Description : Since his election to the papacy in 1978, Pope John Paul II's incomparable theological thinking has exercised a vast influence upon the Catholic Church. His documents command worldwide attention because he presents the Tradition of the Church in an accessible way to contemporary readers. "The Mystery of the Trinity in the Theological Thought of Pope John Paul II" investigates all the papal documents, including his Encyclicals on the Father (Dives in Misericordia), on the Son (Redemptor Hominis), and on the Holy Spirit (Dominum et Vivificantem). In detail, this work systematically presents John Paul II's philosophy of the human person in relationship with the Divine Persons, his theology of creation and redemption, his Christology, and his theology of the Holy Spirit.

Description : Fides intellectum quaerens (“faith seeking understanding”) is always a challenge and also an important task for Christians in general and for theologians in particular. The emergence of postmodern theologies, which call for a “personal approach” to God has challenged today theologians to present God as a “personal God.” God is not a “concept” which is put on the table for discussion. Our God is “communion of persons.” He is the One whom man can converse “face to face” in Jesus Christ. However, it is easy said than done. Many has theoretically acknowledged God as a personal God, but in practice, God remains a “transcendent and unmoved” Being, who resides in heaven and has nothing to do with man in his day-to-day living. Aware that the central mystery of Christian faith is the mystery of the Blessed Trinity, and that there is very little explicit reference on the “triune character” reflected in man’s personal relationship with God, the author has offered his findings on John Paul II’s concept of “acting person” and has proposed a “personal approach” to the mystery of the Blessed Trinity. The main objective of the study is, therefore, to analyze the thought-elements in the concept of “acting person” of John Paul II and its contribution to the understanding of the personness of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the mystery of the Trinity based on John Paul II’s Trinitarian Triptych: Redemptor Hominis, Dives in Misericordia, and Dominum et Vivificantem. Precisely, with the use of text-based analysis together with the historical hermeneutic method of research in different Chapters of the study, the author has carried out his investigation. The study has offered the following findings: first, as history unfolds, the concept of “person” has been used in human early history. The concept of “person” gains a deeper meaning and significance with the birth of Christianity. Even in the Christian tradition, the concept of “person” has gone through a long process of development. However, until now there is not a universal and all-agree definition on the concept of “persons” (Chapter II); second, the Roman Catholic Church was given a saint, St. John Paul II as her leader. This saintly Pope has guided the Church not only with his example, but also his writings, especially his work The Acting Person, whose detected thought-elements have a great contribution to the understanding of the Divine Persons and their roles in divine plan of salvation (Chapter III); third, John Paul II’s teaching has its center in the mystery of the Trinity. This is specifically found in his three encyclicals dedicated to reflecting on the Three Divine Persons: the Son in Redemptor Hominis (4 Macrh, 1979), the Father in Dives in Misericordia (30 November, 1980), and the Holy Spirit in Dominum et Vivificantem (18 May, 1986) (Chapter IV); fourth, the thought-elements found in John Paul II’s concept of “acting person” is a unique legacy of his, which becomes a great contribution to the understanding of the Divine Persons and their roles in divine plan of salvation (Chapter V). In sum, the author hopes that with the analysis of John Paul II’s thought-elements found in the concept of “acting person,” there would be more effective transformation of one’s life and deeper understanding of the mystery of the Trinity. This transformation and understanding result from the fact that the divine Persons are not “static beings” but “dynamic persons” who are capable of entering into a very personal relationship with man. God, indeed, is not a God of the dead, but of the living (see Mt 22:32).

Description : What is the significance of the body? What might phenomenology contribute to a theological account of the body? And what is gained by prolonging the overlooked dialogue between St. John Paul II and Emmanuel Levinas? Nigel Zimmermann answers these questions through the agreements and the tensions between two of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. John Paul II, the Polish pope, philosopher, and theologian, and Emmanuel Levinas, the French-Jewish philosopher of Lithuanian heritage, were provocative thinkers who courageously faced and challenged the assumptions of their age. Both held the human person in high regard and did their thinking with constant reference to God and to theological language. Zimmermann does not shirk from the challenges of each thinker and does not hide their differences. However, he shows how they bequeath a legacy regarding the body that we would overlook at significant ethical peril. We are called, Zimmermann argues, to face the other. In this moment God refuses a banal marginalization and our call to responsibility for the other person is issued in their disarming vulnerability. In the body, philosophy, theology, and ethics converge to call us to glory, even in the paradox of lowly suffering.

Description : American Theological Inquiry (ATI) reaches thousands of Christian scholars, clergy, and other interested parties, primarily in the U.S. and U.K. The journal was formed in 2007 by Gannon Murphy (PhD Theology, Univ. Wales, Lampeter; Presbyterian/Reformed) and Stephen Patrick (PhD Philosophy, Univ. Illinois; Eastern Orthodox) to open up space for Christian scholars who affirm the Ecumenical Creeds to contribute research throughout the broader Christian scholarly community in America and the West. The purpose of ATI is to provide an inter-tradition forum for scholars who affirm the historic Ecumenical Creeds of Christendom to constructively communicate contemporary theologies, developments, ideas, commentaries, and insights pertaining to theology, culture, and history toward reforming and elevating Western Christianity. ATI seeks a critical function as much or more so as a quasi-ecumenical one. The purpose is not to erase or weaken the distinctives of the various ecclesial traditions, but to widen the dialogue and increase inter-tradition understanding while mutually affirming Christ's power to transform culture and the importance of strengthening Western Christianity with special reference to Her historic, creedal roots. "Theologians, would-be theologians, and the theologically attentive will want to check out American Theological Inquiry." ~ Richard John Neuhaus (1936-2009), First Things

Description : Marriage and the family are at the forefront of the burning questions being debated by civil society and the church today. Cultural changes in our increasingly secularized society have dire consequences in the family sphere, requiring a Christian response that is faithful to the Churchs tradition, says Marc Cardinal Ouellet. In Mystery and Sacrament of Love Ouellet clearly expounds a theology of marriage and the Catholic Churchs understanding of the sacrament celebrated between spouses and God. Developed with influences from Pope Francis, the theological intuitions of Vatican II, the contributions of Saint John Paul II (the pope of the family), and the innovative thought of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Ouellets study lays the foundations for a faithful resurgence of well-being for families in our contemporary day and age.

Description : "The goal of this volume is to revise Hans Urs von Balthasar's theology of divine suffering, that is, his disputed discourse on the descent of Christ into hell and its implications for the Triune God, according to a robust contemporary Catholic theology. In order to accomplish such an appropriation, I have recourse not only to twentieth-century Thomistic theology, but also to the thought of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) and Pope St. John Paul II. I seek to engage the best of the vast relevant secondary literature on Balthasar and to offer a balanced assessment of his work on the topic of divine suffering, both critical and appreciative in different respects. I argue for a peculiar interpretation of Balthasar's take on Holy Saturday and for a more refined use of language in theological discourse than is typical of his sometimes-hyperbolic style. Recognizing his laudable attempt to integrate mystical spirituality and systematic theology, I seek to distinguish valid insights from confused mixtures of metaphorical, meta-symbolic, and philosophical (metaphysical) discourse on God, particularly, with respect to the classical problem of how the Creator who willed to become incarnate may be said to suffer. Truly, "One of the Trinity has suffered," and yet this is mystery of faith that ought to be carefully explained and understood in conformity with sustained Catholic reflection on divine immutability and simplicity, the dual nature and unique personhood of Christ, the Trinity of divine subsistent relations, the freedom of God in creating and becoming man, the analogy of being, the problem of evil, and the immensity and infinite value of Christ's redemptive suffering"--

Description : The nature of the relationship between Christian faith and social justice continues to challenge contemporary theological reflection. This study examines Pope John Paul II's understanding of the principle, first formulated in the 1971 Synod document "Justice in the World," that action for social justice is an essential part of the gospel. It clearly demonstrates that John Paul's teaching on faith and social justice is rooted in his philosophical and theological anthropology, specifically his emphasis on -the person revealed in action-. This study highlights the unique contribution of John Paul's vision of the person to Catholic social teaching in general and to the relationship between faith and social justice in particular."

Description : Balthasar's unique volume on Thérèse of Lisieux and Elizabeth of the Trinity presents a theological biography of each of these holy Carmelite sisters which gives profound insights into their spirituality, showing that their differences actually complement one another. Balthasar probes the depths of the contemplative mission of each of these young Carmelites who both died in their twenties, and gave powerful witness to the critical importance of contemplation as a means to holiness. Each woman is clearly shown as a daughter of her Carmelite heritage with her own emphasis: Thérèse's discovery of the "little way of love" and Elizabeth's focus on the indwelling of God in the soul.

Description : Marked by growing freedom and equality, today's families are also dogged by brokenness and loss of faith. And while the theology of marriage has developed remarkably under the impetus of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II, the theology of the family remains in its infancy, only beginning to meet the challenges of contemporary society. In Divine Likeness Marc Cardinal Ouellet points the way to a much-needed theology of the family grounded in the doctrine of the Trinity. Cardinal Ouellet understands family life to be a sacrament of Trinitarian communion, a crucial source for revealing and inspiring a new sense of God's presence in the faith community. This book will help theologians, pastors, and believers to develop fruitfully the legacy of Pope John Paul II, carrying forward the quest to let the Trinity and the family illuminate each other for the good of today's world.

Description : John Paul II: The Encyclicals in Everyday Language, an Orbis bestseller, now includes the Pope's most recent encyclical Fides et Ratio ("Faith and Reason"). Father Donders gives us the gist of this complex encyclical and the twelve that preceded it in easy-to-read sense lines. In a penetrating epilogue entitled "The Man and the Message", Father Donders offers a profound interpretation of John Paul II's legacy and the unity of his thirteen encyclicals. Here Donders shows that the pope's teaching is best understood as an expression of his fundamental intuition into the meaning of Christianity.

Description : Beginning with a personal recollection of the achievements of Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., by David L. Schinder, this work includes twelve essays by theologians who acknowledge a debt to Father Fessio and Ignatius Press. These twelve essays treat topics such as the Church as the mystical body, the liturgy, Christian apologetics in post-modern culture, public theology, analogy, Scriptural interpretation, marriage and the Trinity, theological dramatics, Pope Benedict XVI's sources, Tradition, and development of doctrine. Among the major 20th century figures treated in these essays are Hans Urs von Balthasar, Louis Bouyer, Henri de Lubac, Joseph Ratzinger, and Josef Pieper. The contributors hope that the topics of the essays represent a large swath of the interests of Father Fessio, from his early scholarly work on the Church, his commitment to liturgical renewal and Catholic catechesis, through his devotion to Ignatian spirituality and his appreciation for Thomistic philosophy, and his lifelong engagement with the theology of von Balthasar and Ratzinger.

Description : “Pope Benedict XVI, writing in 1988 as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, described Matthias Joseph Scheeben’s theology as justly praised, but rather less read. My modest hope, through this entirely straightforward study, is to encourage some more—in a phrase Scheeben would relish—ecclesially fruitful reading of him in the English-speaking world.”—From the Author’s Preface Romance and System: The Theological Synthesis of Matthias Joseph Scheeben by Aidan Nichols, OP, is a comprehensive introduction to one of the most significant dogmatic theologians of recent centuries. Exploring the vigor, coherence, and beauty of Scheeben’s theological vision, Nichols concludes that the great German theologian’s work combines “romance and system”: a lyrical appeal to the imagination and a virile challenge to the intellect, the inspiration of metaphor and the conceptual power of an architectonic account of the revelation carried by the Church. Romance and System examines the major themes of Scheeben’s works and underscores their preeminence in Catholic dogmatic theology.
