Product Description

This study is an introduction to Catholic theology designed both for the theological student and for the general reader willing to make a certain effort. After introducingthe idea of theology and the virtues desirable in the budding theologian, the bulk of the book falls into five sections: 1. the role of philosophy in theology, 2. the use of the Bible in theology, 3. the resources of tradition for theology, 4. two "aids to discernment in theology"- experience, and the Church's magisterium, 5. a short history of Catholictheology from the New Testament to the present day. The conclusion considers the features of pluralism and unity which should typify Catholic theology as a whole and suggests how unity may avoid becoming uniformity without pluralism falling into anarchy.

Publisher's Description

An exemplary summary of the state of Catholic theology and what appears to be its future.

This historical treatment of Catholic theology looks not to the content of that theology but rather to the form in which that content is contained and how it is expressed. Faithful to Catholic teaching yet critical, discerning yet impartial, Nichols offers this introduction to dogmatic theology, with the firm belief that dogmatics are the center of theology, and that any theological discipline which cuts itself off from these heartlands does so at its own peril. For it is in dogmatics that theology is in touch with the heart of revelation, and only by virtue of the quality of its contact with that revelation is thinking Christian at all.

Though comprehensive and far-reaching, this work is not beyond the understanding of people just commencing a study of theology. It makes an excellent text for study groups.
