Product Description

This work provides an introduction to the major non-neoscholastic, English speaking 20th Century Catholic Theologians. Fergus Kerr notes this with some trepidation, reminding us that many Italian and Spanish speaking theologians contributed heavily to the Church's theology in the modern century. Each chapter provides a brief biographical sketch, a summary of the theologian's major points of emphasis, as well as detailed descriptions of the controversies in which they were immersed. Theologians included in this work are, Karl Rahner, Henri de Lubac, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Joseph Ratzinger, and many more.

"Kerr covers a range of important topics ... To read thiswonderful book is to receive a first class introduction to Catholictheology in the twentieth century." Modern Theology

"This is a superb introduction, inspiring for readers in everyChristian tradition. Kerr is deft on the theology, and he includespersonal details so that his theologians never become blankabstractions. And few theologians write prose as lively as Kerr?s."Touchstone

?Kerr, a brilliantly erudite and elliptical Dominicantheologian, is a deft guide to this vast and complex subject ?Riveting, insightful and astute.? International Journal ofPublic Theology

"Excellent ? It is difficult to think who could have provided uswith a more authoritative and engaging account of this decisivecentury in the theology of the Western Church."
New Directions

"Kerr writes with a clarity and wit." ChristianCentury

Theological Book Review

"With characteristic lucidity and insight, Fergus Kerr narratesthe story of twentieth-century Catholic theology. This illuminatingand compelling account will surely be appreciated by a wideecumenical readership." David Fergusson, University ofEdinburgh

"An engaging biblio-biographical study designed to show thecritical influence of ten theologians in transformingtwentieth-century Catholicism. Kerr's keen sense for trajectoriesreveals how startling has been the transformation ? more than halfhad been disciplined by Vatican authorities. In the face of theselives, no one will ever be able to doubt the potential forintellectual regeneration, while the rich perspective they offermay also help defuse trivial tensions exacerbated by needlessideological polarization. This narrative of theology-in-action ismeant for literate faithful as well as pastoral workers fromacolyte to bishop." David Burrell, University of NotreDame

"Kerr, with his usual oblique fluency, miraculously manages toinclude an attention to nuance and telling detail within a shortgeneral account that is unerringly focussed on what, in theprevious century of Catholic thought, is still likely to matter inthe current one. This volume will surely become the standardintroduction to its subject matter." John Milbank, University ofNottingham

"This volume offers analysis of some of the most significanttheologians of the last hundred years by a theologian widelyregarded as the most knowledgeable and insightful academic in thefield. Simply invaluable." Alan Torrance, St. AndrewsUniversity
