Overview

We live in turbulent times, in which it is not always easy to distinguish between authentic reform and the distortion of faith. Ideological pluralism, technological advances, the information overload, and the collapse of traditional standards have brought confusion into the minds and hearts of many Christians. The times call for a more confident and unified assertion of the basic truths of faith. The world of faith must be seen as a new and enduring order, established by God and capable of regenerating every human life and society. Although written by one of this country’s premiere theologians, this book is accessible by the average Catholic lay person.

A convert to the Faith, Avery Dulles, S.J. is the Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society Professor at Fordham University. He has published more than seventeen books and is a regular contributor to America magazine. His lectures receive wide recognition, debate, and acclaim.
