The Cambridge Companion to Hans Urs von Balthasar (Cambridge Companions to Religion)
Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905 1988) is one of the most prolific, creative and wide-ranging theologians of the twentieth century who is just now coming to prominence. But because of his range of competencies and his staggerings output, Balthasar has never been an easily-categorized theologian. This Companion brings together a wide range of theologians both to outline and to assess the work of someone whom history will surely rank someday with Origen, John Calvin, and Karl Barth. It is both accessible and wide-ranging and will appeal greatly to scholars.
