A time line and an index round out this succinctly organized, methodological comprehensive text Jun 9, 2007
Christian Brothers Academy religious studies chair Gregory C. Higgins presents Christianity 101: A Textbook of Catholic Theology, an introductory text especially for college-level courses in Christian theology, also useful for self-education among lay readers. Chapters cover the nature of theology, the concept of God in medieval vs. Reformation and modern theology, the sacraments of initiation, healing, and commitment, moral theology, eschatology, and much more. A time line and an index round out this succinctly organized, methodological comprehensive text for novice to intermediate students. "Among the more significant developments in the twentieth century thought regarding God were the philosophical discussions about the meaningfulness of religious language, the psychological atheism of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), and the creative theological syntheses produced by, among others, Paul Tillich (1886-1965) and Karl Rahner (1904-84)."

Greg Higgins has done it again. This time his work encompasses substantive theology and history with a clear and engaging writing style. As a high school teacher at Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, NJ. Higgins is no stranger to the tasks necessary to make theology come alive through the written word. His previous books showed his abilities in this regard and his latest one is a tour de force which will be welcomed by college professors and faculty who work with upper division, bright students in high school wanting to get the full sweep of Christianity's place in the theological world. Concepts, people, schools of thought and traditions all come together in a synthesis that will serve educators well as they put together courses for the inquiring, young theological mind. Bravo!
