Magisterial . Ought not to be missed.” M.D. Aeschliman, National Review
A soul-stirring self-analysis, no less than a distillation of the life-work of the living historian best qualified to provide solutions to those Tradition versus Bible-Only’ controversies that have plagued Christianity since the Reformation.” L.K. Shook, Canadian Catholic Review
Admirably concise and penetrating.” Merle Rubin, The Christian Science Monitor
It takes a scholar thoroughly steeped in a subject to be able to write with lucidity and charm about its traditions.  When the scholar is Dr. Pelikan, the result is a kind of classic, something sure to become a standard text for an interested public.” Northrop Frye

Pelikan’s customary erudition, wit, and gracious style are evident throughout this stimulating volume.” Harold E. Remus, Religious Studies Review
The book clearly constitutes a unified plea that modern society finds ways and means to recapture the resources of the past and to overcome its fear of the tyranny of the dead.” Heiko A. Oberman, Times Literary Supplement

Book Description Yale University Press September 1986, 1986. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. ''What you have as heritage, take now as task; for thus you will make it your own'' (Goethe, Faust). The epigram for this series of lectures admirably sums up volumes of theological attempts to describe tradition. Pelikan is not laying out systematic theology in these lectures, though. He is setting forth several different ways of getting hold of the concept of tradition: tradition vs. ''Bible-only'' historical debates, John Henry Newman's methodology in Arians of the Fourth Century and Essay on Development, the impact of modern historical-critical studies, and the difference Between traditionalism and tradition. Erudition from a stellar historical theologian. Essential. Bookseller Inventory # 135973
