One of you readers sent a book from my Amazon wishlist (thanks, S). I have started to dig in and it is great.
Joseph Clifford Fenton’s The Theology of Prayer
US HERE – UK HERE
I was immediately struck by the different style of language than that which we often see these days. This book was written in 1939 in happier days of clarity and charity. Msgr. Fenton was a profession of theology at Catholic University of America between 1944-1963. This volume updates some notes, etc.
Fenton was a peritus for Cardinal Ottaviani at the Second Vatican Council. That should give you an idea of his reliability.
Here are shots of a couple of pages,to give you an idea of how crisp this book is.
This is a keeper.
