Why Doctrines?Why Doctrines?

Second edition, by Charles Hefling
168 pages | available in paperback

First published in 1984, this book brings a “Lonerganian” viewpoint to bear on the question that provides its title. The five central chapters discuss Christianity’s doctrine – its judgments of fact and value – in relation to other notions: faith, community, authority, history, and scripture. The aim throughout is to lead readers to consider the sorts of questions that Lonergan deals with in Method in Theology and others of his later works.
