Karl Rahner: Theologian of the Graced Search for Meaning
Karl Rahner's (1904-84) creative proposals in theological areas made him one of the giants of 20th-century theology. The depth of his contributions has made study of Rahner's writings difficult, but Kelly's anthology of Rahner's writings overcomes the obstacles beautifully. A select bibliography neatly organizes the vast work by and on Rahner. Part of The Making of Modern Theology Series.
