Simone Weil and George P. Grant were among the 20th century’s top political theologians.
Weil, a philosopher-activist-mystic from France, was the Christian mystic who refused to join the Church but nevertheless, influenced the Vatican II popes with her radical openness.
George Grant, one of Canada’s top three thinkers, once said that next to the four Gospels, Weil was his highest authority.
This book is a series of essays in political theology, exploring some of their key themes and how their work inter-relates.
This book explores in depth, for the first time, how their ‘theology of consent’ informs their political philosophy and a public ethic of the Cross.
