Overview

In the twelve months before his sudden death, Hans Urs von Balthasar had been writing a series of reflections on the twelve articles of a Apostles' Creed. These texts, which are undoubtedly among the last things he wrote, take on the character of a legacy, a spiritual testament. For they among in their extraordinary compactness and depth to a little "summa" of his theology. What he had set out in detail in numerous book over five decades, he summarizes here in contemplative plainness and simplicity.

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."

    Spiritual and thoughtful

    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.
