Romano Guardini : a precursor of Vatican II by Robert Anthony Krieg( )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Romano Guardini: A Precursor of Vatican II, Robert Krieg tells the story of one of the most creative theologians in the twentieth century, who anticipated Vatican II's commitment to read "the signs of the times." No other volume in the English language offers such a complete portrait of Guardini and his world." "Exploring the context in which Guardini learned and taught, Krieg introduces us to his pastoral leadership, particularly in the liturgical and youth movements. Drawing on the more than 75 books and 100 articles written by Guardini, this book then examines the recurring major themes of his theology: divine revelation as God's self-disclosure, the church as Christian community, liturgy as play in God's presence, literature as expression of religious experience, Nazism as negation of personal existence, Jesus Christ as mediator, and Christian acceptance of modernity." "Although he never intended to promote an ecumenical council of reform, Guardini's career-long commitment to both Judeo-Christian wisdom and intellectual exchange with contemporary thought resulted in his becoming widely regarded as a major precursor of the Second Vatican Council. Respected theologians such as Karl Rahner, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger have acknowledged their indebtedness to him."--BOOK JACKET
Karl Adam : Catholicism in German culture by Robert Anthony Krieg( )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last chapter appraises Adam's reliance on German neoromanticism for his "theology of life." Church leaders, historians, and theologians will appreciate this stimulating case study on Catholicism and inculturation, which locates Adam's efforts at theological renewal in relation to both Rome's defensive stance against modernity and Berlin's nationalism during the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich
Catholic theologians in Nazi Germany by Robert Anthony Krieg( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses a range of religious scholars, but focuses on five major theologians who were born during the Kulturkampf, came to maturity and international recognition during the Hitler era, and had an influence on Catholicism in the English-speaking world. While three were sympathetic to the Third Reich in varying degrees and the other two were publicly critical of the new regime, the book takes a look of each of their stances regarding the Third Reich's anti-Jewish propaganda
Story-shaped Christology : the role of narratives in identifying Jesus Christ by Robert Anthony Krieg( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letters and writings from prison by Franz Jägerstätter( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franz Jèagerstèatter, an Austrian farmer, devoted husband and father, and devout Catholic, was executed in 1943 for refusing to serve in the Nazi army. Before taking this stand Jèagerstèatter had consulted both his pastor and his local bishop, who instructed him to do his duty and to obey the law - an instruction that violated his conscience. For many years Jèagerstèatter's solitary witness was honored by the Catholic peace movement, while viewed with discomfort by many of his fellow Austrians. Now, with his beatification in 2007, his example has been embraced by the universal church
Treasure in the field : salvation in the Bible and in our lives by Robert Anthony Krieg( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to say that God offers salvation to humanity? What is this salvation, and how can we become more conscious of it in our lives? These are the questions that Robert Krieg faces in Treasure in the Field. While his intent is certainly to impart information and ideas found in Scripture, church teaching, and theology, it is also to illumine our own experiences. Krieg retrieves the Bible's teaching on salvation and expresses it in contemporary terms. Drawing deeply from Scripture, he defines salvation as God's gift of personal identity, of wholeness. In this perspective, God calls us not to invent ourselves but to discover ourselves as God intends us to be. Those who gradually make this discovery become grateful recipients who give themselves and their talents for the well-being of other people and creation. Robert A. Krieg is professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame. He is the editor and translator of Romano Guardini: Spiritual Writings, as well as the author of Romano Guardini: A Precursor of Vatican II; Karl Adam: Catholicism in German Culture; and Story-Shaped Christology. His work has also appeared in America, Theological Studies, Worship, and many other journals

Romano Guardini : proclaiming the sacred in a modern world( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romano Guardini: Proclaiming the Sacred in a Modern World, the first formal conference on the life and work of Romano Guardini ever held in North America, took place on October 7 and 8, 1994, at the University of Notre Dame. Scholars, students and friends of Guardini and his work gathered to commemorate (a bit late) the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death in 1968 and to remember all that he had done to prepare the church for the Second Vatican Council. More importantly, though, they came to learn how to pursue Guardini's vision of church and liturgy in our own day." "This book collects the scholarly papers and the personal remembrances that were offered at that conference by Lawrence S. Cunningham, Kathleen Hughes, Robert A. Krieg, Heinz R. Kuehn, Regina Kuehn, Gertrud Mueller Nelson, Thomas F. O'Meara, Arno Schilson and Albert K. Wimmer. Book jacket."--Jacket
The theologian as narrator : a study of Karl Barth on the divine perfections : a dissertation by Robert Anthony Krieg( Book )

5 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I believe : the promise of the creed by Francis( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawn from his writings, interviews, and homilies, I Believe provides an intimate window on the Pope's personal faith, and an incomparable introduction to the gospel. Organized around the principal themes of the Apostle's Creed, these short readings make it clear that the Creed is more than a list of dogmatic propositions: it is an invitation to encounter the living God in the deepest place in our hearts. And that encounter inspires us to action: to give witness, to practice greater charity, to live in the truth. The Pope's words are also a challenge to meet the God of surprises, who makes all things new, who accompanies us on our journey. For anyone seeking a more authentic life, this is a book to carry and treasure
Romano Guardini : un precursor by Robert Anthony Krieg( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Spanish and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spiritual writings by Walter Kasper( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Kasper, a German bishop and theologian, has long been regarded as a vital expositor of the gospel and one of the leading voices of church renewal and reform. Named a cardinal in 2001, Kasper served as president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and represented the Church in advancing Jewish-Christian relations. He assumed an especially important role under Pope Francis, who publicly endorsed Kasper's book on Mercy, thus signaling a principle theme of his papacy. This volume reflects the major themes of Kasper's long career. Given the breadth of his work, the selections here on God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church, Ecumenism, and Christian Hope, represent a veritable introduction to the Christian faith.

Bless all who receive these ashes, keep us faithful to Lent's discipline by Robert Anthony Krieg( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the side of the poor : the theology of liberation by Gustavo Gutiérrez( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For many years the theology of liberation, which emerged from Latin America in the 1970's, was viewed with suspicion in Rome. It was the subject of a critical notification from the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and many of its leading proponents were disciplined or silenced. Now, an historic exchange between Gustavo Gutierrez, author of the seminal work A Theology of Liberation, and Cardinal Muller, the current Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Fiath, signals a new chapter in this ongoing dialogue. Cardinal Muller, a former student of Gutierrez who spent many summers working in Peru, writes with deep feeling and conviction about the contributions of liberation theology to church teaching--particularly in articulating the preferential option for the poor. In his contributions, Gutierrez lays out the essential ideas of liberation theology, its ecclesial location, and its fresh enunciation of the gospel for our time
