About this item

Edward Schillebeeckx (1914-2009) is a key figure in modern theology. As one of the editors ofConcilium (with Karl Rahner) he was the advisor of the Dutch bishops at the Second Vatican Council and has been said to have influenced much of the content of the Council's documents. Later he had to defend his theology before the Magisterium as his orthodoxy was doubted. As a theologian, he always sought to balance between tradition and renewal. The cultural and political situation of his time played an important part in the development of his theological ideas. He connected developments in science and culture with his theology and with the life of people in the Church.

This introduction guides the reader through some of Schillebeeckx's key ideas. Stephan van Erp shows how Schillebeeckx linked history and tradition to new experiences and to the spirit of his own time and how, in doing so, Schillebeeckx innovated our understanding of Christ, faith and the Church.
