Karl Rahner (1904-1984) was one of the most significant theological voices of the twentieth century. For many his theology symbolizes the Catholic Church's entry into modernity. Part of his enduring appeal lies in his ability to reflect on a variety of issues in theology and spirituality and direct this plurality into a few basic convictions. In addition to the main themes of Rahner's work, this Companion assesses his significance for contemporary theology through dialogues with many current concerns including: religious pluralism, spirituality, postmodernism, ecumenism, ethics and developments in political and feminist theologies.
Mary E. Hines is Professor of Theology and Chair of the Religious Studies Department at Emmanuel College, Boston.

Editorial Reviews

"All in all, the book indicates a balanced view of Rahner in the English-speaking world, and it is hoped that this standard will be carried on by those who read Rahner in the twenty-first century without his formative influence." - Shun'ichi Takayanagi, S.J., Sophia University, Japan
