Rahner Simplified Feb 6, 2010
Rahner can be etherial at times, abstract and challenging to follow in depth. Then again, it's theology, after all, and it is abstract by nature isn't it? Kilby succinctly renders it easily understandable and with sufficient quoted passages to give you some genuine depth. A good primer to undiluted Rahner later if you choose. (And Rahner is great!).
Karl Raher: A Brief Introduction Aug 3, 2008
Many students of theology, or those interested in theology are afraid to approach the work of Karl Rahner. While it is true that Rahner possessed an intellect matched by few philosophers or theologians of his day, his work has left an indelible mark on both Christianity and specifically Roman Catholic theology. An excellent way to approach Rahner's work is to read Dr. Kilby's well written little book on Rahner. Using the format of a systematic approach to Rahner's theology, in just over 100 pp., subjects such as "God and Humanity"; "Sacraments and Symbols"; Rahner's "Philosophy and Theology"; and "Rahner the Man"; are succinctly and deftly explained. Karl Rahner was a seminal figure in theology during the 20th century and Dr. Kilby's book makes a person want to explore Rahner in more depth. This book has been endorsed by Fergus Kerr in "Reviews in Religion and Theology." I'm just a lowly grad-student, but if you don't want to take my word, please read Fergus Kerr's review. This little tome will pique your interest and if it doesn't, it is still a great buy and you won't lose more than one or two day's lunch money to invest in it.A Brief Introduction to Karl Rahner
