"Karl Rahner (1904-1984), a Jesuit priest, was one of the most influential Catholic theologians of the twentieth century. A major force at Vatican II, his writings effected a paradigm shift in modern theology. Yet it was the experience of prayer and a deeply mystical faith that animated and inspired his scholarly activity. In the end, Rahner's message was simple and accessible: an appeal to recognize and appropriate God's self-gift, the mystery that Christianity calls grace - a reality that is at least latent in every human mind and heart." "This anthology shows that if Rahner was an important theologian, it was because he was more fundamentally a modern spiritual master."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Review: Spiritual Writings

User Review  - Crystal - Goodreads

The book is edited by Philip Endean SJ and contains essays, lectures, and some letters too. I found the letters really interesting - they were actually answers to letters Rahner had received from people asking him religious questions. Read full review
