The brilliant theologian and philosopher Balthasar writes about Gods involvement with man and mans involvement with God in the Old and the New Testaments, and how that interaction of the divine with the human reveals the meaning of true freedom that man is always hungering for but often strives after in wrong and dangerous ways. He shows that Gods free revelation of himself in Christ is an invitation into the realm of absolute and divine freedom, in which alone human freedom can be fully realized

User Review  - Ian - Goodreads

Magnificent take on Scripture and Christian life in the first half. Moments of brilliance in the second half, but a somewhat unsatisfactory take on Christian political involvement. That aspect of the book poses good questions but hasn't aged well. The rest is wonderful. Read full review
