  • This collection of essays marks 150 years of study and reflection since the Irish Dominicans founded their Priory in Tallaght in south County Dublin. For most of that time, St Marys served as the house of studies for the province. Over the past four years it has developed a new outreach, as the Priory Institute, offering courses in philosophy and theology by distance learning.

    Opening essays are on the text of the Bible, on the formation of the Gospels, and on the experience of exile and migration in the lives of Jesus and Paul. There are chapters on Dominican theology and spirituality, drawing on the classic writings of Aquinas, the sermons of Meister Eckhart, and the wisdom found in the Orders 800 years of development.

    We read also about the art and craft of preaching, and the difficulties and possibilities of speaking in situations of distress, alienation and affliction. Chapters are included on moral theology as explored in the Dominican tradition, on the contribution and limitations of law, and on Church-State relations, particularly in Ireland.

    In the contemporary situation in which religion, faith, and theology are regarded with increasing suspicion, these essays are a timely reminder of the healing, civilising and ultimately saving character of the Word of God revealed in Jesus of Nazareth.
