Description

Hans Urs von Batthasar (1905-1988) was a Swiss theologian whose magisterial discussion of the work of Karl Barth gained him international recognition. Balthasar's Prayer (the German original was Contemplative Prayer) is a theological investigation that approaches the topic from several different angles: the doctrine of the Trinity, liturgy, the 'encounter' understanding of Martin Buber, the place of mysticism and the role of reason. Protestants may be surprise at the Word-orientation of his discussion. All Christians are indebted to this thinker who exemplified expertise in liturgy, philosophy and theology, yet was most 'at home' on his knees in adoration of his Lord. Lectures include:

  • The Primacy of Prayer
  • Von Balthasar's Anthropology
  • The Nature and Place of Reason; Mysticism
  • Prayer and Liturgy
