Item description for The College Student's Introduction to Theology by Thomas P. Rausch...
Overview The College Student's Introduction to Theology seeks to provide an overview of theology's various specialties. Its approach is methodological rather that topical, though traditional theological issues in Christology, ecclesiology, theological anthropology, liturgy, and moral theology, as well as contemporary issues such as Church renewal, different spiritualities, feminist theology, the option for the poor, and world religions, are treated as examples.
This book provides an introduction to the study of theology and its various methods of investigation. While most theological texts focus on one facet of study, "The College Student's Introduction to Theology" introduces the whole rich and complex area of theological studies. It is written from a Roman Catholic perspective, but the book is consciously ecumenical in its approach.
Part I: Foundations examines the nature of theology as both a science and a work of the Church (and the resulting tension between theologians and bishops), the Hebrew Scriptures, and development of the New Testament canon, and an overview of the Church history.
Part II: Systematic Questions tackles Christian faith, Christian anthropology, moral theology, and the sacramental and liturgical life of the Christian.
Part III: Contemporary Issues introduces the concept and various expressions of spirituality, the Second Vatical Council, and two post conciliar issues: ecumenism and feminism.

Happy with Purchase Nov 4, 2006
I was concerned that the book would not arrive on time. However, I was very surprised that I received my book and other my products in no time, 2-4 days tops from when I placed the order. Thank you to my seller and to this site.com, you came through for me.
