Thank you. Dh has a class (I go with him) in Fundamental Theology and the book they are using is Dynmics of Theology by Roger Haight. After all this time in the class, I still don't know what exactly Fundamental Theology is, and I'd like to read something from an actual Catholic author on what it is.

I've never heard the term 'fundamental theology' in a Catholic context.

When I saw the thread subject I though it was something about that protestant tome, The Fundamentals.

The Fundamentals: A Testimony To The Truth (generally referred to simply as The Fundamentals) is a set of ninety essays published between 1910 and 1915 by the Testimony Publishing Company of Chicago. It was initially published quarterly in twelve volumes, then republished in 1917 by the Bible Institute of Los Angeles as a four-volume set. Baker Books reprinted all four volumes under two covers in 2003. (Extract from Wikipedia)

Sigh. Roger Haight has been the subject of ecclesial sanctions from the CDF to the point of being forbidden to teach theology at Catholic institutions. I'm sorry to hear that a book of his is being used in formation. May I suggest that your husband read Sheed on his own just to get the true picture?

BTW, I do not recommend that he make a fuss about this. The only thing that is likely to do is to get him dismissed.

Yes, we are definitely of the "keep your head down and don't make a fuss" group. We are in the Arch. of Atlanta so we know this dance pretty well. I will definitely pass on Sheed to dh. Thank you! Any other book recommendations?

Yeah, I looked up the auther when the teacher (a Jesuit) announced the book to the class.

Does it have illustrations clearly showing the shape?

No pictures. You have to use your imagination.

But it's by a Dominican, so that counts for something. :cloud9:

Fundamental Theology is more or less the theology of divine revelation: that is the theology of the nature of God's revelation of Himself. So it would include questions on the inerrancy of Scripture and the nature of the Magisterium of the Church (so papal infallibility, etc.).

Thank you for this!

In which case my second recommendation (by a Dominican :cloud9: ) more directly deals with that subject matter.
