Systematic theology : a Roman Catholic approach by Thomas P Rausch( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematic theology seeks to understand and render more intelligible the central doctrines of faith and to show how they are related to each other. It tries to demonstrate how these doctrines are rooted in Scripture and develop in the history of the church; most important, it strives to more adequately express and sometimes reinterpret the church's doctrinal tradition, always in the interest of better communicating the mystery of salvation and bringing it into a dialogue with culture. The present text is intended to be concise and accessible, an introduction that explores basic themes in Catholic systematic theology from a biblical, historical, and contemporary perspective, always aware of today's theological pluralism. -- Provided by publisher

Reconciling faith and reason : apologists, evangelists, and theologians in a divided church by Thomas P Rausch( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pope John Paul II's 1998 encyclical Fides et ratio reaffirmed the compatibility of faith and reason. Yet Catholic theology is too often divided between a conservative apologetics which risks becoming a Catholic fundamentalism and an academic theology cut off from the life and faith of the Church. How can Catholics find "common ground" in a divided Church, teaching and reflecting on their faith in a way that is at once critical, faithful to the Catholic tradition, and truly evangelical? In addressing this question, Father Rausch looks at divisive questions of theological method, Scripture and doctrinal development, sexuality, liturgy, and evangelization."--Jacket

Being Catholic in a culture of choice by Thomas P Rausch( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What will the next generation of Catholics be like? Will they have a strong sense of their identity as Catholic Christians, or will they reflect a more generic Christian identity, without the distinctives associated with Catholicism?Some social commentators suggest that the Catholic identity of young adult Catholics is in jeopardy, with a less ecclesial faith, a thin commitment to the institutional church, and alack of familiarity with the Catholic tradition. Others argue that there are signs that a new generation of younger Catholics is emerging, not al of whom fall easily into the liberal/conservative categories, though many Catholics over fifty tend to dismiss them as conservative, neo-conservative, or even restorationist.Thomas Rausch's book examines a number of recent studies of young adult Catholics as well as different ways that being Catholic is developed and supported, from the Catholic imagination to a reexamination of Christian origins in the light of the charges made in The Da Vinci Code, to the domestic church and Catholic colleges and universities. -- Provided by publisher

Faith, hope, and charity : Benedict XVI on the theological virtues by Thomas P Rausch( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pope Benedict's approach to encyclicals is different from that of his predecessor Pope John Paul II. He is more inclusive in his sources, drawing on non-Christian authors, philosophers, and novelists among them, as well as more traditional works. His encyclicals also differ from his typical theological works; they are more pastoral, at times even conversational, inviting the reader into the mystery of the three theological virtues that frame and inform the Christian life. Deus caritas est explores a God who is both reason (logos) and love, and who loves us passionately, reclaiming eros as a descriptor of God's love. Spe salvi examines the relation between faith and hope, arguing that without faith and its vision of God's justice, hope too easily substitutes a secular idea of progress that often leads to atheism. Lumen fidei, drafted for his successor, Pope Francis, focuses on faith as a light flowing from a personal relationship with God. The book notes how the three encyclicals were received and concludes with reflections on Pope Benedict's theological legacy. (Publisher)
This is our faith : an introduction to Catholicism by Thomas P Rausch( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Divided into four parts, This Is Our Faith outlines the Catholic faith in a very accessible and clear format. Based around the Apostles' Creed, the first three parts of the book focus on the belief in the one God, in Jesus, God's only Son, and in the Holy Spirit, and they reflect on this belief in light of the Scriptures and Catholic teaching. The final part of the book focuses on how Catholicism has developed through the Second Vatican Council and the vision of subsequent popes. This Is Our Faith concludes with an important chapter on the current global situation, which the church must embrace if the faith is going to retain significance throughout the century."--
