Product Description

Over the course of a distinguished theological career, Aidan Nichols has produced an array of masterful contributions to the fields of systematic theology, ecclesiology, theological aesthetics, ecumenism, liturgy, and Scripture. Now, in Chalice of God, he attempts to synthesize a lifetime of research, teaching, and scholarly reflection in a book that is both rigorously academic and intensely personal.

This is Nichols theological manifesto for the twenty-first century. Drawing together the insights of high scholasticism, the mid-twentieth-century ressourcement movement, a holistic reading of Scripture typical of the best patristic exegesis, and the liturgical tradition and iconography of both East and West, he presents a sound architecture for contemporary Catholic theology. Chalice of God promises to enrich and challenge those who engage in the enterprise of theology for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

By his numerous publications, English Dominican Aidan Nichols has contributed mightily to the theological education of the Christian world. In Chalice of God, Nichols serves up classic ressourcement at its best.

In Chalice of God, Father Aidan Nichols, OP, makes an important contribution to systematic theology. He provides a high-level overview of Catholic theology that will be helpful to those looking for a concise and comprehensive vision of the faith as an organic whole. Anyone looking for a well written and theologically penetrating overview of Catholic theology will find it here. Chalice of God attempts successfully the daring effort to present a coordinated view of theology itself.
