Item description for Explorations in Theology, Vol. 1: The Word Made Flesh (Explorations In Theology #1) by Hans Urs von Balthasar, A. V. Littledale & Alexander Dru...
Overview Volume I This four volume series is not intended to be a formal or systematic theology; rather, von Balthasar describes it as a sketchbook that is by nature incomplete. He writes,"Human work however is necessarily incomplete, so that it may well happen that here and there we will catch on the wing, as it were, an idea that a more academic work may overlook. Nor should it be surprising that in a sketchbook certain themes contstantly recur, that various concepts are approached and studied from many angles--this kind of repetitiveness and overlapping is due to the fascination generated by the unseen core of the subject matter." Volume I- Deals with the Word of God in revelation and redemption. Volume II- Deals with the "Bride of Christ," the church. Volume III- Deals with the Holy Spirit as Creator. Volume IV- Deals with the Holy Spirit in the Church.
