his notion of the saturated phenomenon or a phenomenology of revelation and givenness, and his extensive writings on love.Christina M.

Gschwandtner also considers Marions explicitly theological writings and establishes their relationship to his larger phenomenological oeuvre. Overall, it approaches Marions work not only as a philosophy of religion, but with specifically theological questions in mind. It hence shows how Marions extensive historical and phenomenological work can be profitable and inspiring for theology today, for both systematic questions and for concerns of spirituality, in a way that holds the theoretical and the practical together.
