In the National Catholic Reporter, Thomas C. Fox has written a very nice article about and interview with Sr. Elizabeth Johnson. Here's a taste of it:
Sr. Johnson, 66, is today one of Catholicism’s most highly regarded theologians. A past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, she has received numerous awards for her work.
According to Sr. Johnson, people everywhere are longing for mature theology. She finds it slow in coming.
“There is a widespread hunger, and, unfortunately, it’s a hunger that isn’t often met. Preaching needs to be reformed -- our own bishops say that.”
In part, it’s responding to this hunger that moved her to write Quest for the Living God.
“I just wanted a book out there, a simple book that people could pick up and read and munch on and feast on and have a banquet in terms of what’s going on in the theology of God,” she said.
If you're into podcasts, why not listen to Tom Fox's interview with her about Quest For The Living God?
