The Best of Karl Rahner's Theological Writings

No single anthology could hope to capture the vast breadth of Karl Rahner’s work, but Herder & Herder's collection contains 174 significant selections that span the period from the early 1950s to 1980 and reflect the power and erudition of this seminal theologian’s thought.

“I have been reading Karl Rahner for almost thirty years and teaching his thought for over fifteen. I consider this anthology to be the best point of entry into the life’s work of this remarkable theologian. No anthology can substitute for reading all the works of this theological titan. Nonetheless, as the best cross-section of Rahner’s theological writings available, I consider it the ‘Norton’s’ of all anthologies of his work.”
Harvey D. Egan, S.J., Boston College (from the Translation Editor's Preface)
