What are contemporary theology's challenges? What are its fruitful approaches? Who are its promising contributors? The contributions to this collection of essays try to find answers to these questions by making references to the Dutch Dominican scholar Edward Schillebeeckx, using his theology as a starting point for an up-to-date investigation and discussion. The theological work of Edward Schillebeeckx marks the transition from a pre-modern to a modern approach to Christian faith, Church, and theology. Already more than two generations of theologians have been trained in dialogue with his thought. Contemporary theology testifies, often implicitly, to the enduring relevance of many of Schillebeeckx's insights, while in other instances it pushes his thinking to its limits in order to deal with the current challenges for faith and society.

'This volume not only introduces Schillebeeckx's theology, one of the leading theologians of the twentieth century, but it also explores its potential for the twentieth first century. The range of challenges and the high quality of the essays by internationally known scholars makes this volume indispensible for anyone interested in the challenges facing theology today. Its value goes far beyond the interpretation of Schillebeeckx to a serious engagement with the problems and issues he faced and with those that we need to face today.' - Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies, Harvard Divinity School, USA.--Sanford Lakoff
