My overarching aim as a moral theologian and war/peace ethicist is to find ways of bridging these divides and work for the common good. This commitment aligns with my conviction: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God” (Mt 5:9).

What surprised me most, I think, was to see how early Ratzinger’s mature theological vision emerged—at least in regards to Scripture and Revelation. He wrote his Habilitationsschrift on Bonaventure in his late 20s and, as far as I can tell, never fundamentally revised the model of Scripture and Revelation he discovered there.

Armenian theologians have been reading and responding to developments in Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant theological thought for a long time, now.

Newman produced a bittersweet account of the meeting in a letter to Ambrose St John, his last great friend, written in the house of his first great friend, the late Bowden, in which he speaks about two other great friendships recovered after 20 years of silence. A truly marvelous concentration of coincidences!
