It was later published as a book (part of the prestigious series Cogitatio Fidei) under the title of Le lieu du salut: Une pneumatologie d’incarnation chez Thérèse d’Avila (Editions du Cerf). He has published articles in various languages and lectured internationally.
Praise for Fr. André Brouillette
“André Brouillette’s deep training in soteriology is reflected both in his superb scholarship and in his accessibility as a teacher in the classroom. One of the rising stars of his generation.”
– Mark Massa, S.J., Boston College
“André Brouillette has developed a singular ability in reading narratives of salvation, both in the Bible and outside of it. He discerns in a unique manner how life narratives are permeated with biblical features and potentialities. The result proves to be very inspiring for readers and listeners.”
– Emmanuel Durand, OP, Dominican University College (Carleton University)
“André Brouillette, SJ, is a gifted systematic and constructive theologian whose expertise in spirituality and fundamental theology excites and inspires his students. Competent in several languages and the social sciences, his theology is devoted to imagining anew, Christian living and the church in our contemporary context of change and disruption.”
