Models of the church by Avery Dulles( Book )

58 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Models of revelation by Avery Dulles( Book )

36 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author explores the doctrine at the very center of Christianity: that Christianity is based on the word of God as given to the church. Following the format of his earlier Models of the Church, Dulles derives five models of the character of this much-neglected theme of revelation. He considers revelation as doctrine, as history, as inner experience, as dialectical presence, and as new awareness. - Back cover
A history of apologetics by Avery Dulles( Book )

21 editions published between 1971 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cardinal Avery Dulles's A History of Apologetics provides an overview of Christian apologetics, from its beginning in the New Testament through the Middle Ages and on to the present resurgence of apologetics among Catholics and Protestants. Dulles shows how Christian apologists have at times both criticized and drawn from their intellectual surroundings to present the reasonableness of Christian belief
The Catholicity of the church by Avery Dulles( Book )

30 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly all Christians profess allegiance to the holy catholic church, but the meaning of the term "catholic" is widely disputed. This book investigates the historical use of the word and the various aspects of catholicity. Beginning with the word's divine source in Christ as "the first-born of all creation," Dulles goes on to discuss such topics as the "catholic principle," Catholicism as a specific ecclesial type, and the possibility of a "Protestant Catholicism." He concludes by asking how, given the current "parochial" appearance of Christianity, any Christian church can plausibly claim to be catholic
The survival of dogma by Avery Dulles( Book )

28 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in English and French and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deals with faith, teaching authority and dogma, showing that these various dimensions of the Christian reality, instead of evolving peacefully from within according to predetermined categories, undergo a discontinuous 'quantum leap' each time that the culture in which Christianity is imbedded passes into a new phase. Because of the cultural revolution through which mankind is presently passing, teachers in the Church must be more than usually open to new formulations and slow to condemn views that are seriously proposed by prudent and committed Christians. Flexibility is not the antithesis of structure, but the condition of preserving it in a changing world
The craft of theology : from symbol to system by Avery Dulles( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avery Dulles's theological career has spanned one of the most creative and confusing periods in the history of the church. With the goal of integrating new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas, with the net effect of a loss of coherence. It is Fr. Dulles's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart that what seems false and dangerous to one school seems almost self-evident to another. Theologians lack a common language, common goals, and common norms. Exploring the possibilities for greater consensus, The Craft of Theology illustrates how a "post-critical" theology can draw on the riches of Scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the church in new contexts. Fr. Dulles discusses the freedom of theology within the university and sets forth principles for a fresh dialogue with philosophy, the sciences, and other Christian churches

11 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

18 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian theology has from its beginnings pointed to faith as the necessary path by which humans may enter into a saving relationship with God.

Church and society : the Laurence J. McGinley lectures, 1988-2007 by Avery Dulles( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading theologians of our time, Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., has written and lectured on a wide range of topics across his distinguished career, and for a wide range of audiences. Integrating faith and scholarship, he has created a rich body of work that, in the words of one observer, is "both faithful to Catholic tradition and fresh in its engagement with the contemporary world."" "Here, brought together for the first time in one volume, are the talks Cardinal Dulles has given twice each year since the Laurence J. McGinley Lectures were initiated in 1988, conceived broadly as a forum on Church and society. The result is a diverse collection that reflects the breadth of his thinking and engages with many of the most important - and difficult - religious issues of our day." "Organized chronologically, the lectures are often responses to timely issues, such as the relationship between religion and politics, a topic he treated in the last weeks of the presidential campaign of 1992. Other lectures take up questions surrounding human rights, faith and evolution, forgiveness, the death penalty, the doctrine of religious freedom, the population of hell, and a whole array of theological subjects, many of which intersect with culture and politics."--BOOK JACKET
