Myth, Science and Theology: The Theological Journey of Jimmy Belita, C.M.
PDF Version Download
This article is a description of Jimmy Belita’s contribution to the theological field. His ground-breaking books spanning the whole of his career can be divided into four categories: the relationship between myth and science in his sacramental-liturgical studies; the role of theology in religious education; the relation between myths and theology in popular religions; and the interaction between science and theology in his evolutionary studies. Behind these this great theological oeuvre is a prolific but self-effacing theologian doing self-reflexive theology in front of so great a mystery we call God.
