Reflections on life and vocation Oct 20, 2000
It is unfortunate that this lovely work will never receive the credit it deserves, because it is not "one size fits all." Karl Rahner's prayers, as presented here, are not general devotions, but deep meditations, simply offered but highly intense in their fashion, regarding various aspects of his own life in Christ. It is a wonderful, rather humbling look at the gratitude, awe, and love which this great theologian offered to His God. However, it is not a suitable gift for anyone who is looking only for a book of general devotions, because many chapters relate directly to Rahner's own circumstances.
