The Prophetic Church

History and Doctrinal Development in John Henry Newman and Yves Congar

Andrew Meszaros

  • Provides an account of doctrinal development as something both thoroughly historical and thoroughly divine.
  • Analyzes how such mundane historical realities (such as conciliar compromise or changing historical contexts) are the theologically legitimate vehicles by which doctrinal truth is shaped and determined.
  • Advances the insights of two great Christian thinkers, Newman and Congar, who, together, provide the resources for just such or an account.
