    Metz, Johann Baptist, 1928-
    Abstract:

    Johann Baptist Metz is one of the most important Roman Catholic theologians in the post-Vatican II period, however there is no comprehensive overview of his theological career. This book fills that gap. It offers careful analyses and summaries of Metz’s work at the various stages of his career, beginning with his work on Heidegger and his collaboration with Karl Rahner.

    It continues with his work in the nineteen-sixties when he moved off in a radically different direction to found a &quo…

    Qur'an--Reading, Qur'an--Criticism, interpretation, etc, Qur'an--History, Qur'an--Hermeneutics
    Abstract:

    Opening the Qur'an can be a bewildering experience to non-Muslim, English-speaking readers. Those who expect historical narratives, stories, or essays on morals are perplexed once they pass the beautiful first Surah, often shocked and then bogged down by Surah 2, and even offended by Surah 3’s strictures against nonbelievers. Walter H. Wagner “opens” the Qur'an by offering a comprehensive and extraordinarily readable, step-by-step introduction to the text, making it …

    Subject(s):
    Bible. Romans--Commentaries
    Abstract:

    Standard accounts of the history of interpretation of Paul’s Letter to the Romans often begin with St. Augustine. As Thomas P. Scheck demonstrates, however, the Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen of Alexandria (185-254 CE) was a major work of Pauline exegesis which, by means of the Latin translation preserved in the West, had a significant influence on the Christian exegetical tradition. Scheck begins by exploring Origen’s views on justification and on the intimate co…

    Rationalism

    Typology (Theology), Ticonius, active 4th century Liber regularum, Bible--Prophecies, Bible--Hermeneutics
    Abstract:

    The Liber Regularum, written by Tyconius in the Fourth Century A.D., was the first system of biblical interpretation proposed by a Latin theologian. Augustine was very interested in this work and included an extraordinary summation of it in his De doctrina christiana. Although this treatment insured the preservation of the work and its lasting fame, Augustine’s summary became better known than the original.

    The Church of the Holy Spirit, written by Russian priest and scholar Nicholas Afanasiev (1893-1966), is one of the most important works of twentieth-century Orthodox theology. Afanasiev was a member of the “Paris School” of émigré intellectuals who gathered in Paris after the Russian revolution, where he became a member of the faculty of St. Sergius Orthodox Seminary.

    Liberation theology--Congresses, Poverty--Religious aspects--Catholic Church--Congresses
    Abstract:

    Since the publication of Gustavo Guti\u00Errez’s 1973 groundbreaking work, A Theology of Liberation, much has been written on liberation theology and its central premise of the preferential option for the poor. Arguably, this has been one of the most important yet controversial theological themes of the twentieth century. As globalization creates greater gaps between the rich and the poor, and as the situation for many of the world’s poor worsens, there is an ever greater need to un…

    Romanticism
    Abstract:

    This eagerly awaited study brings to completion Louis Dupr\u00E’s planned trilogy on European culture during the modern epoch. Demonstrating remarkable erudition and sweeping breadth, The Quest of the Absolute analyzes Romanticism as a unique cultural phenomenon and a spiritual revolution. Dupr\u00E philosophically reflects on its attempts to recapture the past and transform the present in a movement that is partly a return to premodern culture and partly a violent protest against it. F…

    Subject(s):
    Eschatology, Cosmology, Eternity, Space and time--Religious aspects--Christianity, Religion and science
    Abstract:

    According to Robert John Russell, one of the foremost scholars on relating Christian theology and science, the topic of “time and eternity” is central to the relation between God and the world in two ways. First, it involves the notion of the divine eternity as the supratemporal source of creaturely time. Second, it involves the eternity of the eschatological New Creation beginning with the bodily Resurrection of Jesus in relation to creaturely time. The key to Russell’s engagem…
