This book presents a solid Catholic teaching about angels through Scripture and tradition. It includes the ideas of modern theologians such as Bernard Cooke and Karl Rahner.
In Angels, Owen Cummings presents a level-headed, clear-eyed survey of Catholic teaching on angels through Scripture and tradition, including the thought of theologians such as Bernard Cooke and Karl Rahner.
Inspired by a question from one of his grandchildren, here Cummings takes a topic that is often treated with childish sentimentality and superstition and grounds it in the authentic tradition of the Church.
Owen F. Cummings studied Semitic languages at University College, Dublin, and did graduate work in theology at Trinity College Dublin and the University of Glasgow. For the last twenty-five years he has taught systematic theology at Mount Angel Seminary, Oregon, as the Distinguished Regents' Professor of Theology. He has been a permanent deacon for thirty-two years, incardinated in the Diocese of Salt Lake City.
