Shape of Catholic Theology by Aidan Nichols

Book Description

An exemplary summary of the state of Catholic theology and what appears to be its future. This historical treatment of Catholic theology looks not to the content of that theology but rather to the form in which that content is contained and how it is expressed. Faithful to Catholic teaching yet critical, discerning yet impartial, Nichols offers this introduction to dogmatic theology, with the firm belief that dogmatics are the center of theology, and that any theological discipline which cuts itself off from these heartlands does so at its own peril. For it is in dogmatics that theology is in touch with the heart of revelation, and only by virtue of the quality of its contact with that revelation is thinking Christian at all. Though comprehensive and far-reaching, this work is not beyond the understanding of people just commencing a study of theology. It makes an excellent text for study groups.

Books By Author Aidan Nichols

There is No Rose by Aidan Nichols There is No Rose, Paperback (February 2015)

Mary continues to be a source of theological interest and concern for Catholics and Protestants alike. Working through the biblical, patristic, and medieval sources, the author introduces readers to the robust scriptural and theological bases for the Church's celebration of Mary in its doctrine and liturgy.

Chalice of God by Aidan Nichols Chalice of God, Hardback (April 2012)

A Systematic Theology in Outline

Poet as Believer by Aidan Nichols Poet as Believer, Hardback (June 2011)

A comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). It illuminates how Claudel's synthesis of many dimensions remains an important way of practising poetry in the Christian tradition.

G.K.Chesterton, Theologian by Aidan Nichols G.K.Chesterton, Theologian, Paperback (October 2009)

Best known as journalist, playwright, novelist and poet, G. K. Chesterton never thought of himself as a theologian. Nevertheless he could not help thinking theologically - even when he was making jokes - and his writings illuminate the profoundest religious themes.
