For many Christians traditional theology is a rather dull, if not a dead subject. This neither proves that modern people have lost their awareness of God nor their interest in theology; it merely indicates that theologians, by and large, have been speaking in their own tongue to fellow theologians and both what and how they have been saying it seem rather irrelevant to the educated Christian. This is particularly true of the doctrine of grace, especially when presented in the garb of scholasticism which overemphasizes the rational at the expense of the empirical. This book is a new beginning; it is an invitation to explore and develop new perspectives and to make a focal doctrine more vital and more intelligible to our times. In explaining grace - "God's loving presence and [human] transformation in it" - the author displays a profound understanding of the religious moods, culture and needs of our time, as well as an expert knowledge of scriptural, patristic, theological and modern ideas on the subject. Here is a relevant, seminal and eminently readable study for all those interested in a vibrant theology for today and tomorrow.

Matthias Scheeben was a nineteenth century theologian whose writing forged a new creative synthesis of the teaching of the Fathers and of the scholastics. Scheeben's work had a decisive influence on later Catholic theologians such as Hans Urs von Balthasar. His primary theme is the nuptial union of God and the created order through the Incarnation, a marriage of heaven and earth that begins in the conception of Christ in the womb of the virgin Mary. Mary, therefore, is the temple in which God and humankind are reconciled. This and all that flows from it and preceded it by way of preparation is the subject-matter of his work Mariology. He draws together the teaching on the Incarnation, on deification, on the Marian dogmas, sacramental theology, and ecclesiology in a truly beautiful work. Originally published in two volumes, the entire work is gathered here in a single volume for the first time.

For members of the Carthusian order, prayer is not just something that is done at certain times of day: it is in fact the vital respiration of their faith. This third volume of novice conferences gives us access once again to the Carthusians' profound wisdom, as we share the initiation of a group of young monks into the practice of prayer. Interior Prayer contains the Carthusians' traditional doctrine on prayer - from its very beginnings to the simplicity of its highest forms. Far from being abstract and theoretical, we learn about the prayer process by sharing in the novices' concrete spiritual journey. Their problems and difficulties, and the many pitfalls they encounter on the way, are expressed in an ongoing dialogue with their guide who relates to each one individually.
