A Manual of Catholic Theology is Joseph Wilhelm and Thomas B. Scannell’s classic two-volume English adaptation of Joseph Scheeben’s Dogmatik. In his preface to the Manual, Henry Edward quotes St. Anselm, saying, “. . . the right order of things requires that we should first believe the deep things of the Christian faith before we presume to discuss them by reason, so it seems to me to be negligence if . . . we do not study to understand what we believe.” A Manual of Catholic Theology addresses this negligence by scientifically examining the first principles of faith. Originally begun by Scheeben in 1873, A Manual of Catholic Theology takes the fundamentals of the Christian faith and sorts through them with a fine philosophical knife. Volume one covers the epistemology of faith and the nature of God, while volume two covers the narrative of the Gospel: fall, redemption, grace, the Church, and the new creation.
