Man and God is the first of three major works by Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983) on the subject of theology. All three books are posthumous publications, based on lectures given by Zubiri, a famous contemporary Spanish philosopher. Man and God is divided into three parts; the first part serving as an essential introduction to the core of the work. This section, together with the introductions by translators Joaquin Redondo and Dr. Thomas B. Fowler provide the reader with the necessary preparation to enjoy the philosophical riches of this book. Here, Zubiri suggests that God is transcendent in all things; therefore, by experiencing the world man has the fundamental experience of God. Translators Redondo, Fowler, and Dr. Nelson Orringer have sought to render the original text into natural and readable English while maintaining fidelity to the original work. This translation is the product of three experts in the thought of Zubiri, with the final revision given here collaboration between Dr. Fowler and Dr. Orringer. This translation was made possible by a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Culture.

Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983), is a famous contemporary Spanish philosopher. Zubiri rethought the problems of philosophy in a very profound way and developed a radically new approach to knowing and reality, termed Sentient Intelligence. His thought is a synthesis of classical philosophy (from Aristotle to St. Thomas) and phenomenology, but goes beyond both. Zubiri's theological writings utilize this philosophical framework. Thomas Fowler is president and founder of the Xavier Zubiri Foundation of North America. He has translated two other works by Zubiri and is editor of The Xavier Zubiri Review, a journal devoted to Zubiri studies. He also serves as adjunct professor at George Mason University and his book, The Evolution Controversy, A Survey of Competing Theories was published in 2007. Nelson Orringer is a retired professor of comparative literature at the University of Connecticut, who has authored many books about Spanish literary and philosophical figures and has translated a book by Zubiri into English. He is widely respected as an expert on twentieth century Spanish authors, especially Ortega y Gassett, Unamuno, and Zubiri, among others. Joaquin Redondo is a longtime scholar and researcher of Zubiri. A native speaker of both Spanish and English, he is in a unique position to translate Zubiri's philosophical expressions, often metaphorical, into clear English. He has also translated three other works by Zubiri in addition to this book, and is preparing a fifth.
