An introduction to Christian faith by Walter Kasper( Book )

44 editions published between 1972 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an incisive yet comprehensive introduction to the nature and problems of Christian faith in the modern world. Throughout the author shows that he is able to exercise scholarship with an acute understanding of the difficulties of ordinary Christians in a technological age. He never reduces the essentials of Christian tradition but shows how the fundamental tenets of faith can be held responsibly and proudly in the face of rationalist and philosophical criticism as well as the tragic disappointments of an anguished age. Introduces us to Christian faith as something always conscious of the difficulties of everyday practice, always avoiding the two betrayals of conservatism and radicalism. His message is not one of confusion and uncertain experiment but of trust and hope. He examines the situation, location, truth, act, content, ecclesiality and historicity of faith, shows its saving assurance, anchors it in Christology, and reminds us of its direction to the one future of God

The Petrine ministry : Catholics and Orthodox in dialogue : academic symposium held at the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a unique insight into the contemporary thinking of established Catholic and Orthodox scholars on the theme that is at the heart of the ecumenical dialogue: the ministry of the Bishop of Rome." "This collection of papers has its origin in the encyclical letter Ut unum sint (no. 95) and the request of Pope John Paul II to study the question of the Petrine ministry with other Christians with a view to "seeking - together, of course - the forms in which this ministry may accomplish a service of love recognized by all concerned." After the promulgation of the encyclical in 1995, the theme of the Petrine ministry in its implications for dialogue with the other churches and ecclesial communities resonated throughout the ecumenical community and in studies, conferences and courses at institutes and research centers, focusing on the theological and historical aspects of the issue. The symposium presented here, organized by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, is aimed at furthering study of the role of the Bishop of Rome in the perspective of the search for Christian unity. Catholic experts and delegates representing a range of Orthodox churches took part in the closed-door symposium, at which eight speakers presented papers, dealing with each theme from the Catholic and Orthodox points of view."--Jacket
