Theology

Theology is the study of God’s relations with humankind, God’s intervention in human affairs, and God’s Revelation of Himself, especially in the Incarnation, when the Son of God became man and entered human history as Jesus, the Christ.

Theology seeks an understanding of God’s Revelation, or as St Anselm put it, theology is “faith seeking understanding”.

Concerning Revelation, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger wrote in his book, “God’s Word”, that:

“You cannot put revelation in your pocket like a book you carry around with you. It is a living reality that requires a living person as the locus of its presence.”
