--John Dadosky, University of Toronto
"Joseph Ogbonnaya has produced a valuable book that contributes to the stock of knowledge both for theological studies in general and Lonergan scholarship in particular. . . . By retrieving and utilizing Lonergan's philosophical anthropology in this important discourse on development, Ogbonnaya has opened up a new area of intellectual activity, an area that if further investigated and developed holds a bright future, not only for theological education, but also for sociology and politics."
--Cyril Orji, University of Dayton
"This book brings contemporary development discourse and Catholic social teachings into conversation with Lonergan's philosophical anthropology. . . . I highly commend this book, which presents a focused and well-researched application of Lonergan's work to a contemporary context of relevance."
--Thomas E. Reynolds, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto
"This book . . . touches on themes related to economics, social justice, and cultural and historical differences, with core references to Africa and to the work of Lonergan on what it means to be human, on what makes for progress, decline, and redemption in human affairs."
