SchillebeeckxEdward Schillebeeckx was among the twentiethcentury’s most influential Catholic theologians. Born in Belgium in 1914, and ordained to the priesthood in 1941, he studied—and later taught—theology and philosophy. As a member of the Dominican order, his intellectual and academic approach to the study of theology garnered him much acclaim with the Dutch bishops prior to the Second Vatican Council. As a result, Schillebeeckx became one of the most active theologians in the discussion of a wide range of issues, including the nature of the Church, the priesthood, and engagement with contemporary culture. His insights and perspective were crucial in the development of such pioneering constitutions as Dei Verbum and Lumen Gentium.
 
Despite Schillebeeckx’s important role surrounding the Second Vatican Council (or perhaps because of it), some of his works have stirred up controversy. How are we to engage with works such as Jesus, an Experiment in Christology? How, precisely, did his thinking influence the Church?
 
With Verbum’s suite of tools, you can read and understand Schillebeeckx’s entire works in one convenient location. Furthermore, each of these works is fully searchable and cross-referenced to every other resource in your library. With Verbum, you can see the connections between Schillebeeckx’s thoughts and their corresponding ideas in the Vatican II Documents. On top of all this, the collection includes Schillebeeckx: A Guide for the Perplexed, which guides readers through his more difficult points, and weaves them into the Church’s Tradition.
 
This unparalleled, fourteen-volume collection includes the entire body of Schillebeeckx’s work, as well as a collection of newly translated essays, contemporary academic discussions of Schillebeeckx’s writings, and a useful reader’s guide written by Stephan van Erp, a distinguished Schillebeeckx scholar.

The Way of The Lord Jesus

The realm of moral theology exists to press into and understand the will of God for our lives. God created us to be free agents—entities with the ability to choose which actions we’ll take. But being free and having a will means we must always face a particular set of questions. How should we act? What is the best way to go about doing things? This is what moral theology is all about, and these are precisely the kinds of questions that are answered in the great moral theological work The Way of the Lord Jesus.

the-way-of-the-lord-jesusFinally making its way into Verbum, this series is split into three volumes—each addressing a crucial element of Catholic moral theology. They are constructed primarily as a textbook in fundamental moral theology for students in Catholic seminaries. However, those already ordained to the priesthood, teachers of religion, parents concerned about the catechetical formation of their children, and others will find this book extremely helpful. This series is written to “treat the specific moral responsibilities common to all or most lay people and those common to clerics, religious, and lay people. It aims to treat its subject matter in accord with Catholic doctrine as it has been developed by the Second Vatican Council and recent papal teaching” (xi, vol. II).

Volume 1: Christian Moral Principles primarily considers the fundamental parts of moral theology. In the later two volumes, Germain Grisez takes up the specific responsibilities of Christians and clarifies their responsibilities in light of these principles.

Volume 2: Living a Christian Life looks intently at the teachings of Vatican II, applying them to today’s moral questions. Whereas Christian Moral Principles treated the foundations of Christian morality, this volume deals with the specific questions that concern all or most Catholics.

Volume 3: Difficult Moral Questions deals with questions not yet the subject of explicit or clearly applicable Church teachings. Grisez takes neither an authoritarian nor subjectivist approach to moral guidance—rather, he offers detailed answers justified in terms of the moral principles developed in the first two volumes.

Published in 1983, The Way of The Lord Jesus stands out as one of the clearest and most important Catholic moral works of our time. In Verbum, these theological texts connect with the rest of your library. Cross-references to Church documents, the writings of the saints and Church Fathers, and Greek, Hebrew, and Latin texts will bring you right to the source text in your library.
