This innovative book discloses Karl Rahner's foremost achievement: discovering and delineating an ethos of Catholicism, a multi-faceted and comprehensive approach to life in Christ. Karl Rahner's Theological Aesthetics does so by placing the German Jesuit and his teacher, philosopher Martin Heidegger, into a richly detailed dialogue on aesthetics. The book treats classic Rahner topics such as anthropology and Christology. But it breaks new ground by exploring themes such as angels, Mary, and the apocalypse, juxtaposed with analogous philosophical topics in Heidegger.

This book is made up of a collection of texts unavailable in one volume until now, including six previously untranslated essays, from a major theologian of the twentieth century. Rahner's numerous writings focused on the revelation of God as mystery in the world and on the human being who has an essential openness towards the transcendent. His articles reveal an empathy and a depth of insight into the relationship between theology, faith and the arts which are remarkable and may take the reader by surprise. More recently, Rahner's contribution to the growing field of theology and the arts has been recognised by leading theologians on this subject. He asserts that theology must integrate the verbal and non-verbal arts as they are authentic means of human self-expression, of religious experience, and of God's self-communication; and therefore they are essential sources of theology. Rahner argues that theology, understood as a person's 'reflexive self-expression' about him- or herself 'in the light of divine revelation', cannot be regarded as complete until 'the arts become an intrinsic moment of theology itself'.

In A Gadamerian Reading of Karl Rahner's "Theology of Grace and Freedom," Gadamer's philosophical hermeneutics are compared with Rahner's transcendental anthropology. It discusses grace, and freedom, as foundational experiences, and examines scholastic and other traditions in the light of Gadamer's thought. It provides a thorough discussion of Rahner's critique of the Augustinian understanding of grace and freedom by relating it to Greek Patristic Pauline understandings.

The author of this book seeks to penetrate the «heart» of Karl Rahner's theology by asking: What does it truly mean to say that Jesus Christ is the redeemer of the world? Rise presents an analysis of the fundamental conception in Rahner's theology, with special attention to the way in which Rahner combines two trajectories, the academic and the spiritual. This combination is the basis for Rahner's interpretation of the (trinitarian) doctrine of God, christology and soteriology. In the final chapter, Rise reflects on the relevance of Rahner to postmodern culture and shows that Rahner's understanding of Jesus is potentially very fruitful in an age marked by pluralism, ethical relativism and the lack of a total vision which could give life a meaning.

This critical volume focuses on the issue of continuity and discontinuity of the Christian concept of theosis, or deification, in the intellectual history of ideas. It addresses the origin, development, and function of theosis from its antecedents in ancient Greek philosophy to its nuanced use in contemporary theological thought. Often seen as a heresy in the Protestant West, the revival of interest in deification in both lay and scholastic circles heralds a return to foundational understandings of salvation in the Christian church before the divisions of East and West, Catholic and Protestant.
