If you love Catholic theology and great book deals, you’ll love this month’s Pre-Pub highlights. (Pre-Pub is your opportunity to get books and collections at a discount before they publish. You can see the full list here.)
This month we’re highlighting four resources, from an introduction to modern Catholic theology to the first-ever scholarly collaboration offering a feminist interpretation of every book of the Bible.
Tracey Rowland showcases here the dominant contemporary approaches to doing Catholic theology. Chapter 1 summarizes the two International Theological Commission (ITC) documents on the discipline of Catholic theology, and subsequent chapters focus on one of four different approaches frequently found in contemporary Catholic academies.
