Epiphany: A Theological Introduction to Catholicism [Second Edition] (Hardcover) By Aidan Nichols

Aidan Nichols presents the Catholic faith as a unique source of illumination for the good, the true, and the beautiful. To his mind, that faith is destined to be, and humbly offered as, light for all... More > peoples. For it was as “light” that that the babe Jesus Christ was hailed by the aged prophet Symeon when he was presented in the Jerusalem Temple. The Church has applied the term “epiphany”—shining forth—to his first, pre-verbal contact with the Gentiles, as his mother held him out to the “magi,” the representatives of the non-Jewish nations. Thus the title of this book. This is, as Nichols writes, “a consciously non-liberal theology, but not, I think, an illiberal one, for its subject is the generosity of God in his revealing Word and sanctifying Spirit. . . It is not a neutral work, since it aims to arouse a 'Christian maximalism' and the boldness to seek in Catholicism’s theological tradition inspiration for present and future.” This second edition corrects some errors in the original.< Less

More > textual evidence of historical events. By these, he illustrates the early authoritative role expected of or taken by Rome’s bishop at pivotal moments in early Church history. This volume offers much substance to those interested in the question of papal prerogatives. Chapman argues in favor of Catholic claims, but does so with such care as a historian that his work has received high approval even from such an eminence as the famed Anglican historian Henry Chadwick who, in his own book on the history of the early Church, saw fit to recommend Chapman’s work to readers interested in the question. There have been many successors to Chapman but few, if any, have engaged with precisely the matters that he discusses in such detail.

He... More > discusses such difficult problems as Christ's freedom and impeccability, the intrinsically infinite value of His merits and satisfaction, His predestination and ours, and the reconciliation of His Passion's extreme sorrow with the supreme happiness He experienced in the summit of His soul. All is referred to the plenitude of His grace. This plenitude caused the beatific vision in the summit of His soul while also prompting His ardent love as priest and victim, so that He willed to be overwhelmed with grief and to die a perfect holocaust. In all, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange upholds Christ's unity inasmuch as He is one personal Being, although He has two really distinct and infinitely different natures. Christ's Person is the sole principle of all His theandric operations. At the book's end is a compendium on Mariology.< Less
