5.0 out of 5 stars Freshness to our faith 30 May 2016
By Deacon Alex Caudillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have found in Von Balthasar a so much needed theological and spiritual freshness in his writings. Although his brilliant mind (philosophically and theologically) and his prolific writing can cause one to feel somewhat overwhelmed, his clear description of what he desires to accomplish guides one with a sense of clarity, awe and spiritual consolation. Von Balthasar, in his trilogy, theological aesthetics, theodrama and theologic, chooses to explain our catholic faith through the transcendental of the beautiful. In a world where goodness and truth are hard to save from the relativization of the individual, Von Balthasar believes we still can save the beautiful and as a result the beautiful (which is contained in the truth and the good) will save our faith. This can be the way in which there will be less resistance of rediscovering the splendor and the glory of God. Every mind and heart is drawn to the beautiful. As Balthasar would say let us "captivate people with the beautiful, then enchant them with the good and lead them to the true."

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece! 2 Jan. 2017
By Edward Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Any Christian would benefit from reading this book. Hans URs von Balthasar is one of the most cultured men of the 20th century, and certainly deserves his place as the greatest Catholic theologian of the 20th century. Be forewarned, however, that Balthasar places great demands on his readers to know and have read both church history, philosophy and the literature of the last several centuries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great friend and spiritual inspiration 30 Dec. 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I discovered Von Balthasar several years ago in my Christian journey. His writings are like music to me, filling my heart with love for God and his word. Reading him has always led me to worship God, sometimes falling on my knees in wonder and adoration. It seems to me that that is what theology should give us.
