Product Description

Edited by Robert Barron, Scott W. Hahn, and James R. A. Merrick

Engaging Catholic Doctrine, which includes contributions from some of the most influential theologians working today, is a tribute to Matthew Levering for his selfless dedication to establishing a firm foundation for contemporary Catholic doctrine. In the fields of Aquinas as a biblical theologian, the Trinity, the significance of sacrifice for truly Christian worship, the rehabilitation of virtue in moral theology, Joseph Ratzinger's theology, and many other topics, essayists significantly improve Matthew Levering's work. This volume not only honours and celebrates Levering's work but also presents fresh insights in some of the most important areas of theological enquiry right now.

As the co-editor of Nova et Vetera and the International Journal of Systematic Theology, Matthew Levering holds the James N. Jr. and Mary D. Perry Chair of Theology at Mundelein Seminary. He earned his Ph.D. from Boston College and his M.T.S. from Duke University. He is a notable advocate of Thomistic resourcefulness and is the author of over thirty works on dogmatic, moral, spiritual, and historical theology. He has also published or co-edited another thirty books. A nine-volume study on Catholic Dogmatics is among them, along with:

  • Christ’s Fulfillment of Torah and Temple
  • Scripture and Metaphysics
  • Participatory Biblical Exegesis
  • The Betrayal of Charity
  • Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?
  • An Introduction to Vatican II as an Ongoing Theological Event
  • The Theology of St. Augustine
  • Dying and the Virtues
  • The Oxford Handbook of the Trinity
  • Newman on Doctrinal Corruption

“Matthew Levering is one of the most important and prolific theologians of our times. This volume’s carefully selected and thematically ordered essays are not merely a fitting tribute to
Levering’s impressive scholarship but offer the reader an intellectually coherent insight into some of the most pressing issues within contemporary Catholic doctrine, such as the role and
nature of reason, God, biblical exegesis, revelation, and worship. In all these areas the volume offers what is best in Catholic theology and as such a roadmap for the future. This superb
collection of essays deserves a wide readership.”
Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, Rome, Italy


“This substantial collection of essays written by some of today’s finest theologians is a fitting tribute to the breadth and quality of Matthew Levering’s theological writings and a token of the esteem in which he is held by so many who have benefited from his generous collegiality. This volume centers around major areas addressed by Levering in his own numerous publications:
ressourcement of St. Thomas Aquinas, particularly as a biblical theologian, Trinitarian theology, the theology of sacrifice, moral and spiritual theology, and a final section including contemporary engagements with themes of evangelization, eschatology, and divine love in nature and grace. After the example of Matthew Levering’s own work, these essays give encouraging witness to the fruits of theology born of living faith and love for the Church.”
Providence College, Rhode Island, United States


“Impressive in its thematic and geographical coverage, this wonderful book is essential reading for anyone looking for a single publication that, like a lens, brings together all the major trends in contemporary theology. At the same time, it provides a grammar, that is, a set of essential rules according to which we should think about our ‘today’: not by abandoning the core topics of Christian theology, such as sacrifice, atonement, grace, or virtue but by seeking to explain them.”
Piotr Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland


“As the introduction to this wonderful volume explains, Matthew Levering has been above all an encourager of others, and an encourager who brings out the best, generating theses, articles, and books by his friends. The quality of what he generates may be seen in the powerful and searching pieces gathered here, in every case delving deep and bringing to light new theological riches. This is a book we need, a fitting tribute to a truly humble worker in the Lord’s vineyard.”
Durham University, England & Australian Catholic University
