1 Review
An introductory text that shows that reason and Christian belief are compatible and mutually supportive, and that both can lead to the truth.

The central aim ofReason, Faith, and Traditionis to show that reason and Christian belief are in fact not contradictory, but are simply two different orientations, two different ways of looking at the world, and that both can lead to truth. In the end they cannot be separated.

Here students see that a faith-based approach to theology is wholly compatible with a historical and critical approach. Topics covered include faith and reason; science and religion; Revelation; Scripture; the Trinity; Christian anthropology; Christology; the Last Things and Salvation; and the Roman Catholic Church.

  • Provides an overview of Christian and Catholic Theology.
  • Equips students with the basic skills they need to begin answering theological questions on their own.
  • Lays the foundation for deeper study.
