What People are Saying About This

John M. McDermott

Appreciative of Rahner's speculative genius, yet aware of his limitations, Burke's book turns a new page in Rahnerian studies, showing the middle way between adoring disciples and carping critics. He has uncovered the central paradoxical structure of dialectical analogy in Rahner's major treatises from philosophical foundations to his theory of dogmatic development over the nature-grace relation, Trinity, Symbolic Theology, Christology, and Ecclesiology. With its complete mastery of the original sources and wide knowledge of secondary literature Burke's book deserves to be read by all who appreciate Rahner and even by those who criticize him.
