Segundo, an important Latin American Roman Catholic theologian, provides a groundbreaking study of dogma in the Old Testament through the ages. The study is thorough, carefully nuanced, and courageous: it will be controversial because Segundo addresses central issues about the process of revelation and its content. In prophetic fashion he tries to discern the signs of the times and restore an experiential basis to divine revelation and its dogmatic formulation. He recommends a return to essential, core teachings that are humanizing. Recommended for seminary, academic, and large public libraries.
