Item description for Theology in History: The Light of Christ, Disputed Questions and Resistance to Nazism by Henri de Lubac & Anne Englund Nash...

The unique insight and impressive scholarship of the eminent French theologian Cardinal Henri de Lubac are clearly evident in this volume of collected articles and essays. An article of great timeliness on the priesthood according to St. John Chrysostom as well as an important study of the long debate over the salvation of Origen are among the texts included in the first section, devoted to patristics and Christian humanism. The second section, comprised entirely of an unpublished work on tripartite anthropology tracing the body-soul-spiritdistinction from St. Paul, the patristic tradition, St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, up to the modern period, will prove an invaluable guide for further study and reflection. The section concludes with a beautiful text entitled "The Light of Christ", a prayerful meditation written during the dark hours of Nazi domination. Section three deals with disputed theological questions such as the internal causes of the disappearance of the sense of the sacred, the mystery of the supernatural, and the development of dogma. He also has a section on Christian resistato Nazism and anti-semitism, as well as two sections on the thought and writings of several important modern spiritual writers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theology in History: The Light of Christ, Disputed Questions and Resistance to Nazism?

Eavesdropping on Greatness  Jan 5, 2005
"Theology in History" is a remarkable work, one that resists easy summary. Over 600 pages, it is more like a collection of short books and long articles. Not for the casual reader or for those who have yet to read de Lubac's masterpiece, "Catholicism," but a fascinating glimpse at a range of de Lubac's thought nonetheless.

Part I, The Light of Christ, has short pieces on Pico, Chrysostom, and Pascal, with a 59-page history of the interpretation of Origen. In 83 pages, de Lubac traces the tripartite anthropology (body, soul, spirit) from St. Paul to the present (excluding the recent prominence given in the Catechism of the Catholic Church).

In Part Two, the disputed questions include "Internal causes of the weakening . . . of the sense of the sacred," "Against vain impatience," "The problem of the development of dogma," and "The mystery of the supernatural." The section on "Christian Resistance to Nazism and Anti-Semitism" has historical interest but also reaches beyond with essays like "The theological foundation of the missions," "A new religious front," and "Spiritual warfare."

Most of the rest of the book is a collection of writings on figures in the Church. De Lubac offers a discernment of spirits with regard to Teilhard de Chardin (65 pages). Included here are shorter essays on notable figures: Abbe Monchanin, Msgr. Mulla-Zade, Fr. Jacques Loew, Wojtyla, Madeline Delbrel, Msgr. Fernand Guimet, Cardinal Renard, Fr. Gaston Fessard, and Hans Urs von Balthasar.

A central figure of the Second Vatican Council, Henri de Lubac here shares credit with those who preceded him, those who accompanied him, and those that have continued his work in the present. As a whole, "Theology in History" is like discovering a collection of letters in an attic that refer to personalities, controversies, and issues of another time.
