Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth-Century Catholic Theology provides both a historical and a theological analysis of the achievements of the renowned generation of theologians whose influence pervaded French theology and society in the period 1930 to 1960, and beyond. It considers how the principal exponents of ressourcement, leading Dominicans and Jesuits of the faculties of Le Saulchoir (Paris) and Lyon-Fourvière, inspired a renaissance in twentieth-century Catholic theology and initiated a movement for renewal that contributed to the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. The book assesses the origins and historical development of the biblical, liturgical, and patristic ressourcement in France, Germany, and Belgium, and offers fresh insights into the thought of the movement's leading scholars. It analyses the fierce controversies that erupted within the Jesuit and Dominican orders and between leading ressourcement theologians and the Vatican. The volume also contributes to the elucidation of the complex question of terminology, the interpretation of which still engenders controversy in discussions of ressourcement and nouvelle théologie. It concludes with reflections on how the most important movement in twentieth-century Roman Catholic theology continues to impact on contemporary society and on Catholic and Protestant theological enquiry in the new millennium.

MEDIA REVIEWS

an indispensible introduction to the ressourcement movement. - Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper

With 34 contributors and 50 pages of bibliography, this book provides a thoroughly documented and masterly analysis, both historical and theological, of the wonderful if wholly unexpected renewal that Catholic theology underwent in the years 1930 to 1960 - Fergus Kerr, The Tablet

Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth-Century Catholic Theology represents the definitive academic 'handbook' for the English-speaking world, for a long time to come, on one of the most important and influential movements in 20th century Catholic theology. The remarkable breadth of topics treated and the impressive variety and consistently high quality of scholars involved bespeaks the significant ongoing impact of the ressourcement movement on contemporary Catholic as well as Protestant theology. This volume will need to belong to the working libraries of all theologians, Catholic or Protestant, who continue to reflect on how one of the most important theological movements of the 20th century continues to impact the theological inquiries and perspectives of the new millennium. - Reinhard Hütter, Duke University Divinity School

Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth-Century Catholic Theology constitutes a landmark in the historical and theological research about the ressourcement movement and we applaud the editors for realizing this project. - Ward De Pril, Louvain Studies
