More About This Textbook


Broad. Engaging. Accessible. Appealing.

These are just a few of the words reviewers used to describe The Ongoing Renewal of Catholicism.

In The Ongoing Renewal of Catholicism, Professor Brennan Hill has provided a wonderfully engaging, progressive look at Catholic theology for today. Dr. Hill's discussion introduces to readers the foundations of Catholic thought, follows the development of that thought, and looks closely at the issues of today's world and Catholicism's response. While firmly rooted in the Catholic tradition, the author takes an ecumenical approach by incorporating teachings and insights from other Christian churches and world faiths.
