This afternoon I attended a book launch at Blackfriars here in Oxford.
I got to know the author, Andrew Meszaros, when he was studying here in Oxford and after study at Louvain and in Vienna he is now lecturer in systematic theology at Maynooth.
In his book Meszaros argues that dogma is the product of both faith and history, and that in addressing the problems confronting its understanding of its dogmas the Church has always managed to develop the understanding of doctrine in a consistent way.
Fr Timothy RadcliffeOP gave an appreciation of the book and commended it to the audience.
It was a pleasure to meet up with Andrew again and catch up on one another's news.
