Herbert McCabe, who died in 2001, was one of the most intelligent Roman Catholic thinkers of the twentieth century. An influence on philosophers such as Anthony Kenny and Alasdair MacIntyre he was also befriended by poets and literary critics such as Seamus Heaney and Terry Eagleton. Equally at home in philosophy and theology, he despised jargon and intellectual posturing as a substitute for reason and argument. At the time of his death, he left a wealth of unpublished material- so outstanding in its quality and originality that it is surprising that it was never published in book form. This i
God and evil in the theology of St Thomas Aquinas by Herbert McCabe( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbert McCabe was one of the most original and creative theologians of recent years. Continuum has published numerous volumes of unpublished typescripts left behind by him following his untimely death in 2001. This book is the sixth to appear. McCabe was deeply immersed in the philosophical theology of St Thomas Aquinas and was responsible in part for the notable revival of interest in the thought of Aquinas in our time. Here he tackles the problem of evil by focusing and commenting on what Aquinas said about it. What should we mean by words such as 'good', 'bad', 'being', 'cause', 'creation', and 'God'? These are McCabe's main questions. In seeking to answer them he demonstrates why it cannot be shown that evil disproves God's existence. He also explains how we can rightly think of evil in a world made by God. McCabe's approach to God and evil is refreshingly unconventional given much that has been said about it of late. Yet it is also very traditional. It will interest and inform anyone seriously interested in the topic"--Provided by publisher

God, Christ and us by Herbert McCabe( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbert McCabe was highly regarded as a philosopher and theologian. Yet he was also a brilliant preacher. He always preached in a lively and witty way - his style has been compared to that of G.K. Chesterton." "Here is a collection of his previously unpublished sermons and spiritual addresses. Never platitudinous or short of ideas, they are filled with questions, arguments, and solid intellectual content. The major influence on McCabe was the Bible, but he was also a devoted admirer of the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, whose ideas saturated his public speaking. From the Bible, McCabe derived the notion of God leading us to happiness through the work of grace and through the life and teachings of Jesus. From Aquinas, McCabe derived a hatred of idolatry, a powerful sense of the incomprehensibility of God and a recognition that we depend on God's gracious revelation of himself rather than what we can work out on the basis of our limited understanding. A presiding theme in this book is that we are saved because of the life of Someone fully human."--BOOK JACKET
The new creation by Herbert McCabe( Book )

7 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A reissue of McCabe's study of the sacraments and what it means to live in the Church and the Church's world, The New Creation explores how human beings can reach real unity with one another and the world around them through the Spirit of Christ. The New Creation engages with themes like the Word of God, the Son of God, the meaning of community and communion and the sacraments as mysteries of human unity; the place of physical healing in the redeemed world and the Old-Testament and pagan religious foundations upon which modern Christianity is built. There is a humane simplicity in McCabe's insights into all of these subjects, similar to that found in the Gospels, which provides the reader with clarity on inherently complex theological issues.'Christ is present to us in so far as we are present to each other' as McCabe tells us and this book plainly and vividly encourages us to find the company of both."--Publisher's description

The McCabe reader by Herbert McCabe( Book )

Herbert McCabe OP was one of the most intelligent Roman Catholic thinkers of the 20th century, whose writings have enjoyed enormous and welcome success. A significant influence on philosophers such as Anthony Kenny and Alasdair McIntyre, McCabe also counted amongst his friends Seamus Heaney and Terry Eagleton, and moved amongst the literary elite. His wide personal interests are reflected in his writings, which cover a broad range of topics. In this reader we glimpse an insight into the workings of a brilliant mind occupied by topics including the philosophy of God and Christian doctrine, ethics and moral theology, the problem of evil, the philosophical theology of St Thomas Aquinas, the traditional catholic concern for prayer, liturgy, Mary and St Dominic. Further musings reflect on issues that interested McCabe the most - philosophy of God, Christology, fundamental and sacramental theology, and ethics. - from publisher
