L. Gregory Jones, is writing a major new text, tentatively titled "The Desire to Know God." The book grows out of Jones' involvement in the Lilly-funded Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, and will engage in explicit and extensive reflection on the "cultural, ecclesial, and theological issues involved in learning to think theologically." In particular, Jones believes that there are "distinctive practices of education in theological reflection, that education in theology reflects on practices, and that Christian theological commitments provide a distinctive, overarching account of, and context for, practices of education more generally."
