    Gilbert C. Meilaender
    Subject(s):
    Adoption (Theology), Adoption--Religious aspects--Christianity, Families--Religious aspects--Christianity
    Abstract:

    Working from within the contours of Christian faith, this book examines the relation between two ways of forming families-through nature (by procreation) and through history (by adoption). Christians honor the biological tie between parents and children, for it is the work of God in creation. Yet Christians cannot forget that it is adoption, and not simply natural descent, that is at the center of the New Testament’s depiction of God’s grace. Gilbert Meilaender takes up a range of iss…

    Cardinal Virtues

  • Author(s):
    John Henry Cardinal Newman
    Subject(s):
    Theism, Faith
    Abstract:

    This classic of Christian apologetics seeks to persuade the skeptic that there are good reasons to believe in God even though it is impossible to understand the deity fully. First written over a century ago, the Grammar of Assent speaks as powerfully to us today as it did to its first readers. Because of the informal, non-technical character of Newman’s work, it still retains its immediacy as an invaluable guide to the nature of religious belief. A new introduction by Nicholas Lash revi…

    Abstract:

    Benedict XVI’s writing as priest-professor, bishop, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and now pope has shaped Catholic theological thought in the twentieth century. In Explorations in the Theology of Benedict XVI, a multidisciplinary group of scholars treat the full scope of Benedict’s theological oeuvre, including the Augustinian context of his thought; his ecclesiology; his theologically grounded approach to biblical exegesis and Christology; his unfolding of…

    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.

    In her introduction, noted Newman scholar Mary Katherine Tillman considers the volume as an integral whole, showing how all of the sermons systematically rel…

    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…

    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…

    Subject(s):

    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 …

    Thomas P. Scheck
    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…

    St. Anselm
    Subject(s):
    Good--Proof, Ontological
    Abstract:

    In the Proslogion St. Anselm presents a philosophical argument for the existence of God. Anselm’s proof, known since the time of Kant as the ontological argument for the existence of God, has played an important role in the history of philosophy and has been incorporated in various forms into the systems of Descartes, Leibniz, Hegel, and others.

    Included in this edition of St. Anselm’s Proslogion are Gaunilo’s A Reply on Behalf of the Fool and St. Anselm’s The Author’…
