SYNOPSIS : The author says: what I say here briefly will be found stated and elaborated at appropriate places in the course of the book. But anyone who considers reading a book has a right to know some things before he or she decides whether the book id worth looking into. I gather here such helpful information. First, a few words about the title of the book. Some may be shocked or repelled or both by the qualification Roman Catholic. So I shall try to provide a shock-absorber. I Entitle the book as I do simply to be coherent with my conception of what theology is, and my intention to set forth some basics of the theological works which I myself project. As I understand it, theology is the effort to understand within a life of faith. As a work, it is the result of that effort. The matrix, the living setting in which alone a theology can develop, is religious experience of the theologian within his or her community of believers. Outside, or apart from, such a concrete setting, no one can reflect in any meaningful way on the structures of such experience, and of the experienced reality. I cannot, therefore, write a book of basics of theology in general, for I have no experience of what it is to be a Jew or a Moslem, for example, and I could say nothing which would have any claim to account for Jewish or Moslem theology

What Is Reformed Theology? is an accessible introduction to beliefs that have been immensely influential in the evangelical church. In this insightful book, R. C.

SYNOPSIS : Beauchamp and Childress's Principles of Biomedical Ethics is a well-accepted approach to contemporary bioethics. Those principles are based on what Beauchamp and Childress call the common morality. This book employs New Testament theological themes to enhance the meaning of those principles of bioethics. The primary New Testament text for this study is the twin commands from Jesus to love God and love one's neighbor. The three theological themes developed from this study--the image of God, the covenant, and the pursuit of healing--are deeply embedded in the New Testament and in the ministry of Jesus. Three contemporary bioethics principles are used for this dissertation, based on The Belmont Report. They are the principles of respect for persons, justice, and beneficence. In each case, the theological themes are shown to enhance the meaning of these bioethics principles. Each of the three principles, as understood through the three theological themes, is applied to a current bioethics issue to demonstrate the efficacy of this approach. The three current issues addressed are the withdrawal or withholding of life-sustaining treatment, the distribution of health care in the Untied States, and the use of palliative care.
