What contribution have American Catholic Theologians made to the Church?
Dr. Margaret Farley discusses the essential contribution she believes American Catholic theologians have contributed to the worldwide Church. She first does this by commenting on the important role theologians play in developing doctrine. She then defines both Theology and Ethics: Theology as “the faith community’s effort to understand and articulate what it believes”, and ethics as “how to live what it believes”. These two different conversations include theologians in dialogue not only with each other, but also students, and Church Hierarchy.
