Most widely held works by Hans Urs von Balthasar
The theology of Karl Barth by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

55 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,327 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 1,204 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 )

91 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 691 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 531 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
