'Karl Rahner' (1904-84) was probably the most prominent and influential Catholic theologian of the twentieth century. A German Jesuit, he was a key theological adviser at the Second Vatican Council in the 1960's, despite having had some of his ideas censored only a decade earlier. Heavily influenced by Aquinas, his work sought to reconcile Christian faith with contemporary thought and the revelation of God in human experience.
"Vivid…attractive…well written…this series should prove very useful for sixth forms…students at universities, not to mention the commuter on the 7.30 a.m. to work"
HENRY CHADWICK, 'The Tablet'
