The Logic of the Spirit in Human Thought and Experience
Exploring the Vision of James E. Loder Jr.
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"In my opinion, James Loder is one of the most creative theological minds of the last one hundred years. Unfortunately, because his genius was so deep, few have been willing to swim to the depth needed to engage his work. Dana Wright and his contributors have given us, in this book, a kind of vessel that promises exciting voyage into the deep waters of Loder's thought. Every chapter is a treasure for pastors and practical theologians."
--Andrew Root, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN
"This book is a superb expression of the enduring relevance and ramifications of James E. Loder's creative work in practical theology. The editors and writers succeed in making Loder's unique contribution more widely accessible while demonstrating its fruitfulness from international and multidisciplinary perspectives. A timely gift for all those interested in human formation and transformation in light of the 'logic of the Spirit!'"
--Daniel S. Schipani, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, IN
"Read this book because Jesus's admonition that we all need to become like a child has been under-researched and James Loder's multidisciplinary work on theology, science, and spirit has been underutilized. This book remedies both while going beyond Loder's developed thought in some critical aspects, asking questions that will send readers in new directions, not with a map but with a dare to chart new territory."
