    Book details

Hans Urs yon Balthasar is arguably one of the greatest -- and certainly one of the most influential -- Catholic theologians of the twentieth century. Awarded the prestigious Paul VI Prize for theology and designated a Cardinal just before his death in 1988 by Pope John Paul II, Balthasar's writings have clearly helped to shape the theological style of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. His seven-volume series The Glory of the Lord provides a rich and complex theological aesthetics approaching God (unusually) through the transcendental attribute of Beauty (Glory) rather than directly through Truth or Goodness, and drawing not only upon theology but upon the entire breadth of the European literary and religious tradition -- ancient medieval, modern, and postmodern.

Nichols has set himself the task of guiding us through the often difficult seven-volume Glory of the Lord, Balthasar's vast work on a vast subject: the beauty of God. With this very good book, Nichols has done us a great service." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
