Page 17 - I would not have written this book if someone else had done it; and, at the same time, it could just be that in the great Catholic literary figures we find more originality and vibrancy of thought — an intellectual life thriving superbly in a free and open landscape — than we do in the somewhat broken-winded theology of our time, which is satisfied with quite slender fare.
Page 18 - Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. 30 When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; 31 in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place.

About the author (1996)

Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-88), a Swiss theologian and priest, is considered by many the most important Catholic theologian of the twentieth century. Incredibly prolific and diverse, he wrote over one hundred books and many hundreds of articles. A favorite theologian and spiritual writer of Pope Francis, as well as the two previous Popes, he was called the most cultured man of our time by Henri de Lubac, and Karl Rahner described his achievements as really breathtaking.
