about

This book articulates a theory of Catholic tradition that departs from previous understandings. Drawing on the medieval concept of the four-fold sense of scripture, John Thiel proposes four interpretive senses of tradition. He also offers a theory of doctrinal development that reconcilesCatholic belief in apostolic authority and continuity of tradition with a critical approach to the evidence of history.
John E. Thiel is at Fairfield University.

Editorial Reviews

"...quite simply the finest piece of constructive theology I have read in years. With due respect to Jaroslav Pelikan, Nicholas Lash, and others, Thiel's is the best book in English on the development of doctrine since John Henry Newman's essay on the same topic."--Modern Theology
