The Systematic Thought of Von Balthasarby Kevin Mongrain
Synopses & Reviews
Is there a single driving force unifying the diverse writings of Hans Urs von Balthasar? Kevin Mongrain points to von Balthasars retrieval of Irenaeus of Lyons. In Irenaeus, von Balthasar found inspiration for a genuinely Christian theology that resists the recurring danger of gnosticism while honoring the Mystery of God.
As we near the bicentennial of Von Balthasar's birth, we welcome this brilliant study of how Von Balthasar drew from the early church for his vision of what great theology should be.
George Lindbeck raves that "this important study is, as far as I know, the best comprehensive account of Von Balthasar's thought in any language." As we near the bicenentennial of Von Balthasar's birth, we welcome this brilliant study of how Von Balthasar drew from the early church for his vision of what great theology should be.
