God and humanity

Theologian Dominic F. Doyle, an associate professor of systematic theology in the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, has published a new book that, according to the publisher, “shows how the Christian virtue of hope breathes new life into humanism, enabling believers to approach God as the human good.”  In The Promise of Christian Humanism: Thomas Aquinas on Hope, Doyle shows how the work of St. Thomas Aquinas, Charles Taylor, Nicholas Boyle, and others reveals the essential bond between the Christian virtue of hope and the life-affirming sensibilities of humanism. Doyle has been honored with the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise and the Catholic Theological Society of America’s Catherine LaCugna Award to New Scholars.
