How Balthasar Changed My Mind
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Addressing the widespread and growing interest in the thought of Catholic theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar-whose influence on Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI has been enormous-this collection, by a team of established theologians and intellectuals, reflects on Balthasar's impact. Not a collection of scholarly articles, these are essays on the way in which Balthasar's theology is being taken up into other theological and philosophical projects, as well as contemplations on how Balthasar has influenced the authors personally. Key themes include the importance of beauty, the dramatic nature of truth, the centrality of revelation, the uniqueness and universality of Christ, and the intrinsic relationship between theology and sanctity. This volume is both a first-rate introduction to Balthasar and a window into the way that great theologians understand the driving questions of their work. Contributors include Michael Hanby, Nick Healy, Francesca Murphy, Danielle Nussberger, Cyril O'Regan, Tracey Rowland, David Louis Schindler, and Michael Waldstein.
