Overview

The next few decades promise to be a fertile and creative era for Catholic theology. After a protracted period of digesting and making sense of Vatican Council II, Catholic theologians in the new millennium are now turning to new questions in this age of pluralism. The present volume is an exercise both in looking back over the years since Vatican II closed, and looking forward to what will come next. The chapters in this book were originally given as talks at a symposium celebrating forty years of the summer graduate program in theology and pastoral ministry at St. Michael's College, Winooski, Vermont. The symposium brought together some of North America's leading Catholic theologians and scholars: Raymond F. Collins and Alice L. Laffey on the subject of scripture, Philip S. Keane on moral theology, Kevin W. Irwin on liturgy, in addition to Michael A. Fahey, Monika K. Hellwig, and Terrence W. Tilley. Dermot A. Lane, editor of the volume, summarized the challenge of the future when he encouraged participants to enter the struggle of the coming age by designing a new anthropology, recovering the power of memory, and invoking a new religious imagination.
