Reviews - What do customers think about Augustinianism and Modern Theology (Milestones in Catholic Theology)?
A Formidable Work on Nature and Grace Apr 26, 2009
This is a formidable work. The early chapters focus on Baius and Jansen. de Lubac, to my surprise, argues that Jansen misunderstood Augustine although the latter had read Augustine in his entirety ten times and his anti-Pelagian works thirty times. The basis of Jansen's misunderstanding of Augustine according to de Lubac lies in his misunderstanding of the supernatural. de Lubac was positively brilliant but his detailed discussions of the supernatural and its relation to nature and grace appears to go beyond the original thought and intent of Augustine himself. Perhaps this work tells us more about de Lubac than Augustine. If, however, you are interested in understanding the thought of one of the most brilliant Roman Catholic theologians of the 20th century, then this is a must read.
