This work of Von Balthasar is glorious Theology. He has a great methodology to his approach to Theology when it comes to his way of teaching, thus writing not to be understood as a finite man, also the Topic is not necessarily to be completely understood because of the mystery of the Subject!! this is a definite work of art.
