John Henry Newman (1801-90) was a major figure in 19th-century religious history.

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
"The life and work of John Henry Newman were dominated by questions concerning the nature of Christian faith and the way in which it comes to expression in history. In this collection of essays, eight leading scholars examine the theological, philosophical, historical, literary and spiritual dimensions of Newman's understanding of faith, and reflect on the way in which his thought related to contemporary concerns and interests in their disciplines. The themes discussed include the relationship between faith and reason, the place of doctrine in Christian life, the believer in the church, and the autobiographical significance of Newman's treatment of faith in his novels. Like its predecessor, Newman and the Word, this collection aims to provide a critical reflection on the relevance of Newman's thought for today." -- Book jacket
Newman and truth by Oxford International Newman Conference( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 libraries worldwide
"John Henry Newman (1801-1890) chose as his epitaph the words, 'Ex umbris et imaginibus in veritaten' ('Out of shadows and images into the truth'). These words are more than the expression of Newman's hope for the future. They summarize his lifelong quest to penetrate ever more deeply into the mystery of God's relationship to humankind and the ways in which men and women are able to gain insight into that relationship. This collection of papers reflects on Newman's understanding of the nature of truth's survival in the contemporary world. At the same time, it provides a critical reflection on the continuing significance of Newman's thought. The collection includes contributions by Colin Barr, Michael J. Buckley, Brian Daley, Paul J. Griffiths, Keith Hanley, Ian Ker, Terrence Merrigan, and John Milbank."--Jacket

The contested legacy of Vatican II : lessons and prospects ( Book )
5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 53 libraries worldwide
The Second Vatican Council was the most important event in the Roman Catholic Church in the twentieth century. In line with Pope John XXIII's desire for aggiornamento it searched for ways to enable the Church to meet the challenges of the times and thus prepare a future for Christian faith and life. This search for renewal met with opposition during the Council and its reception process up to the current day. In this volume authors known for their research on and familiarity with the Council's history and its reception reflect on the (non- )reception of Vatican II in the Roman Catholic Church. Paying attention to both the wishes of the majority of the Council fathers and the often blocked implementation of their decisions during the post-Vatican II period, they make clear that the freedom of speech that existed during the Council soon was put aside, partly because those who where opposed to the conciliar developments remained in charge after the Council. At the same time, the contributors to this volume are of the opinion that Vatican II and its texts continue to offer much inspiration for the life of the faithful today. 0According to Leo Declerck, Etienne Fouilloux, Peter Hunermann, Joseph Komonchak, Mathijs Lamberigts, Nicholas Lash, Gilles Routhier, and Christoph Theobald, "Gaudium et spes" thus continue to prevail over grief and anxiety, too often used as instruments for a 'revision' of Vatican II. This book offers both keen insights into the history of the Council and its intuitions, and the contested but still needed implementation of it
The shaping of tradition : context and normativity ( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Concerning the normativity of the Christian tradition, there remains much to be said in a theological context today. In the modern period, from the debates that (still) rage over the reception of the second Vatican council to the embeddedness of tradition in Orthodox positions, from firmly rooted national-ecclesial traditions to the challenges of various contextual and postmodern theologies, our understanding of tradition and its normativizing legacy continue to take center stage in our ongoing global theological conversations, though the exact stakes are often unclear and much in need of further examination. We are faced at present with an ever increasing rigor and depth in terms of theologians' willingness to confront the relationship between history, tradition and normativity - the great shaping forces of the Christian life, and ones which often go unexamined

The past, present, and future of theologies of interreligious dialogue ( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
The Past, Present and Future of Theology of Interreligious Dialogue' brings together several of the most widely regarded specialists who have contributed to theological reflection on religious diversity and interreligious encounter. The chapters are united by the consistent theme of the obligation to engage with the challenges that emerge from the tension between the doctrinal tradition(s) of Christianity and the need to reconsider them in light of and in response to the fact of religious otherness. As a whole, these reflections are motivated by the desire to bring together a significant selection of different theological approaches that have been developed and appropriated in order to engage with religious difference in the past and present, as well as to suggest possibilities for the future. This confluence of perspectives reveals the complexity of theological reflection on religious diversity, and gives some indication of future challenges that must be acknowledged, and perhaps successfully met, in the ongoing attempt to address a universal reality in light of traditional doctrinal particularities and cultural concerns
