This article outlines a theology of social grace drawn from the work of Bernard Lonergan and Robert M. Doran, which provides an interlocking set of categories with which to interpret theologically the historical data of social-ecological recovery. Central categories are drawn from Lonergan’s four-point hypothesis, the scale of preference, and the structure of the human good, which are then used to suggest ways to understand the history of social-ecological recovery
