Item Description...
The magnum opus of one of the fathers of modern Catholic theology! First released in 1832, this detailed dialogue with key positions taken by Luther, Calvin, the Anabaptists, Methodists, and others shows immense learning and objectivity. It profoundly affected later thinkers such as Rahner and Congar.

Publishers Description
The thought of Johann Adam Mohler has had a major impact on the development of Catholic theology in the twentieth century, providing a crucial source of inspiration for theologians such as Karl Rahner and Yves Congar. Symbolism is Mohler's magnum opus and crowning achievement, in which he works through and illuminates central issues in theological anthropology and ecclesiology within the context of a critical dialogue with Protestant theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Found this through the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia  Aug 8, 2003
I found this amazing book by way of reading up on Calvinism in the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia. The section on Calvinism begins with "No better account of this remarkable (though now largely obsolete) system has been drawn out than Möhler's in his "Symbolism or Doctrinal Differences."

Well, if this book gets such a good review from such a reputable source, then why haven't I heard of this person?

Problably the only answer to that question is intellectual laziness by myself and negligence by my professors. This is a remarkable book whose thesis is routed in the different confessionals understanding of the fall and original sin. Mohler argues that Luther and Calvin's understanding of original sin leads them to their positions, particularly in regards to justification. Of interest are also the chapters specifically on Menno, Armenius, and Swedenborg along with the extensive discussion of the Catholic/Lutheran/Zwinglian/Calvinism positions.

Also a great bonus is the introduction by Himes who places the book in its historical context and Mohler's prophetic positions only later vindicated in Vatican II (as the Tubingen school few out of favour around VI).

I think that Mohler should be read by every student of theology and should also take his rightful place with the ranks of John Henry Cardinal Newman and Etienne Gilson.

My only complain is that (so far I have had no problems with the binding, but...) the binding does seem weak and after extensive use (which I plan on doing with this book) I suspect that it might start to fall apart.

This is a must read for every Catholic interested in apologetics or theology. Maybe even more relevant today than it was when it was written.
