Rist sets out a vision of constantly developing truth that incorporates all that is good.


Introduction: partial and universal truth; 1. The human race: or, how could women be created in the image and likeness of God?; 2. Divine justice and man's 'genetic' flaw; 3. Divine beauty: nature, art and humanity; 4. The origin and early development of episcopacy at Rome; 5. Caesaropapism, theocracy or neo-Augustinian politics?; 6. The Catholic Church in 'modern' and 'post-modern' culture; 7. Looking at hopes and fears in the rear mirror.
