The first edition of this clear introduction to the major aspects of the work of Schillebeeckx was hailed as "an indispensable handbook of Schillebeeckx's theology." This revised edition includes a new essay on God and creation, and presents a never before published reflection of Schillebeeckx speaking about God today.
