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

"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

13 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and German and held by 523 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]

Does Jesus know us--do we know him? by Hans Urs von Balthasar( Book )

43 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 370 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
