Models of revelation by Avery Dulles ( Book )
24 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book the author explores the doctrine at the very center of Christianity: that Christianity is based on the word of God as given to the church. Following the format of his earlier Models of the Church, Dulles derives five models of the character of this much-neglected theme of revelation. He considers revelation as doctrine, as history, as inner experience, as dialectical presence, and as new awareness. - Back cover
The Catholicity of the church by Avery Dulles ( Book )
26 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nearly all Christians profess allegiance to the holy catholic church, but the meaning of the term "catholic" is widely disputed. This book investigates the historical use of the word and the various aspects of catholicity. Beginning with the word's divine source in Christ as "the first-born of all creation," Dulles goes on to discuss such topics as the "catholic principle," Catholicism as a specific ecclesial type, and the possibility of a "Protestant Catholicism." He concludes by asking how, given the current "parochial" appearance of Christianity, any Christian church can plausibly claim to be catholic

The craft of theology : from symbol to system by Avery Dulles ( Book )
14 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Avery Dulles's theological career has spanned one of the most creative and confusing periods in the history of the church. With the goal of integrating new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas, with the net effect of a loss of coherence. It is Fr. Dulles's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart that what seems false and dangerous to one school seems almost self-evident to another. Theologians lack a common language, common goals, and common norms. Exploring the possibilities for greater consensus, The Craft of Theology illustrates how a "post-critical" theology can draw on the riches of Scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the church in new contexts. Fr. Dulles discusses the freedom of theology within the university and sets forth principles for a fresh dialogue with philosophy, the sciences, and other Christian churches
