Chalice of God

A Systematic Theology in Outline
  • By Op J. C. Aidan Nicholas
$15.99
($18.95)

Over the course of a distinguished theological career, Aidan Nichols has produced an array of masterful contributions to the fields of systematic theology, ecclesiology, theological aesthetics, ecumenism, liturgy, and Scripture. Now, in"Chalice of God," he attempts to synthesize a lifetime of research, teaching, and scholarly reflection in a book that is both rigorously academic and intensely personal. This is Nichols' theological manifesto for the twenty-first century.

Drawing together the insights of high scholasticism, the mid-twentieth-century "ressourcement" movement, a holistic reading of Scripture typical of the best patristic exegesis, and the liturgical tradition and iconography of both East and West, he presents a sound architecture for contemporary Catholic theology. "Chalice of God" promises to enrich and challenge those who engage in the enterprise of theology for years to come.

"Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P., of Blackfriars, Cambridge, is a lecturer at Cambridge University. He was awarded the title "Sacrae Theologiae Magister "by the Dominican order in 2003. His many important works include "The Shape of Catholic Theology: An Introduction to its Sources, Principles and History; Epiphany: A Theological Introduction to Catholicism; Lovely, like Jerusalem: The Fulfillment of the Old Testament in Christ and the Church; The Thought of Pope Benedict XVI: An Introduction to the Theology of Joseph Ratzinger;" and, most recently, " Lost in Wonder: Essays on Liturgy and the Arts."
