The Oxford Handbook of Catholic Theology PDF
Edited by Lewis Ayres, Medi Ann Volpe
Part of the Oxford Handbooks series
The Oxford Handbook of Catholic Theology provides a one-volume introduction to all the major aspects of Catholic theology.
Part One considers the nature of theological thinking, and the major topics of Catholic teaching, including the Triune God, the Creation, and the mission of the Incarnate Word.
It also covers the character of the Christian sacramental life and the major themes of Catholic moral teaching.
The treatments in the first part of the Handbookoffer personal syntheses of Catholic teaching, but each offers an account in accord with Catholic theology as it is expressed in the Second Vatican Council and authoritative documentation.
Part Two focuses on the historical development of Catholic Theology.
An initial section offers essays on some of Catholictheology's most important sources between 200 and 1870, and the final section of the collection considers all the main movements and developments in Catholic theology across the world since 1870. This comprehensive volume features fifty-six original contributions by some of the best-known names in current Catholic theology from the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The chapters are written in an engaging and easily comprehensible style functioning both as a scholarly reference and as a survey of the field.
There are no comparable studies available in one volume and the book will be an indispensable reference for students of Catholic theology at all levels and in allcontexts.
