Item Description...
Overview
Avery Dulles's theological career has spanned one of the most creative and confusing periods in the history of the church. With the goal of integrating new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas, with the net effect of a loss of coherence. It is Fr. Dulles's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart that what seems false and dangerous to one school seems almost self-evident to another. Theologians lack a common language, common goals, and common norms. Exploring the possibilities for greater consensus, The Craft of Theology illustrates how a "post-critical" theology can draw on the riches of Scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the church in new contexts. Fr. Dulles discusses the freedom of theology within the university and sets forth principles for a fresh dialogue with philosophy, the sciences, and other Christian churches.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Collection of Essays  Jun 8, 2008
This book is a collection of essays written by Cardinal Dulles. On of the chapters I enjoyed best was about the strengths and weaknesses of Scholastic theology. Having been educated in this type of doing theology, Dulles acknowledges ten good things about it (pp. 42-43). He then compares the methodology of Scholasticism (controversial, argumentative, apologetical, deductive and inductive) with the methodology of present day theology (open to dialogue, inductive, hermeneutical, empirical, interested not only in the content of the faith, but in its dynamics and socio-political applications). In the book the reader will also learn about ten approaches to Scriptures; Hans Kung's christological presuppositions; and the transformative power of beliefs.
