Overview

Ground yourself in the fundamentals of theology with the work of Christian history’s most influential minds. Richard Viladesau and Mark Massa have collected key readings in classical theology, believing “the classics are often more intelligible and more interesting than their expositors” and “are often more relevant to life than the most recent academic fashions.” Among the gathered voices are Augustine, Aquinas, Anselm, Pascal, Karl Rahner, Karl Barth, Martin Luther King, Jr., Pope John Paul II, and many more. Veladesau and Massa also employ the poetic voices of John Donne, George Herbert, Emily Dickinson, and others to help express challenging metaphysical issues.

Foundations of Theological Study covers the major themes of an introductory course in theology. Viladesau and Massa consider conventional religious experiences, as well as more unconventional ones, such as Thomas Merton’s. Utilizing the classics of the Western tradition and a wide variety of modern approaches, they consider the problem of God, the person and work of Jesus, and historical theology, allowing the reader to see how Christianity has been lived out historically.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Connect this sourcebook with a massive library of classic primary sources in theology and philosophy.
