(p.263) 17 Henri Bouillard: The Freedom of Faith1

James Hanvey

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the thought of Henri Bouillard and its significance for Catholic theology before and after Vatican II. It examines Bouillard's understanding of the historical situatedness of faith and the implication this has for the hermeneutics of the church's understanding and expression of that faith. It examines Bouillard's engagement with major Protestant thinkers like Karl Barth, especially his understanding of the logic of faith and its existential and epistemological structures. It considers Bouillard's exploration of the nature of human freedom and divine presence and concludes with some observations on his importance for post‐conciliar theology.

Keywords:   Henri de Lubac, nouvelle théologie, faith, experience, analogia entis, freedom, divine presence, human existence, grace, nature, Karl Barth, Blondel
