Love the subtitle, Wos.
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

I'm only about halfway through, but it doesn't seem hard to gauge, even at this point.

It's a rather basic, primarily methodological work — obviously meant to inspire further applicational studies — which employs B16's "Hermeneutic of Reform" (i.e. of "renewal in continuity"), against flatly reductive readings of either unhinged dynamism (Progressivism) or lifeless stasism (Reactionaryism) so as to hew close to the living, organic and crucifyingly challenging interpretive process which illustrates the only possible Catholic reading strategy.

IOW, what's not to like? :D

AFAIK, de Lubac has no specific (at least, no novel) theory of development. Nothing uniquely Lubacian.

And Newman has been pretty much digested across the mainline schools. Who is seriously contesting Newman, these days? Maybe there are debates, but if so, they've certainly not been on my radar.

So based on that, I would wager that, by default, he follows Newman.

True enough, de Lubac followed Newman, and took exception to Tuyaerts and Boyer

To clarify per your question, I meant: "I'd wager that, by default, Levering follows Newman".

I'm currently reading some books related to music therapy (I'm legally on disability due to mentally overworking myself from my previous jobs and being diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and my therapist recommended this for me).

I found a good book on Openlibrary.com related to classical music and its relaxing effects on the mind, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
