Overview

This book offers a lively and succinct account of Catholic theology from 1900 to the present day. The book begins with the work of Chenu, the guru of the French worker priest movement, and concludes with the writings of contemporary theologians such as the present Pope, Benedict XVI.

Kerr, himself one of the foremost Catholic theologians writing in English, discusses the theological development of each figure and their relationship to Church teaching. The past 100 years have been a time of enormous reform and renewal in the Catholic Church, and Kerr shows how each thinker contributed to this process, especially in relation to the wide reaching changes introduced by the Second Vatican Council.

The result is a vivid and informative volume, exploring the sometimes turbulent life, work, and legacy of the twentieth century’s most important Catholic theologians. It will be widely read by students, academics, and general readers interested in contemporary Catholicism.
