Editorial Reviews

Review

'... learned and provocative ...' The Heythrop Journal

Book Description

Is truth unchanging? Can it develop over time? To what extent may the Catholic community jettison or modify earlier beliefs? Should it embrace insights from other cultures? Rist argues that dyamism rather than rigidity is essential to avoiding fundamentalism or anarchy, and to promoting the dignity of the human person.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book by one of the most important living scholars of ancient Greek & Roman civilization. Its chapters are subdivided into dozens of small sections that make it easily digestible.
