2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Norma Jean Coon on March 29, 2007
Format: Paperback
Soul of a poet, heart of a philosopher, knowledge of a Jesuit, van Beeck begins his first volume of a three volume work on Systematic Theology from a contemporary catholic perspective using the advice of others by recommending the reader to start their reading with Chapters seven through ten and then returning to the beginning of the text. That is most likely because a reader looking to study systematic theology expects to just start reading. Doxology, Soteriology, the creed, worship, witness and growth in the spirit of theological authority are presented after the first six chapters of the book which are devoted to define what systematic theology should be and why it is important as a topic. A presentation of how natural religion, philosophy and systematic theology is given and the format of the text is designed with a clear cross reference between the texts and volumes to come. The use of paragraph numbers and reverences of those numbers throughout these volumes gives an ease to forward and backward referencing which gives ease to reading a fairly complex book. The book will best be appreciated in the context of the series, Volume 1, Volume 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 2-4a, 2-4b, 2-5, Volume 3. Volume 2-5 and Volume 3 are in publication. Bibliography, subject, Scripture, and name index is included. It has been used as a college text for systematic theology classes.
