Item Description...
Overview
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Theology  Aug 23, 2009
I had to purchase this book for a class I am taking. The first book arrived damaged so I had to return it. I promptly received a second book sent UPS(brown) not postal service. Incidently, the damage to the book was not caused by this site or the postal service, it was a publishing error. Some of the pages were cut in half, therefore making the book of no use to me since I had to have it read almost immediately. Thank you this site for replacing the book promptly and shipping it immediately. I recommend this site to all my family and friends for the book and any other needs. this site has everything. I will continue to shop at this site and I do have appoximately 3 more years of books to buy. Will be ordering soon. Thanks this site.
