    Love--Religious aspects--Christianity, God (Christianity)--Love, Christianity and culture
    Abstract:

    In his two previous books translated into English, Patience with God and Night of the Confessor, best-selling Czech author and theologian Tom\00E1\0161 Halík focused on the relationship between faith and hope. Now, in I Want You to Be, Halík examines the connection between faith and love, meditating on a statement attributed to St. Augustine-amo, volo ut sis, “I love you: I want you to be”-and its importance for contemporary Christian practice. Halík suggests that because Go…

    Subject(s):
    Apologetics--Early works to 1800
    Abstract:

    The Summa Contra Gentiles is not merely the only complete summary of Christian doctrine that St. Thomas has written, but also a creative and even revolutionary work of Christian apologetics composed at the precise moment when Christian thought needed to be intellectually creative in order to master and assimilate the intelligence and wisdom of the Greeks and the Arabs. In the Summa Aquinas works to save and purify the thought of the Greeks and the Arabs in the higher light of Christian Re…

    Cardinal Virtues

From his careful consideration of what true happiness is, to his comprehensive discussion of how it can be attained, St. Thomas Aquinas offers a challenging and classic statement of the goals of human life, both ultimate and proximate.

  • Author(s):
    Maurice Blondel
    Subject(s):
    Act (Philosophy), Ethics, Life
    Abstract:

    Action was once a prominent theme in philosophical reflection. It figured prominently in Aristotelian philosophy, and the medieval Scholastics built some of their key adages around it. But by the time Maurice Blondel came to focus on it for his own philosophical reflection, it had all but disappeared from the philosophical vocabulary. It is no longer possible or legitimate to ignore action in philosophy as it was in France when Blondel appeared on the scene in 1882, when at the age of 21 he f…

    John Henry Cardinal Newman
    Subject(s):
    Church of England--Sermons, Sermons, English--19th century
    Abstract:

    These remarkable sermons by John Henry Newman (1801-1890) were first published at Oxford in 1843, two years before he was received into the Roman Catholic Church. Published here in its entirety is the third edition of 1872 for which Newman added an additional sermon, bracketed notes, and, importantly, a comprehensive, condensed Preface.

  • Author(s):
    Thomas A. Lewis
    Subject(s):
    Religion--Philosophy, Ethics, Liberty, Tradition (Philosophy), Philosophical anthropology
    Abstract:

    Freedom and Tradition in Hegel stands at the intersection of three vital currents in contemporary ethics: debates over philosophical anthropology and its significance for ethics, reevaluations of tradition and modernity, and a resurgence of interest in Hegel. Thomas A. Lewis engages these three streams of thought in light of Hegel’s recently published Vorlesungen über die Philosophie des Geistes. Drawing extensively on these lectures, Lewis addresses an important lacuna in Hegelian scho…

    Grace (Theology), Merit (Christianity)
    Abstract:

    Offering a fresh approach to one significant aspect of the soteriology of Thomas Aquinas, God’s Grace and Human Action brings new scholarship and insights to the issue of merit in Aquinas’s theology. Through a careful historical analysis, Joseph P. Wawrykow delineates the precise function of merit in Aquinas’s account of salvation. Wawrykow accounts for the changes in Thomas’s teaching on merit from the early Scriptum on the Sentences of Peter Lombard to the later Summa theo…

    Abstract:

    The twentieth-century Dutch philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd (1894-1977) left behind an impressive canon of philosophical works and has continued to influence a scholarly community in Europe and North America, which has extended, critiqued, and applied his thought in many academic fields. Jonathan Chaplin introduces Dooyeweerd for the first time to many English readers by critically expounding Dooyeweerd’s social and political thought and by exhibiting its pertinence to contemporary civil so…
