Glory of the Lord VOL 1: Seeing The Form

Front Cover
A&C Black, Jan 1, 1982 - Religion - 692 pages
opens with a critical review of developments in Protestant and Catholic theology since the Reformation which have led to the steady neglect of aesthetics in Christian theology. Then, von Balthasar turns to the central theme of the volume, the question of theological knowledge. He re-examines the nature of Christian believing, drawing widely on such theological figures as Anselm, Pascal and Newman.
