The Church is a mystery. To enter more deeply into that mystery, believers reflect on the Church’s basic characteristics — what it means for the Church to be one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. Father Nichols, a Dominican theologian, explores these marks by drawing on insights from four theological masters.

The author helps his reader “figure out” the Church on at least a fundamental level by appealing to both the Scholastic tradition and authors influenced by the ressourcement movement in theology. He provides readers with a sense of Catholicism’s breadth, which is at once orthodox and yet generously conceived.
