Reviews - What do customers think about Glory, Grace, and Culture: The Work of Hans Urs Von Balthasar?
Great information ...in time Mar 19, 2007
This is a great book but needs to be digested slowly. Han Urs Von Balthasar is a fantastic theologian but not a "light read" by any stretch of the imagination. Take your time and you will reap tremendous rewards.
