Not Everything is Grace
Preface SINCE THIS DISSERTATION’S completion in 2008 several new studies have im- proved the theological literature on pure nature. Articles and a second edition of Lawrence Feingold’s work aside, Steven A. Long’s Natura Pura (New York: Fordham University Press, 2010) must be acknowledged as an exceptionally clear and helpful work. Jürgen Mettepenningen has offered an interesting reading of 20th-century Catholic theology in his Nouvelle Théologie—New Theolo- gy (London: T&T Clark, 2010), one touching on some of the same points cov- ered here, albeit from a markedly different perspective. Among new studies of Jansenism and of early modern French religious and intellectual history are Joseph Bergin’s Church, Society and Religious Change in France (New Haven & London: Yale University Press, 2009), John J. Conley’s Adoration and Annihila- tion (Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, 2009), and Brian E. Strayer’s Suffering Saints (Brighton, SXE & Portland, OR: Sussex Academic Press, 2008). These are all very valuable to theologians, as is Eric Nelson’s The Jesuits and the Monarchy (Aldershot, HAM: Ashgate, 2005), a volume I unfor- tunately missed during my research. To avoid boring the reader with a more comprehensive list of personal and professional acknowledgements, I thank only God, the Order of Friars Preachers, and the exemplary theologians who were my supervisors at the Aus- tralian Catholic University, Anthony J. Kelly, CSsR, and Anne Hunt.
