Probably no theologian has exercised so profound an influence on Catholic theology during the last half century as Karl Rahner. Patrick Burke examines the structure of dialectical analogy as it appears in each of the major themes of Rahner's theology-as an indispensable key to the correct interpretation of his thought. He also exposes a tension within the system that needs to be addressed if the complex balance of Rahner's vision is to be fully understood
Patrick Burke is a parish priest of Our Lady and St. Ninian's Bannockburn, Scotland and chaplain to Stirling University. He is also Editor of Faith, a bi-monthly theological and pastoral review, published in the United Kingdom.

Editorial Reviews

"Turns a new page in Rahnerian studies, showing the middle way between adoring disciples and carping critics. . With its complete mastery of the original sources and wide knowledge of secondary literature Burke's book deserves to be read by all who appreciate Rahner and even by those who criticize him."
