Man tends to see time as a factor in life that needs no explanation and thinks that he knows what it is. But when he happens to ask questions about the nature of time and tries to define it he becomes aware of his inability to do so. The question of man's correct orientation in life is, in fact, a question of his correct orientation in time; and correct orientation in time presupposes a moving towards, and an examination of, the possibilities and perspectives afforded by time.
Time is offered to man as a context for his dealings and encounters with his neighbor and with God. Time is also to be seen as the place where the love of God is revealed. Within time man shows, or fails to show, love for his neighbor. Finally it is within time that man achieves, or fails to achieve his proper orientation within the world around him
This book includes discussion on such issues as the problem of time, space and time, Christ and time, Church and time, the transfiguration of time and liturgical time — among others.
