Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rahner Philosophy of Being, knowledge, Freedom, Faith & Love  Jun 1, 2004
"It is the sine qua non of Rahner studies...the best key to understanding his Omnia Opera." Andrew Talon

Aquinas Reinterpreted:
This insightful and bold work of Karl Rahner, closely followed and complemented his dissertation thesis "Spirit in the World," rejected by Prof. Honecker, his mentor in Freiburg University. Prodigious young Rahner got his intuition from a fellow Jesuit, and skillfully rephrased his new interpretation of Aquinas with M. Heidegger's neo-Kantian terminology. Fifteen lectures just delivered before the break of W.W.II at Salzburg, Austria, made the chapters of this book.

Publisher, Translator & Editor:
The prestigious Continuum should be commented for taking this task of rendering the translation of this First Edition by Fr. Donceel, of Fordham, who gave an informing preface, while Prof. Tallon of Marquette University edited the lectures into chapters as such, with a good introduction and Notes. He confessed that:
"Rahner taught us to be fearless in seeking truth from any human quarter, and his equally unrestricted devotion to teaching and preaching the truth meant he was often in trouble with Rome."

In Conclusion:
"From the start we have seen that theology in the catholic sense of the word, as a listening to the personal revelation of the supremely free and transcendent God to humanity, cannot be set up in function of humanity, that it always rests on the fact of such a Logos of God. all sciences, are in a true sense, anthropology, except for theo-logy. all of them, irrespective of their reference to things, are based in their reality and procedure upon the logos of humanity; they are the 'things in the spirit of humankind." K.R.

A Posteriori:
"However, those who do not share this a posteriori prejudice and who have not, from the start, given up the courage of the absolute within the finite, cannot find it difficult to establish the essentially qualitative difference of Christianity from all other religions, to recognize the Church as the sign raised among the nations."
"When this courage is lacking, when one claims at the most only a certain preference above other forms of Christian religion, one gives up the historical uniqueness of God's word and together with the courage of believing in a real revelation of God." Karl Rahner
