Introduction to the Mystery of the Church

Introduction to the Mystery of the Church is an ecclesiological survey presenting a doctrinal synthesis of the Church. The author's intention is to propose an overview of this mystery in connection with the entirety of the Christian mystery. The book is divided into two major parts, the first presenting the foundations in the Bible and the tradition up to our day, and the second being an explanatory proposal introducing the reader to the Church's definition and personality and concluding with an exposition of the four properties enunciated in the Creed (one, holy, catholic, and apostolic).

About the Author

Benoit-Dominique de la Soujeole, OP is a Dominican of the Province of Toulouse, France


"Achieves a comprehensive systematic doctrinal synthesis that is rare in ecclesiological studies since the [Second Vatican] Council. This lengthy and profound study is the best introduction to ecclesiology that exists today and one that sets the bar high for future synthetic and systematic studies of doctrine on the Church." —Nova et Vetera

"Displays a sensitivity to both the Christological and pneumatological aspects in ecclesiology, and more broadly to ecclesiology's connections with other areas of theology. Such Thomistic attention to the unity of theology must be applauded, rarely being found in today's theological landscape, but yet so crucial to the renewal of authentic Catholic thought." —from the foreword by Archbishop J. Augustine Di Noia, OP, Vatican City
