CHRISTIANITY WITH AN EXISTENTIAL SLANT

by danejafield on Oct 24, 2008

Rahner benefited from his association with Heidegger, and in this book succeeds in familiarizing the reader with what I assume he gained from that relationship. The first few chapters are spiritual in their exploration of man, God, the man-god relationship, revelation, and guilt. However, the last few chapters are unbearable due to Rahner's towing of the Catholic doctrinal line. The first chapters are good enough to make up for the poor quality of the last part of the book, especially for one like myself, I conjecture here, who hasn't read Heidegger, and, even if one has read him, these chapters are sound philosophy within a theological view and provide suitable preparation for further readings in feminist, postmodern, postcolonial, liberation, and womanist theologies.
