All the characteristics that make von Balthasar's work so distinctive and valuable are to be found here: breadth of vision, loveliness of style, and an intuitive-contemporary passion that allows him to pray intellectually and think 'cordially'.
In his warm and extensive introduction to the book, Medard Kehl speaks of von Balthasar's "unclouded, almost childlike joy in the richness and beauty of the Mystery" of the threefold God, which "is evidenced in this interpretation of the creed."

von Balthasar' thoughts, as always, run quite deep. The book is small and is very readable, but it still is a book you will need to read more than once and will want to read more than once.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
