Product Description

From the Back Cover

Catholic Theology: An Introduction is an accessible, comprehensive and in-depth examination of Catholic theology, exploring how it is rooted in and informs Catholic practice.  The text provides an overview of all the major topics of Catholic theology from the Trinity and the Church to prayer and the sacraments.

For each topic, the authors weave together discussion of the Bible, historical texts, reflections by important theologians, and contemporary debates and sources for a nuanced look at Catholic belief and practice. They discuss scriptural, historical, philosophical, systematic, liturgical, and moral aspects of Catholic theology. The text places particular emphasis on the interconnectedness of various beliefs and the breadth of sacramental, devotional, and moral practices within the Catholic faith. Appropriate for students at all levels, this text assumes no prior knowledge of the topic while providing depth and insight to engage those readers more familiar with the topic.
