In these lectures, Griffiths seeks to develop a theology of intellectual appetite. He helps us see that our desire for knowledge is all too often informed by a distorted will that seeks to be in a position of ownership over and control of that which we claim to know. By way of alternative, he draws on Augustine and others in order to sketch out a vision of knowledge as gift and a corresponding account of skills whose cultivation would enable meaningful participation in the gifts that we have been given.
