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

55 editions published between 1951 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,328 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 glory of the Lord : a theological aesthetics by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

70 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work opens with a critical review of developments in Protestant and Catholic Theology since the Reformation which have led to the steady neglect of aesthetics in Christian theology. From here, von Balthasar turns to the central theme of the volume: the question of theological knowledge. He re-examines the nature of Christian believing (here he quickly draws widely on such theological figures as Anselm, Pascal and Newman) which gives due place to the particular kind of 'knowing' which develops within the personal relationship to the believer to the God mediated through the revelation-form of Jesus Christ

A theological anthropology by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

12 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and German and held by 528 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]

15 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and German and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

52 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 503 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 Christian state of life by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

27 editions published between 1956 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 455 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]
