Handbook of Catholic Theology

This volume, a nuanced introduction to the core concepts in Catholic theology, features 337 entries. With helpful tables and indices, this volume represents a richer, deeper treatment of many issues than is found in other dictionaries of theology.

In a time of change and transitions, it becomes important to know both traditional as well as new categories of theology and to relate contemporary theological issues to classical problems. This helpful handbook concentrates on Catholic systematic theology and thereby fulfills an urgent need.

“The Handbook of Catholic Theology seeks to present an objective and balanced introduction to the basic topics and categories of catholic theology, for students of theology and for the educated adult who in reading theology comes across terms with which he or she is not familiar. By concentrating on Roman Catholic systematic theology, it fills an urgent need.”
Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, from the Preface
