The theology of Karl Barth by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

56 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Theology of Karl Barth shows how a rethinking of basic issues in fundamental theology--concerning the relation of nature and grace, philosophy and theology, the "analogy of being" and the "analogy of faith"--Might lead to a rapprochement between the two great rivers of Christianity, without compromising the center of gravity of either. In the process the book makes a major contribution to renewed understanding of Christianity in a secularized modern world
The God question and modern man by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

84 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il libro propone per la prima volta in traduzione italiana il saggio (1956) di Hans Urs von Balthasar, noto come Gottesfrage: nel frattempo diventato un "classico" del suo pensiero. l'autore considerava questo suo saggio "un frammento". E tuttavia si tratta di un frammento che getta una luce sul tutto, sull'essenziale: <<in quanto teologo mi sono interessato soltanto alla realtà cristiana; e così, alla ne, tutto si accalca sullo stretto passaggio all'"unico necessario">>. nelle due parti che lo costituiscono il testo di Balthasar si concentra sul rapporto tra scienza e religione e tra religione e cristianesimo: la religione diventa così il punto focale della riflessione, mentre scienza e cristianesimo rappresentano le matrici sulle cui basi avviene il confronto, e pure lo scontro, con la cultura odierna. in questo contesto si pone oggi in modo particolarmente acuto la "questione di Dio", o meglio la domanda di Dio dell'uomo contemporaneo. Per questa strada l'uomo d'oggi può riscoprire in modo nuovo anche se stesso: <<Egli è libero come domanda rivolta a Dio>>

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

92 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 699 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

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

49 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 535 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

A theological anthropology by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and German and held by 529 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]
The moment of Christian witness by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

63 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 484 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
Elucidations by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

46 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the topics that von Balthasar addresses are the mystery of God, the role of the saints and the Marian principle, the nature of Tradition and Authority, the Pope, the Priesthood, the nature of religious life, unity among believers, the subject of why remain in the Church, and more. Each of the twenty-five chapters focuses on a particular topic, and together they bear witness to an underlying comprehensive vision on essential spiritual questions for modern believers

The Christian state of life by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

34 editions published between 1956 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sole purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive meditation on the foundations and background of St. Ignatius' contemplation on the 'call of Christ', on the answer we must give if we want 'to give great proof of our love' and on the choice explicitly demanded of us: either to follow Christ our Lord to the 'first state of life, which is that of observing the commandments', of which he has given us an example by his obedience to his parents; or to follow him to 'the second state, which is that of evangelical perfection', of which he has given us an example by leaving his family 'to devote himself exclusively to the service of his eternal Father'. And this so that we can 'arrive at perfection' -- which is, of course, the perfection of Christian love -- 'in whatever state or way of life God our Lord may grant us to choose...The goal of our meditation is to understand why this act of choosing a 'state or way of life' 'within our Holy Mother, the hierarchical Church' is possible and necessary in the first place, and why there should be any either-or since both ways are capable of leading us to the same 'perfection of love', just as the same act, viewed from different perspectives, can be either absolute or relative." [Preface]
