Edward Schillebeeckx ranks as one of the greatest theologians in the renewal of the Roman Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council. His constant concern is helping people living in modern, secular societies come to a deeper appreciation of Christian faith. His monumental trilogy in Chistology, his concern for experience as a starting point for theology, and his sensitivity to the plight of human suffering have earned him a place as a major influence on people who struggle to say "yes" to the truth of the Gospel today.
This volume presents a clear introduction to all the major aspects of the many-faceted work of Schillebeeckx. The first edition was hailed as "an indispensable handbook of Schillebeeckx's theology." This revised edition includes an entirely new essay on God and creation, and presents a never before published reflection of Schillebeeckx speaking about God today.
This book, edited by two of the foremost authorities on his thought, will help college and seminary students better understand this important thinker, and serve for all interested readers as a clear introduction to the complex, but compelling theological work of one of the most influential Christian thinkers of our time.
