In The Ongoing Renewal of Catholicism, Professor Brennan Hill has provided a wonderfully engaging, progressive look at Catholic theology for today.
Dr. Hill's discussion introduces to readers the foundations of Catholic thought, follows the development of that thought, and looks closely at the issues of today's world and Catholicism's response. Brennan Hill is professor emeritus, Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio. He has taught theology for more than forty years, twenty-two of them at Xavier, the rest at Siena College, Seattle University, Saint Michael's College, Marquette University, and the College of Saint Rose. The author of more than twenty books and hundreds of articles, Dr. Hill has four graduate degrees in both English and theology. His PhD is from Marquette University. He was the 2004 recipient of the Bishop Broderick Award, and he has been a member and president of the College Theology Society.

Brennan Hill, professor emeritus at Xavier University in Cincinnati, uses a fascinating format for bringing undergraduates and dialogue groups into these ongoing discussions.
Thus, Hill misses the point that it was the chief priests, as all three synoptic Gospels make clear, who plotted against Jesus after the cleansing of the Temple (Mt 26:3, Mk 14:1, Lk 22:2). Hill could have profited had he consulted a biblical scholar for this section of his otherwise excellent book.

HOW TEN TRENDS ARE REVOLUTIONIZING THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 8 Spiritual Heroes: Their Search For God Written by Brennan R. Hill 333 pp.
But in Hill's mind all are "heroes," therefore suggesting they all lived lives of heroic sanctity which is a principal characteristic of one declared "saint" by the Church. Brennan Hill taught theology at Xavier University using the lives and writings of his "Heroes," thus completing a trilogy, the second of which is his "8 Freedom Heroes: Changing the World with Faith. He succeeds in making theological themes extremely interesting by showing how they played in the drama of people in conflict with the world. Hill handles these themes like the professional theologian that he is.

Brennan Hill, professor of religious education and theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati, a former staff member of the Albany diocesan Office of Religious Education and author of "Jesus, the Christ: Contemporary Perspectives," agrees about the difficulty in learning about Jesus' life before His public ministry.One way to find out what His childhood, teen and young adult years were like is to look at His adult years and reflect."He had to learn Hebrew and carpentry," Dr. Hill said."He didn't just pop out of Nazareth as a teacher-healer."Through studying Jewish history and writings, scholars can get an impression of the sociological and political world Jesus lived in, he continued, adding that "from there, we can make assumptions."ChildhoodDr. Hill explained that both Mary and Joseph played important roles in Jesus' education.Contrary to popular thought, he said, Joseph probably was alive for longer than previously believed.In order for Jesus to have learned carpentry, Dr. Hill said, "Joseph had to have been around a fair amount."While women in Jesus' time were oppressed, Mary played an important role in Jesus' life, Dr. Hill said."She was a very strong woman and He learned much from her.There is much Mary in Jesus," he stated.He speculates, for example, that Jesus learned prayerfulness from Mary.TravelingIn his book, Dr. Hill explains the life of craftsmen during Jesus' time:"Craftsmen would work in their own villages as long as there were things to be made and repaired, but often they would have to go to the neighboring cities, such as Tiberias and Sephoris, where building projects would be more likely.It is even possible that Jesus moved to Capernaum as a young adult partly because there was not enough work in Nazareth to make a living."Dr. Hill explained that it was difficult to find wood during that time because the woodlands of Galilee had been plundered by armies.Carpenters had to be strong and hardy in order to use the primitive tools.Life at homeLife in Galilee and the village of Nazareth was simple, according to Dr. Hill.Education was important for Jews, even those living in small villages like Nazareth, Dr. Hill said."Jesus would have to attend the village school daily from early childhood until age 12 or 13," Dr. Hill explained."There, He would learn the books of the Bible and the basic knowledge needed to live as a devout Jew.Once this period of formal learning was finished, Jesus and the other students could move on to study with the local sage or teacher of the law and could join regularly in the village with other adults who studied the Torah while working in the fields, in their spare time, or on the rooftops in the cool of the evening."(Dr. Hill's book "Jesus the Christ: Contemporary Perspectives" costs $14.95 and is available through Twenty-Third Publications, PO Box 180, Mystic, CT 06355.Call 1-800-321-0411.)
