Is religious belief reasonable? Specifically, is the doctrine of the Catholic faith consistent with reason? Drawing on Catholic and Christian theological traditions, Martin Albl engages readers in theological thinking on various topics including the Trinity, Christology, ecclesiology, human nature, sin, salvation, revelation, and eschatology. Clear and focused, the text links traditional teaching with contemporary issues to show the relevance of faith to contemporary issues. A glossary, cross-referencing system, text and discussion questions, and footnotes with information about Internet resources provide more in-depth information.

Review:

Martin Albl's Reason, Faith, and Tradition, Revised Edition, offers a brilliantly written text for in-class use. Professors and students will benefit from the helpful links to videos and websites that offer supplementary content. The extended discussion and guided reading questions draw out key ideas. The chapters do an impressive job of highlighting the historical development of key theological concepts without simplifying the complex history of thought in the Catholic tradition.
-Randall Woodard, PhD
Saint Leo University
I've been teaching Introduction to Catholic Theology for the past eighteen years, and I only wish that Martin Albl's Reason, Faith, and Tradition: Explorations in Catholic Theology, Revised Edition had been there from the beginning! Albl's book has a central argument--that faith and reason, which have been tragically separated in modernity, are compatible by nature--which it makes while introducing all manner of doctrines, theologians, controversies, etc. This second edition contains significant improvements over the first. I can't imagine using anything else in my introductory courses.
-Rodney Howsare

DeSales University
With Reason, Faith, and Tradition: Explorations in Catholic Theology, Revised Edition, Martin Albl has written a timely book that corrects the increasingly prevalent assumption that faith and reason remain antithetical to each other. Lucidly written, this learned but accessible book provides a thoroughgoing analysis of the best arguments on all sides in an effort to demonstrate the reasonableness of faith; a rational person may indeed believe in God. More than that, however, Albl writes perceptively about our inherent desire for the transcendent, that foundational awareness that one has been called beyond the finite realm to participate in an infinite good.
