Deification and Grace is an attractively produced treatment of the doctrine of deification. It is one of Sapientia Press's series of "Introductions to Catholic Doctrine" which provide readable, scholarly introductions to key themes in Catholic doctrine.
The author, Daniel Keating, is Professor of Theology at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. He undertook his undergraduate studies in the United States and completed his Doctorate in Theology at Oxford University in England. He has written numerous books and journal articles on theological topics.
That Christians share in the very divine life of the Trinity is one of the most exciting and awe-inspiring mysteries of the Christian faith. Keating has written a concise, readable introduction to this particular doctrine which has challenged and divided Christians since the Reformation.
The volumes in this series are suitable for university and theological faculty libraries and as supporting references for seminary courses in theology. Otherwise, Deification and Grace would make heavy demands on any casual reader lacking a good foundation in these academic disciplines.
