The letter on apologetics and History and dogma by Maurice Blondel( Book )

11 editions published between 1964 and 1995 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of French philosopher Maurice Blondel lies behind most of the controversies in twentieth-century French Catholic thought, and bore its fruit in the Second Vatican Council. Recognized in Europe as one of the outstanding figures in the Catholic revival that began at the turn of the century, Blondel was described by Pope John Paul II as "one of the first to discern what was at stake in the Modernist crisis." Published together here are two of Blondel's most significant texts. The Letter on Apologetics (1896) is a key statement on the possibility and meaning of Christian philosophy. History and Dogma (1904), written in response to the Modernist crisis, is an important contribution to the notion of tradition, seeing it neither in terms of historicism nor as something mechanical, but as a living synthesis. Introductory essays by Alexander Dru and Illtyd Trethowan provide essential historical and biographical background as well as an account of the philosophical and theological principles of Blondel's thought. -- Back cover
The basis of belief by Illtyd Trethowan( Book )

Absolute value: a study in Christian theism by Illtyd Trethowan( Book )

11 editions published between 1970 and 1980 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author claims to adopt a strictly empirical method, but he also claims that human experience is metaphysical. Christian thinkers, he holds, too often hesitate to admit that we have knowledge not just of God's effects, but of God himself in his effects. That God is indescribable is as it should be. There is too much talk about God -- whereas a knowledge of him can be assured only by bringing the mind to bear upon the transcendent elements in our experience, the meeting place of God and man. From this point of view, the moral evidence for God (or rather of God) proves to be fundamental. This volume contains an outline of the traditional Christian metaphysics, overlaid by scholasticism and renewed for our time by (especially) Maurice Blondel, in which many theological emphases now current can be reconciled. What we need is not less metaphysics but more and better metaphysics. And the dividing line between metaphysics and mysticism, as Gabriel Marcel has said, is not easy to draw. Also this work contains detailed critiques of a good many recent writers. [Book jacket]
Is there a Christian philosophy? by Maurice Nédoncelle( Book )

7 editions published in 1960 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are Christianity and philosophy intellectually incompatible? Does philosophical inquiry end at the border of religion, or is there a common ground between them? The author presents a broad panorama of Christian thought to show the various historical attempts to form a Christian philosophy. After examining Christian thought as philosophy, he concludes that no attempt at a Christian philosophical system has been able to achieve the level of universality of Christianity itself. The great strivings of the Fathers, the Scholastics, the Renaissance humanists, the rationalists and the modern-day existential thinkers have all fallen short of the religious completeness of Christianity. The author believes that if the ultimate Christian philosophy ha not, as yet, been expressed and verbally elucidated, this does not indicate that the search for a formulation of a Christian philosophy is futile; rather it points to a need for further effort in the seemingly boundless intellectual future

The Christian mystery : from pagan myth to Christian mysticism by Louis Bouyer( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most gifted and internationally renowned theologians of our time here explores the importance of mystery and mysticism in the Christian tradition. He begins with a historical look at myth and mystery in pagan, Hellenistic and Classical cults, and the subsequent development in Christian mysticism and spirituality. From myth and mystery he moved to mysticism in the Christian West up to the present. Christian tradition is compared to Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist mystic experiences. Throughout, Bouyer seeks to focus on the power and meaning of these phenomena in their place in the moder
