Description

As one of the pillars of the nouvelle théologie movement, a main influence upon the Second Vatican Council, and one of the few figures to complete a full-scale multi-volume systematics, Hans Urs von Balthasar is undoubtedly one of the towering figures of twentieth-century theology. Until now, the structural undergirding of von Balthasar’s main contribution, a weighty 15-volume, three-part “triptych” dogmatics, has not been assessed. In this volume, the author presents an analysis of von Balthasar’s work in dogmatics and provides the structural linchpin for understanding the whole of this massive (and massively important) systematic theology by reconstructing the metaphysics of von Balthasar. Taking the person of Jesus Christ as the metaphysical starting point, the project highlights the fundamental connections to key doctrinal, historical, and philosophical issues. This is a critical volume for professors, scholars, and students in systematic theology, philosophical theology, and the study of twentieth-century Catholic and Protestant theology and history.

"Crisp writing, clear thought, insightful reflection on a seminal and influential thinker’s take on one of the most fundamental themes of theology—what more would you want from a book in theology? This is in fact what you get with Johnson’s Christ and Analogy. Whether you are interested in von Balthasar, in theological method, or in relationship between metaphysics and theology you should read this book."
