In this volume, Professor Wiles continues the questioning of the Christian tradition made familiar through The Remaking of Christian Doctrine in a number of essays, some of which appear in print here for the first time. A first group defines the nature of the task of the critical theologian, and explores the way in which he pursues it in two important areas. Then two papers, The Patristic Appeal to Tradition' and 'Historical Religion' discuss the place of tradition in Christianity. A final group, prefaced by an essay on the Holy Spirit, considers the Bible and the sacraments as purveyors of tradition: The Uses of Holy Scripture', 'Eucharistic Theology-The Value of Diversity', and 'Sacramental Unity in the Early Church.'
