Who is a Christian? by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

51 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title of this book, Who Is a Christian?, is a short question. In its longer form, the question would be: In the changed circumstances after the Second Vatican Council--with its theme of aggiornamento, or "updating"--What does it really mean to be a Christian today? Von Balthasar begins by acknowleding the confusion of many in the post-conciliar period. He then describes the valuable contributions of the Council in these four areas: scripture, liturgy, ecumenism, and openness to the modern world. But he also describes what could go worng, and often did go wrong, with the implementation of the Council. Finally he points out the path to genuine renewal in the personal life of the Christian and in the ways he serves the world."--Back cover

Mysterium Paschale : the mystery of Easter by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Translated by Aidan Nichols OP This is an account, at once rigorously theological and warmly devotional, of the death and resurrection of Christ, and their significance for the Christian life. Von Balthasar offers sharp insights into some current controversies - for example, the 'bodiliness' of the Resurrection - and spiritual inspiration for the year round. This scholarly reflection of the climax of the Christian year is an established classic of contemporary Catholic theology."--
The moment of Christian witness by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

65 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balthasar puts his finger on the precise origin of all those elements in modern Christianity which see the real Jesus Christ as unknowable, the Gospels as merely the confused reflections of later Christians, and Christian tradition as a perpetuation of the mythology
Does Jesus know us--do we know him? by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

46 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two reflections that form this book do not claim to mediate in the conflict between naive piety and scientific exegesis. They arise from the conviction that only the Scriptures of the New Covenant, taken as witnesses of faith and in their entirety, can produce a tangible and credible portrait of Jesus Christ, whereas every critical attempt to approach him from a position other than that of the faith witnessed to in the Scriptures can only result in a pallid, distorted picture unworthy of belief (and hence devoid of interest). It is a fact: only the person who is convinced that Jesus knows him personally gains access to knowledge of him. And only the person who is confident of knowing him as he is, can know that he is also known by him
A theological anthropology by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

12 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and German and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is not intended as a comprehensive treatise on the theology of man in history. A few main themes are dealt with in a cyclic way, with the same or similar problems being touched on frequently at different levels. The problem of time--the middle and the end of time--crops up again and again, as does also the problem of open reason and revelation, the problem of Jews and pagans, etc. The questions selected are aspects of the same subject: where must we look to discover, in the fragmentariness of our existence, a tendency towards wholeness?" [Foreword]

13 editions published between 1960 and 1962 in English and German and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The office of Peter and the structure of the Church by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

31 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in German and English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this piece on the ministry of the Pope (the Petrine Office) and the nature of the Church, Hans Urs von Balthasar examines what he calls the anti-Roman attitude--a widespread hostility toward the Papacy. Unfortunately, this attitude exists even within the Catholic Church. How should we understand this? More importantly, how should we overcome it? Hans Urs von Balthasar answers these questions by providing a balanced discussion of the Papcy's place in the Church. He shows how the Office of Peter is an essential aspect of the ongoing life and mission of Christ's Church. On the one hand, the Papacy is not "above" the Church, the author insists, nor is the mystery of the Church reducible to the Papacy. On the other hand, the Petrine ministry of the Pope is a crucial element among other indispensable, constitutive principles, which include what von Balthasar calls the Johannine and Pauline dimensions, and above all else on the Marian aspect of the Church
