Lockey, Paul E. 2023 1-4955-1180-4 326 pages "Guerric of Igny (c. 1080-1157) is the least-known of "the four Cistercian Fathers. ...Within the Cistercian order...Guerric's corpus of sermons are foundational to Cistercian thought. Born in Tournai (now in Belgium), he was trained in the cathedral school in philosophy and theology, under the influence of Odo of Cambrai. ...Guerric became Abbot of Igny, and he composed a series of carefully-worded sermons which were arranged to the order of the liturgical year. These sermons are not sermons in the usual sense, but are expositions on the monastic life throughout the liturgical year. ...This present volume...strives to expand and enlarge Guerric scholarship by categorizing the major aspects of theology addressed in Guerric's sermons. ... The advantage of systemizing Guerric's thoughts is to better comprehend his overall understanding of Christology, soteriology, morality, anthropology, et.
Bavinck, Herman 2013 0-7734-4484-X 484 pages This is an exploration into the mind of Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) whose name is still revered as one of the prominent leaders in the revival of Dutch Neo-Calvinism in the Netherlands that profoundly affected not only theology and the church but also education, politics and society more broadly. A new world of Bavinck thoughts have opened up with this first ever English translation of his two articles on the Imitation of Christ.
Fry, C. George 2004 0-7734-6550-2 140 pages Berthold von Schenk defies easy analysis. Scion of an ancient German aristocratic family, he served as an inner-city minister, was a pioneer twentieth-century ecumenist, a dedicated parish pastor, and an internationally renowned author and scholar. Trained in St. Louis by the noted Missouri Synod dogmatist Franz Pieper, he was later summoned by Pope John XXIII to participate in the first of Protestant-Roman Catholic consultations prior to Vatican II. This study begins with a biography and overview of his times, and then concentrates on his philosophy and theology, groundbreaking for its time.
Davies, Jon 1995 0-7734-9034-5 182 pages This study traces the long evolution of the male military-heroic tradition of the West and its reinvigoration by Christian theology and ecclesiology. It shows how this heroic tradition lies behind notions of national and gender identity, and how, with the shared symbolism of war remembrance and war memorials, this century comes to an end in an elaboration of a common, sacralised bellicognisant Eurochristian culture. It concludes with an analysis of the working out of this culture in debates about 'War Crimes', masculine concepts of 'Duty' and a war (The Gulf War) on Eurochristianity's frontier with Islam.
Marshall, Cynthia 1991 0-88946-494-4 122 pages Studies that go beyond observations noting thematic connections between C. S. Lewis' theological writings and his imaginative fictions to probe the basic foundation of Lewis' conception of fiction and advance our understanding of the importance Lewis granted to the imagination in perceiving truth. Also, explores the role George MacDonald (who Lewis said "baptized [his] imagination") played in the development of his theory of fiction. Walter Hooper and Ann Loades offer essays on questions of autobiography raised by A Grief Observed; Robert Holyer writes on the epistemology of Till We Have Faces; Frank Riga discusses dreams as conduits for the imagination; and Waldo Knickerbocker discusses Lewis' sense of Christianity as "a true fairy tale."
Gibbs, Lee W. 2024 1-4955-1191- x 232 pages "It may be discerned through the proceeding parts of this book my own spiritual pilgrimage from hard line double predestination to potential universal salvation through the metamorphoses of Calfinist thinking as reflected in my life-long research into the writings of Calvin, and three other great theologians--William Ames, Richard Hooker, and Charles Chauncy--who were all heavily influence by Calvin. The discussion of each of these figures addresses each of the following questions: (1) How much of Calvin did they change? (2) How much of Calvin did they retain? (3) What difference did it make?" -from The Author's "Preface"
Gillette, Gregory 2007 0-7734-5406-3 136 pages This book provides an analysis of the concepts of space and time in the thought and writings of Sir Isaac Newton, attempting to illustrate his portrayal of both of these as sacred, not merely material entities.

McAloon, Francis X. 2008 0-7734-5022-X 264 pages Grounded in the investigative tools of interpretation theory, theo-poetic aesthetics, and literary criticism, this book proposes and employs an interdisciplinary methodology for the analysis of poetic prayer tests, focusing upon the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins.

Lapierre, Michael J. 1999 0-7734-7888-4 132 pages This study deals with the place Vasquez gives to the objective concept in its relation to the external word (speech), to truth (judgment), to knowledge (human cognition), and to being (reality). The crux of the matter lies in the relation which the objective concept of a thing has to the thing in itself. His teaching of the objective concept was opposed by his contemporary, John of St. Thomas. In this century, Jacques Maritain in his work Reflexions sur l’intelligence et sa vie propre, sees it as the source of the idealism of succeeding eras.
“There are hardly any English publications on Vasquez to date. Prof. Lapierre’s work is filling a gap; therefore, it is a must for any library in the English speaking world interested in medieval studies.” – Tibor Horvath

Donalson, Malcolm Drew 2024 1-4955-1194-4 60 pages "In this intriguing book, Donalson sorts out the traditions associated with the various Marys and the unnamed women linked to them. Although it is impossible to solve the puzzle completely, the book discusses the options offered by the tradition and shows how the Marys, especially the Mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalena, and Mary of Bethany contribute to Christian piety, spirituality, legend, and theology." -Dr. Scott Goins (Preface)
