Editorial Reviews

Mary Deeley
Raffelt has compiled a wonderful collection of pieces to serve as a companion to Rahner's theological writings. Sermons and homilies cover each segment of the church year from Advent to ordinary time and span nearly 40 years of Rahner's proclamation of the Good News. In some cases, the reader will laugh with Rahner at a world that seems to have gone mad; in others, he or she will silently reflect on a great truth. Whichever emotion comes to them, readers cannot fail to be impressed by the profundity of Rahner's thought. Unlike his theological writings, which can be obscure, these sermons provide a smooth entrance for those who are just beginning to read this fine contemporary theologian and preacher.
