Item description for God Encountered: A Contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology, Vol. 2: The Revelation of the Glory , Part 2: One God, Creator of All That Is (God Encountered #2) by Frans Jozef van Beeck & Frans Jozef Van Beeck...
Overview In Volume Two/2 catholic theology treats some of the great Western attempts at reflecting on the nature of God; it also takes on modern Western religiosity, both as it professes belief in God and as it has settled for various forms of atheism. But more importantly, the book discovers and rediscovers the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, of Moses and the prophets the God of Jesus Christ.
Publishers Description The Christian faith is radically dependent on Israel's understanding, both of God and of humanity's vocation before God. No wonder great Christian thinkers have ventured theological inquiries that seek, in an encompassing vision, to do justice to the living God and to give a deeply intelligent account of humanity and the created universe. The modern era has found such unified visions hard to sustain. For one thing, it views monotheism, not as a mystery of worship and wisdom, but as a victory of Reason; thus it has often traded the living God for a remote, omnipotent "deity" that guides the world. For another, it tends to prize godly experience more than God; thus it has often traded worship for religious self-consciousness. In this book, Catholic theology takes on modern Western religiosity, both as it professes belief in God and as it has settled for various forms of atheism. But more importantly, this book discovers and rediscovers the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, of Moses and the prophets-the God of Jesus Christ. The God who "alone is enough."

Finitude and the Fall Mar 30, 2007
This volume is the first of a sequence of two in-between parts of Volume Two. Neither part constitutes the doctrinal center of God, encountered and conceived as a system of Christian Theology. Fundamentally the author speaks in Chapters 12-14 (in the whole series) of Anthropology and Theology creation and Anthropology, definition of sin, and the power of sin. This volume also lays the foundation for the theology of sin to be covered in Volume Two: part IV. The format of the text is designed with a clear cross reference between the texts and volumes to come. The use of paragraph numbers and references of those numbers throughout these volumes gives an ease to forward and backward referencing which gives ease to reading a fairly complex book. In order to appreciate the total contemporary Catholic Systematic Theology it is necessary to read Volume One, Volume Two, parts 1, 2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5, and Volume Three. Part 5 and Volume 3 are in publication. Bibliography, subject, Scripture, and name index is included. It has been used as a college text for systematic theology classes.
