THEOLOGY OF THE BEYOND
First Printed: 11-11-2009
Following the theological method proposed in Vatican II’s decree Optatum totius, Theology of the Beyond is an extraordinarily comprehensive, systematic, and up-to-date study of what the Church teaches about the death, heaven, hell and purgatory from a biblical patristic and theology point of view. An ecumenically rich work, it is a valuable tool for both the theological specialist and the average layperson interested in getting to know more about this subject that affect us all. Originally published in Spanish, this master work has been translated into several languages and has gone through a number of revisions and editions. This edition reflects the very latest of these.
About the Author: Father Candido Pozo, SJ, an excellent systematic theologian and scholar, taught for several years at the Gregorian University in Rome and then at Granada, Burgos and Toledo in Spain. On the occasion of his 80th birthday he was compared to St. Thomas Aquinas, “a witness and seeker after truth, searcher and witness for God, the wisest of saints and holiest of the wise, teacher and example to all theologians and those who, in faith and in communion with the Church, seek to understand and to inquire into the teaching of the faith.”
About the Translator: Father Mark Pilon, STL, STD, is presently a Professor of Theology at Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia. He earlier translated a commentary on the Credo of the People of God by Father Pozo (now out of print).
