The content of faith : the best of Karl Rahner's theological writings by Karl Rahner( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of 174 selections grouped under eight headings, covering the full spectrum of Christian theology from theological anthropology to eschatology. The aim of the book is "to guide people to Rahner's spirituality and thought, with as much authenticity and diversity as possible"; to present Rahner's thought, to the extent that this is humanly feasible (there are some four thousand items in his bibliography). All the essential perspectives and dimensions of his theological work have been brought into play: his unique, experimental style of thinking; his thorough (but generally unobtrusive) familiarity with Scripture, the Church Fathers, and medieval theology; his way of defining concepts precisely; his critical objections in the area of Church life and politics; and the spiritual inexhaustibility of his intimate writings on prayer. The selections themselves are introduced by a forty-one-page "portrait" of Rahner by Bishop Lehmann, providing a masterful summary of his life and the history of his thought, a profile of the basic structure of his theology, and an appreciation of his incalculable contribution to life of the Church and the course of theology in the twentieth century.

Christian mysticism : the future of a tradition by Harvey D Egan( Book )

10 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian mysticism is unique in its view of Jesus' death and resurrection as the very cause and exemplar of the mystical life in all its purity. Jesus' saving death on the cross exemplifies the mystical letting-go of everything consoling, tangible and finite in order to surrender totally to the mystery of the Father's unconditional love. This introduction to Christian mysticism presents four Christian mystics as paradigms of the classical tradition: St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and the unknown author of the Cloud of Unknowing. From this foundation he moves to two contemporary figures, Thomas Merton and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, each of whom reflects a contemporary transposition of the two mystical traditions: the apophatic, which emphasizes the radical difference between God and creatures, and the kataphatic, which emphasizes the similarity between God and creatures
