Theology, more than an academic field, is a way to know God. Evagrius Ponticus, an ancient desert monk, taught that a theologian is one who prays and the one who prays is a theologian. Many, many saints such as St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine of Hippo, and St. Bonaventure found holiness in learning theology.
St. Matthew's Director of Faith Formation, begins a Theological Studies series that provides an introduction to the discipline of theology by immersion in a book of theology and teaching derived from the book. For the summer 2022 course, we will read Jesus Symbol of God by Roger Haight, SJ. For the first meeting on June 9, please read the Preface, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.
