Publisher's Summary

This is the theology course you wish you had taken in college or graduate school. This special series surveys the rich landscape of Catholic theology and presents it clearly and passionately. Begin by following your presenter, Rev. Kevin Burke, SJ, dean of the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, through the ancient origins and modern developments of our rich Catholic tradition. Each lecture builds on the next so that you will gain a keen sense for the synthesis of theological thought.

Journey through 2,000 years of prayerful and intelligent reflection and explore what that reflection has revealed about God, human life, the Catholic Church, and Catholic beliefs. This course will challenge and engage you while exploring the major theological questions that have gripped our minds and hearts. You'll discover that your questions about God, Scripture, right living, evil, and love connect you with a rich legacy.

Encounter the great theological ideas with which thoughtful Christians have grappled for centuries, and meet the great theologians who have bequeathed us such a powerful legacy. You will come out of this series with a far deeper and more meaningful understanding of what it means to be Catholic.

Eye-opening course

This is a great primer for Catholics, or for anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of God, faith, grace or life in general. Fr. Burke made me look at things from a totally different perspective, and he explains complex topics in plain English. It’s obvious that he is very passionate about the topic, and also a prayerful person who lives his faith. I will listen to this course again because there’s so much information to take in. Like a great movie, you always pick up on nuances the second or third time through.

Boring

Mundane and not inspirational. Sure Fr. Burke is brilliant. It just made me feel as though I was in a class of which I could fall asleep.
