Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Edward T. Oakes provides a highly readable introduction to Balthasar's thought.... A truly beautiful form, he maintains, has two characteristics: it attracts, and it is inexhaustible."- Robert E. Proctor, Commonweal, December 1, 2006

It is simply the best introduction to Balthasar's thoughts. I didn't understand what is really going on with the 'Analogy of Being' business in medieval theology until I find this book. (Not that I understand it well right now, but at least I finally find a systematic introduction that makes sense to a contemporary reader.)
The writing, while sometimes dense, has the rare clarity that makes you feel like you learn and understand something more after reading every paragraph. It is a very refreshing book in this way.

This eminently readable book provides an excellent introduction to the thought of this most difficult figure, making him accessible in a way that many other books on Balthasar have not. Moreover, it does not fall into the trap of "hagiography", that is, of being excessively admiring and blindly uncritical, which has typified so much of what has been written on Balthasar.

yes, very good indeed. One of the clearest explanations of the doctrine of analogy. Lifts Balthasar from sterile debates between 'conservatives' and 'liberals'.
