Pick this book up and savor it.
I recommend this book. Its influence on modern Catholic spirituality is important. If you want to understand the Catholic Church and its basic theology of the 20th Century, you should read this book.
Criticism of the difficulty in reading de Lubac are somewhat unfounded in that, the important nuances that separates simplistic understanding of Church, theology, and doctrine from a more profound understanding often require complexity. I welcome the difficulty should it provide a greater insight into the meaning of Church as the Living Body.
Although written from a Catholic perspective, de Lubac's engagement of the patristic teachers transcends the Orthodox-Catholic-Protestant divide. I would challenge all those who are serious about faith, doctrine, theology, and ecumenism to explore this book and "entertain" the possibility of the meaning of Church - that which our fathers and mothers in the faith deeply understood and embraced.
