Item description for Unless You Become Like This Child by Hans Urs Von Balthasar...

In one of the last books written before his death, the great theologian provides a moving and profound meditation on the theme of spiritual childhood. Somewhat startlingly, von Balthasar puts forth his conviction that the central mystery of Christianity is our transformation from world-wise, self-sufficient "adults" into abiding children of the Father of Jesus by the grace of their Spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Unless You Become Like This Child?

Theology unfolded  Jan 18, 2000
This is an excellent book for those Christians who wish to gain a deeper understanding of Jesus's teaching "unless you become like this child...". This book also provides a helpfull resource to Catholics who may be constantly challenged by fundamentalist Christians to be born again. Cardinal Von Balthazar very clearly explains what is involved in being like a child unto the Lord and gives his readers many insights into the mystery of life with God, the Father.

It is a short book in terms of pages, but each page is packed with reflections. This book is best read as part of a meditation regime or one's "lectio divina" (prayerful study of religious texts).

I think readers who are looking for a substantive theological exposition will appreciate this book with its balance between deep theology and careful reasoning.
