Karl Rahner (1904-84), a Jesuit priest, was one of the most influential Catholic theologians of the twentieth century. A major force at Vatican II, his writings effected a paradigm shift in modern theology. Yet it was the experience of prayer and a deeply mystical faith that animated and inspired his scholarly activity. This anthology shows that if Rahner was an important theologian, it was because he was more fundamentally a modern spiritual master.
Philip Endean, an English Jesuit, is editor of the journal The Way and author of Karl Rahner and Ignatian Spirituality.
