This chapter gives a concise treatment of Bernard Lonergan's major philosophical breakthroughs in theological method and offers clear synopses of the primary issues at play in the ongoing application of his work. It then describes how to appropriate Lonergan's intellectual project for theological reflection, while at the same time coming to terms with the limitations of Lonergan's theory of method in theology. Critical of Lonergan's endorsement of Immanuel Kant's transcendental logic, this chapter argues that the American philosophical tradition represented by Charles Sanders Peirce provides a sounder philosophical grounding for Lonergan's theories. Elaborating on this insight into Peirce's logic the chapter extends how Lonergan's thought can be reimagined and reworked for the ongoing journey of intellectual, moral, and religious conversion that is necessary to do meaningful theology in the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   Bernard Lonergan, theology, Immanuel Kant, transcendental logic, Charles Sanders Peirce, religious conversion
