Tragedy Under Grace: Reinhold Schneider on the Experience of the Westby Hans Urs von Balthasar, Brian McNeil
In Tragedy Under Grace, Hans Urs von Balthasar presents a magisterial portrait of one of the most fascinating figures of the European Catholic renaissance, the historian and man of letters, Reinhold Schneider, whose response to the spiritual collapse of the West led him to Christ and to an interpretation of history in the light of the cross. Balthasar's painstaking reconstruction of Schneider's spiritual and intellectual itinerary, which traces the author's discovery of the presence of grace in the tragic conflicts of history, will be valuable for those desiring to understand the historical experience of the West, the relationship between faith and culture, or the role of the Catholic layman in the world. Anyone looking for a profound - and costly - response to the cultural crisis of our own day will also find in this book a source of understanding and inspiration.
