Product Description

Review

'Lucid, perceptive, thickly textured, theologically rich, and refreshingly concise - Kilby's presentation of Rahner's theology is a must for students of Rahner, be they first year seminarians or senior theologians. I have taught her book for years and I still learn something new from it every time I return - it's brilliant reading.' --Serene Jones, Yale Divinity School

'This is an excellent book, very useful for students and one of the clearest introductions to Rahner.' --John McDade, Principal of Heythrop College, London

'Karen Kilby's book will be invaluable to teachers and students because of its lucid, learned, and penetrating understanding of one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century. It is the best single slim volume on Rahner that I know.' --Gavin D'Costa, University of Bristol

'... invaluable to teachers and students ... It is the best single

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive, Easy to Digest Overview of Karl Rahner's Thought 27 Jan 2014
By Ian Chamberlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short book offers a very easy to digest overview of the thought of someone who is a very complex, deep, and influential thinker. The author does a good job of presenting the criticisms and challenges to Rahner's thought and perhaps charitable defenses of them as well. But it doesn't end there, the reader is invited to foray into the sea of Rahner's writings with a guide of where one might start.
