How do you understand Grace and sin? How are they spiritually connected?

In the Western Church, the understanding of grace, sin, and God’s good creation has been shaped by theologians responding to the challenges specific to their times while using the resources of theology, philosophy, and personal religious experience. With the help of Father Brian McDermott, S.J., and this series of 15 25-minute lectures, you will be able to address these and other questions as well as gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics of God’s Grace.

In this program you will explore the ways that God works in our lives to draw us closer to the Divine Mystery, to forgive our sinfulness in a transformative way, and to liberate us for generous service in the world.

Theologians and great thinkers from the apostle Paul to St. Thomas Aquinas, to contemporary philosophers such as Karl Rahner, will all have a part in this journey to fully understanding the concept of God’s grace and its role in our Catholic lives every day.

This program will help you feel more in touch with your inner grace, and help you grapple with the challenging ideas of grace and sin in the world. Fr. McDermott does a remarkable job of opening your minds to the history of past theological debates on these terms, while helping you find, in your heart, what you truly believe.

  1. Art Sippo, Highland, IL

    *

    An excellent survey of Catholic teaching on grace and on it’s development in history.

  2. Gary

    The Theology of Grace brought a clear perspective of various Church Theologians

    The Theology of Grace brought a clear perspective of various Church Theologians of how grace moves within the Church, the Body of Christ, and how we, as members of the Church, are such critical elements of this salvific economy.
