Editorial Reviews

Review

'The remarkable thing about this book is that Kilby not only succeeds in bringing fresh perspective to an already well-tilled field, but manages to do so whilst writing throughout in a clear and comprehensible manner- a quality all too rare in Rahner studies.' - Paul D. Murray, University of Durham, UK

Format: Paperback
This was an excellent summary and analysis of Karl Rahner, and his creative thinking that helped reinterpret the Roman Catholic Church in the modern and contemporary context.

I had had the pleasure of reading Rahner on occasions over the years, and found him thoughtful, refreshing and creative in trying to clarify the ideas and frames of reference behind the forms of faith and devotion. He was particularly helpful with his compassionate attitude toward followers of other world religions, in reference to the exclusivist claims of Christiainity.

One aspect Kilby really brings out well here is how integrated Rahner's personal and academic thought was. Rahner was an active preacher, teacher, speaker, writer and devotional leader.

He wrote meditations and prayers and lived and worked in an active and practical worship context, integrating his thoughtful rational and historical analysis with an application to everyday life and personal worship.
