Overview

Father Tillard's conversation in I Believe, Despite Everything, with all of his warmth, is that of the great subjects of theology, especially the Church, ecumenism, as well as some major pastoral preoccupations. He was well read and erudite as well as a passionate person. His competence allows in a free conversation for the discovery of what is essentially a profession of faith and hope. Thus, the witness of this exceptional theologian is also a marvelous lesson in theology. It is an open theology because the stakes are high: the human person, the Church, conversion, culture. It is a calm theology because it is deeply lived in faith, contemplative, grappling with God, the God whom theology does not tire to invoke -- especially in the worst times -- a God in whom theology does not cease to trust.
