The contemplative church : Joachim and his adversaries by George H Tavard( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appointed by John XXIII to the Pontifical Secretariat for the Promotion of the Unity of Christians, and then to the Vatican Council as theologian (peritus), George Tavard directly contributed to the writing of the Decree on Ecumenism and afterward served in major ecumenical dialogues, both in the U.S. and internationally. Born from this ecumenical experience and theological reflection and influenced by theology in France, where Henri de Lubac was one of his professors and he was personally acquainted with Jean Danielou and Yves Congar, the author will guide the reader through the problems, difficulties, intricacies, and also the hopes, possibilities, and discoveries of the ecumenical way, leading to see why John Paul II declared the ecumenical commitment of the Catholic Church to be "irrevocable."

When Martin Luther hung his ninety-five theses on the church door in Wittenberg, the Roman Catholic Church suffered the greatest schism in its modern history. The result was Protestantism. What were the social, economic and religious conditions which gave rise to Protestantism? Who were thse men--Luther, Zwingli and Calvin--who initiated the tremendous division that is our heritage today? The author gives the answers to these questions and traces Protestantism through all the twists and turns of its history. Here are the insights into the thinking of the Reformers and their influence in central and northern Europe

Vatican II and the ecumenical way by George H Tavard( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was born from the author's ecumenical experience and theological reflection. Formed in theology in France, where Henri de Lubac was one of his professors, the author also knew Jean Danielou and Yves Congar well. He is thus well acquainted with what came to be called the 'new theology, ' while his doctoral thesis on St. Bonaventure anchored his thought in the great century of scholastic theology." "In the perusal of this new book the reader will be guided through the problems, difficulties, intricacies, and also the hopes, possibilities, and discoveries of the ecumenical way. He or she should be led to see why John Paul II, who also had experienced Vatican II, declared the ecumenical commitment of the Catholic Church to be "irrevocable.""--Jacket

The starting point of Calvin's theology by George H Tavard( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume introduces readers to Calvin's little-known Psychopannychia, showing how this early, generally neglected book serves as the essential starting point for understanding Calvin's entry into the Reformed way of thought that he transmitted to posterity." "The only study of Psychopannychia in English, Tavard's work contributes to a historical understanding of Calvin's thought and, just as important, helps demonstrate the "catholic" scope of his reforming intentions. These twin concerns will make this volume equally valuable to students of theology, church history, and contemporary ecumenical dialogue."--Jacket
