Item Description...
This short volume (154 pages) addresses specifically Christ's relationship to history and humanity, based on the incarnation and the hypostatic union of God and man. Christ's relationship to humanity in general is the key to understanding God's relationship to the world, since Christ is the fullest revelation of God in history. von Balthasar begins with the incarnation and the "essence" of humanity and moves from there to address the meaning of nature and history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Big Insights in a Little Book!  Dec 21, 2005
Unlike many Christian thinkers who do theology through the lens of speculative metaphysics, von Balthasar follows Irenaeus in viewing theology through the drama of history. In this short but significant work, von Balthasar presents Jesus Christ as the norm by which all history--secular history as well as salvation history--ought to be interpreted. As God, Jesus is the universal norm for all humanity who stands outside of history; as Man He became particular within history. Thus He becomes the reconciliation of the historical conflict between the Rational/Universal and the Empirical/Particular. By seeking to become one with Him, our own history becomes meaningful, purposeful, and significant.
