After introducing the idea of theology adn the virtues desirable in the budding theologian, the bulk of the book falls intro the five sections: (1) the tole of philosophy in theology- (2) the use of the Bible in theology- (3) the resources of tradition, liturgy and sacred art- Fathers, Councils and Creeds- the sense of the faithful- (4) two aids to discernment in short history of Catholic theology from the New Testament to the present day. The conclusion considers the features of pluralism and unity which should typify Catholic theology as a whole and suggests how unity may avoid becoming uniformity without pluralism becoming anarchy.
