On the Theology of Death
The author treats from the theological point of view of the nature of the Christian's death and of the special mode of death called martyrdom. He is concerned with the opening up of new perspectives in older problems, striving to formulate new and more fruitful concepts for the penetration of one of the most important dimensions of Christian belief and experience. Writing with the great care necessary in theological discussion yet abstaining from technical terminology and jargon, he conveys a sense of the intellectual urgency and the exploratory nature of the inquiry. This book forms part of a series of short treatises entitle Quaestiones Disputatae in which some of the more urgent open questions of the Christian faith are discussed by eminent Catholic writers.
