Avery Dulles's theological career has spanned one of the most creative and confusing periods in the history of the church. With the goal of integrating new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas, with the net effect of a loss of coherence. It is Fr. Dulles's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart that what seems false and dangerous to one school seems almost self-evident to another. Theologians lack a common language, common goals, and common norms. Exploring the possibilities for greater consensus, The Craft of Theology illustrates how a "post-critical" theology can draw on the riches of Scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the church in new contexts. Fr. Dulles discusses the freedom of theology within the university and sets forth principles for a fresh dialogue with philosophy, the sciences, and other Christian churches.From Library Journal:
Dulles maintains that there is a lack of "a common language, common goals, and common norms" in contemporary theology, and "that the neo-scholasticism of the recent past is no longer adequate for the present day" because it "does not do justice to the personalist, symbolic, and mystical dimensions of faith." Dulles explores the sources of theology, scripture, tradition, and the church teaching authority, and discusses theological dissent and the relationships among theology. Throughout, Dulles seeks greater theological consensus stemming from a wider theological community. Seminary and large academic libraries will want this work by a major contemporary theologian.
