Conventional wisdom has it that thinking on nature and grace among Catholic intellectuals was severely clouded by the work of Cajetan and his fellow Thomistic commentators from about the sixteenth century to the eve of Vatican II. Henri de Lubac has rightly been given credit for pointing this out; and to all appearances, de Lubac's influence won the day, as can be seen by the imprint of his thought upon not just the Second Vatican Council, but also the ponti cates of John Paul II and Benedict XVI.However, in recent years, a new crop of Thomistic scholars has arisen who question whether de Lubac's word on nature and grace should be the last; hence, the debate over the nature-grace relation, so heated at mid-twentieth century, has been stirred once again. Andrew Dean Swafford here offers a "third way" by way of the nineteenth-century German theologian Matthias J. Scheeben - who, for some reason, has never really been considered especially relevant to this debate. Swaff ord shows that Scheeben can capture the very best of both sides, while at the same time avoiding the characteristic pitfalls so often alleged against each.

"The argument that scholasticism and nouvelle theologie are not as far apart as is typically supposed is persuasive."
-David Grumett, Modern Believing, Vol.57, Issue 1, January 2016

"Swafford's work is a valuable contribution to the continued discussion on nature and grace. The author certainly accomplishes his modest goal of bringing the thought of Matthias Scheeben into the discussion while at the same time providing an excellent primer on the issues that have defined the debate. As such, Nature and Grace is a vital addition to any research library serving graduate students and faculty in the areas of Systematic and Historical Theology."
-Eric Lafferty, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
