Nearly all Christians profess allegiance to the holy catholic church, but the meaning of the term catholic is widely disputed. This book investigates the historical use of the word and the various aspects of catholicity. Beginning with the word's divine source in Christ as the first-born of all creation, Dulles goes on to discuss such topics as the catholic principle, Catholicism as a specific ecclesial type, and the possibility of a Protestant Catholicism. He concludes by asking how, given the current parochial appearance of Christianity, any Christian church can plausibly claim to be catholic.
