This book is specifically addressed to "people who worry when they have questions about their faith or when they begin to realize that the old explanations, which were good enough before, no longer seem to offer coherent meaning."

The text, originally published in 1981, has been completely revised and updated for readers in a new century
What are the theologians saying? by Monika Hellwig( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 1993 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What Are the Theologians Saying? is a book for Catholic adults who want to understand the changing focus in Catholic theology, but who have no specialized training in theology. It treats some of the basic questions theologians have been working on. They are not always the immediate practical questions, but the more fundamental ones that must be asked before the practical ones can be solved.-back cover

Original selfishness : original sin and evil in the light of evolution by Daryl P Domning( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book defends a startling idea: that the age-old theological and philosophical problems of original sin and evil, long thought intractable, have already been solved. The solution has come from the very scientific discovery that many consider the most mortal threat to traditional religion: evolution." "Daryl P. Domning explains in straightforward terms the workings of modern evolutionary theory, Darwinian natural selection, and how this has brought forth life and the human mind. He counters objections to Darwinism that are raised by some believers and emphasizes that the evolutionary process necessarily enforces selfish behavior on all living things. This account of both physical and moral evil is arguably more consistent with traditional Christian teachings than are the explanations given by most contemporary "evolutionary" theologians themselves."--Jacket
Paul Tillich : a new Catholic assessment( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirty years ago, a group of Catholic scholars responded to the radical challenges of Paul Tillich's theology in a collection of essays that was courageous and farsighted for its time. This present collection of contemporary articles, a successor to the 1964 volume, reflects the very different religious and cultural situation that characterizes post-Vatican II theology and demonstrates the wide spectrum of positive and creative ways in which the thought of Paul Tillich - one of this century's most important Protestant theologians - continues to influence Catholic theological reflection today." "Noted Catholic theologians from Africa, Canada, Europe, India, and the United States engage Tillich's theology in a cross section of contemporary issues such as feminism, liberation theology, sacraments, and spirituality. Their efforts are complemented by a Protestant response from Langdon Gilkey, one of the world's foremost authorities on Tillich. This volume reveals the enduring power of Tillich's thought to give shape to current Catholic theology and suggests valuable new ecumenical avenues of research for all theologians and other scholars who wish to study and use Paul Tillich's theological legacy."--BOOK JACKET
A case for peace in reason and faith by Monika Hellwig( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public dimensions of a believer's life : rediscovering the cardinal virtues by Monika Hellwig( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent American politics, the term "morality" has come to be used in a way almost entirely restricted to private family and sexual issues, leaving aside responsibility for immensely consequential decisions about initiating wars, oppressive policies, regressive tax structures, and disregard of the United Nations and international law. Public Dimensions of a Believer's Life is about human responsibility in public life and the moral and spiritual factors involved in exercising that responsibility. Monika K. Hellwig explores the decisions people have to make in human affairs at all levels of social organization, the values that guide these decisions, and the way those values are often apparently in conflict with one another."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tradition : the Catholic story today by Monika Hellwig( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is concerned with a contemporary appraisal of our Catholic heritage, with an attempt to describe coherently what it is that we have to pass on to newcomers and to future generations. Thus there is a whole range of questions concerning those to whom this heritage is offered that this book does not attempt to discuss at all -- most importantly the question concerning the age at which ritual and community experiences and explanations might be offered and the many questions concerning mode and techniques of communication." [Introduction]
