The Eerdmans Catholic Theology Collection presents a wealth of insights, reflections, and challenges for Catholics, and indeed, all Christians. This is not a collection for soothing re-affirmation of the modern-day “it’s all good” mentality, but rather a powerful set of volumes that provoke you to re-think what it means to be Christian and a Catholic. Reflect deeply on theology and culture with theologian David L. Schindler in Being Holy in the World: Theology and Culture in the Thought of David L. Schindler. Learn more about the place of women in the intellectual history of the West with Sr. Prudence Allen’s monumental multivolume work The Concept of Woman, volumes one and two. Hear two different approaches to the beloved twentieth-century theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar. In After Vatican II, James L. Heft analyzes the impact of Vatican II on the trajectory of the Church and introduces readers to the hermeneutical controversies that it has sparked. Karen Kilby’s Balthasar offers an intriguing and notably critical examination of this significant Roman Catholic theologian praised so highly by John Paul II and Benedict XVI. In The Blessed Virgin Mary, Anglican priest Tim Perry and Jesuit priest Daniel Kendall team up to present a readable and informative introduction to the way the Church has viewed the Lord’s mother throughout history. In How Can the Petrine Ministry Be a Service to the Unity of the Universal Church?, editor James Puglisi assembles a transdenominational team of scholars to explore ways that the papacy—the historically dividing feature of the Roman Church—can be used for ecumenical advancement. Erich Przywara’s Analogia Entis presents the doctrine of the analogy between God and creation that is so foundational for theological and philosophical discussion of how finite man can know the transcendent God. And in New Proofs for the Existence of God, philosopher and Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, SJ presents exciting discoveries from quantum physics and the philosophy of time with significant theistic implications.
