Avery Dulles (Author)

McGinley Professor of Religion and Society at Fordham University. His many books include The Splendor of Faith and The Craft of Theology.

  1. "I would highly recommend this small but packed volume to anyone who wishes to understand what theologians do, and should do, in today’s church."
    --Bernard Cooke, America
  2. "It is easy to commend this book to those concerned with questions of theological method; Avery Dulles sets forth his presuppositions with admirable clarity. It is also easy to recommend this book to Roman Catholics concerned with the state of their church. I want to commend it, however, to Protestant ministers concerned for the future of mainline denominations. To see our problems through moderate, authority respecting Roman Catholic eyes can be instructive indeed."
    --Christian Century
  3. "This is a splendid book, nourishing for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It clearly shows our contemporary situation on a number of fronts, offering constructive directions for the future."
    --Reformed Review
  4. “Clear, balanced treatment of issues, nuanced presentation of the Catholic tradition, and illuminating, critical use of models for analysis. Highly recommended . . .”
    --Religious Studies Review
