This is breathtaking writing.

Rahner's theology is a very complicated one, yet he presents it in a beautiful, poetic and devotional way.

Karl Rahner has been perhaps the single most influential Catholic theologian of the 20th century. He has served the Church in numerous ways, but he has also maintained his integrity and acumen in theological writings that are both inspired and inspiring in their beauty.
Rahner's theology is a very complicated one, yet he presents it in a beautiful, poetic and devotional way. ~The Content of Faith~ is a collection of some of his most important writings from a long career, and is thus broken up into shorter segments that are easily digestible. This is not a systematic theology. Even the layperson with little interest in theology can sit down and read one of these pieces and be inspired by the beauty of Rahner's vision of God.
I am not a Catholic, yet I appreciate Rahner tremendously and would heartily recommend this book to anyone. There are indeed some pretty heavy essays in here, but don't get bogged down by those - there is plenty here for everyone.

This book is probably the best in the series of books by Karl Rahner. Not only does it sum up the theology of the Roman Catholic Church, but it also sums up the works of Rahner himself. With chapters about Jesus, God, Mary, Christology, Extestentialism, and Angels, it is truly a must for any theological buff.

Format: Hardcover
This is a truly a great collection of some of Karl Rahner's best theological writings. This includes sections from his meditations, sermons, Foundations, Theologie des Todes, spiritual exercises, Theological Investigations and other writings and lectures. There are some true gems here, including a number of absolutely beautiful reflections on the cross, the incarnation, and the Easter message. Rahner is well known for his theology, but his spiritual and reflective writings reveal of man of deep faith and deep longing to grow closer to God. Some of his most poignant writings are the simple contemplations of faith and belief. This is definitely a collection for anyone who wants to learn more about Rahner's theology and who is interested in diving into the theology of one of the 20th century's greatest thinkers.
