Catholicism and Intelligence
Fr. James V. Schall, S.J.
Emmaus Road Publishing, 165 pages
“Catholicism and intelligence belong together,” writes Fr. James Schall, professor emeritus of Georgetown University and a prolific writer, in his introduction to this philosophical journey affirming the necessity of both reason and revelation in the search for truth. History shows how one can reason exquisitely and still not find truth if one seeks it apart from revelation: simply put, revelation perfects reason, and reason articulates and deepens our understanding of revelation. Authentic Catholicism, Fr. Schall argues masterfully in this collection of essays, is what truthseekers need today in order to find ultimate meaning amid today’s troubled and confused world.
