Dr. John Grabowski Publishes an Essay

Dr. Grabowski publishes “Catechesis and Moral Theology: Toward a Renewed Understanding of Christian Experience.”  Nova et  Vetera  13:2 (2015): 459-87.  The essay examines the role of appeals to experience in fueling controversy in the recent history of catechetics and moral theology.  Drawing on conciliar and subsequent magisterial teaching and the thought of Augustine, the essay argues that experience as a source for theology must be informed and transformed by revelation at the heart of which is the encounter with Christ.
