Preambles of faith Oct 27, 2006
I can see why Avery Dulles is a respected theologian and a pastoral person. Accessible, lucid, simple yet profound "The New World of Faith" captures in such a succinct and attractive style the teaching of the Roman tradition. Not for the expert but for the searcher - the pilgrim needing to be accompanied on their way. Placed in their hand this book provides a tool to help understand some of the divisive issues the Roman tradition holds. Whether inquiring alone or looking for a book to stimulate a group discussion, this book should not be overlooked.
A Needed Book from an Excellent Theologian Jan 5, 2003
Avery Cardinal Dulles is an excellent theologian and Catholic convert who has written a book reiterating official Church teaching. Such a book is much needed given that not a few so-called "Catholic" theologians in fact do not embrace all of the teachings of the Church. Cardinal Dulles is a theologian's theologian whose caliber of work is above that of most in the profession. And, most importantly, he works within the Catholic tradition in fidelity to the teaching authority of the Church. After reading this book, you will be well-grounded in a modern presentation of authentic Catholic teaching that encourages you to participate in the New Evangelization of John Paul II. We owe a great debt of gratitude to Cardinal Dulles for making his work accessible to the general public.
