That they may all be one the call to unity by Walter Kasper ( )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cardinal Kasper is a distinguished theologian who was a colleague of Cardinal Ratzinger, Karl Rahner, and Hans Kung at The Universities of Münster and Tübingen. Kasper now heads the Vatican's Council for Promoting Christian Unity, with the specific task of fostering relations between the Catholic Church and other Christian Churches and Ecclesial communities. Here he outlines his vision for the unity of Christian Churches. A man with an open mind, Kasper covers one of the major responsibilities of the contemporary Catholic Church. His perspective of the uniqueness of The Catholic Church and its
Harvesting the fruits aspects of Christian faith in ecumenical dialogue by Walter Kasper ( )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Second Vatican Council declared the restoration of unity among Christians to be one of its principal concerns. Division among the Churches scandalises the world and damages that most holy cause, the preaching of The Gospel to every creature. A key figure to have worked tirelessly at these aims is Cardinal Walter Kasper, one of the most experienced, authoritative, and respected members of the Vatican hierarchy. Here Cardinal Kasper summarises the results of the Catholic Church's official dialogues with Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican and Methodist Churches over forty years, sets out a blueprint for 'consensus and convergence', and sets out a map for the way forward for ecumenism. From such a source, this document is therefore of crucial importance. The book focuses on the major issues in ecumenical dialogue - Jesus Christ, The Holy Trinity, Justification, The Church and The Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist. Cardinal Kasper explains the key issues at stake and offers signposts for the way forward so that the wish of Jesus may be fulfilled: That They May All Be One
Jesus the Christ by Walter Kasper ( Book )
15 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here at last is a reissue of Kasper's major work with a brilliant new introduction surveying recent developments in Christology.

The book also provides a solid theological basis for preaching
The Plurality of ministries ( Book )

The God of Jesus Christ by Walter Kasper ( Book )
14 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and German and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kasper is a master synthesiser, and his display of erudition alone makes this book a worthy read and an invaluable resource for questions of God and Trinity. Using admittedly polemical language, he calls for a 'theological theology' which makes the explanation of the confession of the triune God its first priority, not only for speculative but also for pastoral reasons. This is the reissue of a theological work of considerable importance for which Cardinal Kasper has written an entirely new introduction taking modern developments in theology fully into account
