Regular price $16.95 USD
Regular price Sale price $16.95 USD
This study of historical and systematic theology focuses on theological anthropology and the meaning of human personhood. More specifically it is a study of how Roman Catholic thinkers in the post-World War II to pre-Vatican II era initiated a "new theology" that marked a dramatic break from post-Tridentine, counter-Reformation theology. The study exposes, critiques, and interrelates the thought of Henri de Lubac, Karl Rahner, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Juan Alfaro, Max Seckler, Edward Schillebeeckx, and an emerging American movement. These theologians ushered in a new understanding of the relationship between nature and grace. No other work so completely and clearly relates and defines the new theological understanding of nature and grace that has lead to the radical change experienced by Catholicism in this century.
