Overview

V. Virom Coppola's writing is delicious. His thinking is vigorous. He is an authentic artist-intellectual on the verge of creating a wonderful new approach in the field of philosophy and theology.

Coppola's A Human Venture is a new conversation-beyond postmodern-about a human spirituality based on existence alone, and the possibilities of a different "God Talk" coming out of that.

The study he produces on the profound issues of "presence" and a grounded-minimal certainty, including the study's implications for a contemporary spirituality that is both secular and sacred, is truly remarkable.

Coppola is able plausibly, engagingly, and successfully to combine his two voices as an artist and as a philosopher, and in the process lead into this wonderful new approach in the field of philosophy and theology both. It is a venture into life's root-realities that is truly important to our contemporary dialogue and which it truly needs.
