Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Octavo 0567291812 Paperback Paperback. From Newman to Congar. Crease to front cover. How does doctrine develop? This is the theme of the book-the way in which the Church continuously discovers and liberates ancient truth in new ways from the original Gospel. Beginning with its classical exponent, John Henry Newman, the author traces the story of an idea through the vicissitudes of the early twentieth century Modernist crisis, the Neo-Scholastic reaction, the more historically-minded orthodoxy of Blondel, Rousselot and de Lubac, to the pre-conciliar theology of Rahner, Schillebeeckx and Congar. Their work was reflected in the animaadversions of the Second Vatican Council, but since then, in T. S. Eliot's words, the centre has not held. In a 'retrospect and prospect' the book explains why, and offers some concise prescription for the stailisation of Catholic theology in the future. 290 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books, and all types of Academic Literature. )
