Item description for Credo: Meditations on the Apostles' Creed by Hans Urs Von Balthasar...

In the twelve months before his sudden death, Hans Urs von Balthasar had been writing a series of reflections on the twelve articles of the Apostles' Creed. These texts, which are undoubtedly among the last things he wrote, take on the character of a legacy, a spiritual testament. For they amount in their extraordinary compactness and depth to a little "summa" of his theology. What he had set out in detail in numerous book over five decades, he summarizes here in contemplative plainness and simplicity.

All the characteristics that make von Balthasar's work so distinctive and valuable are to be found here; breadth of vision, loveliness of style, and an intuitive-contemporary passion that allows him to "pray intellectually and think 'cordially.'".

In his warm and extensive introduction to the book, Medard Kehl speaks of von Balthasar's "unclouded, almost childlike joy in the richness and beauty of the Mystery" of the threefold God, which "is evidenced in his interpretation of the creed".

Reviews - What do customers think about Credo: Meditations on the Apostles' Creed?

Meditations  Feb 5, 2006
The author discusses the Creed by analizing each line with a depth one wouldn't expect from such a short book. This is definitely a quick and easy read, but it's also deep in meaning. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Creed by reading, and all things considered, this is well worth your money.
an absolute beauty  Mar 28, 2002
in this short meditation on the apostle's creed, von balthasar gives us a summary of his own theolgy, firmly based in the Trinity and Fatherhood of God; firmly Catholic and saturated in the orthodox doctrine of the Church. it's too bad that this book wasn't five hundred pages, but the strength of this book and the Truth to which it points can, i think, best be sought and got in prayer; a truth which von balthasar new well enough. this book is an absolute beauty, and i highly recommend it.
