Balthasar for Thomists

Aidan Nichols, OP

Since Aquinas is the classic theologian of the Latin tradition, readers and devotees of Balthasar can hardly repudiate Thomas. But Thomists are under no comparable obligation to develop a sympathy for Balthasar. This study by a highly respected

Dominican theologian seeks to show the many debts of Balthasar to Aquinas, as well as the points where Balthasar departs from Thomas, or goes beyond him.

What Every Catholic Should Know

Fr Daniel Moloney

Fr. Moloney invites the reader to wrestle with the supposed contradiction of God saying that he is merciful, yet killing and punishing his creation. Moloney ultimately resolves this apparent contradiction by highlighting God's identity as the loving Father, explaining how, similar to good earthly fathers, sometimes the most loving route to take in truly loving your children and bringing them to their ultimate good is through the course of tough love. God is always good and loving, and his justice and mercy go hand-in-hand.

The Politics of Heaven and Hell

Christian Themes from Classical, Medieval, and Modern Political Philosophy

James V. Schall, SJ.  Foreword by Robert Reilly

Christianity “freed men from the overwhelming burden of ever thinking that their salvation will ultimately come from the political order”, writes Fr. James Schall, S.J. Modernity, on the other hand, is a perversion of Christianity, which tries to achieve man’s salvation in this world. It does this by politicizing everything, which results in the absolute state: “The distance from the City of God to the Leviathan is not at

all far once the City of God is relocated on earth.”
