In the twenty-five years since his death, Karl Rahner moved from being the most celebrated Roman Catholic theologian of the twentieth century to among the most neglected of the twenty-first. This work attempts to redress this imbalance, with the contributors treating all the major themes and legacies of his theology. Rahner emerges from this collection as a paragon of a theology which is never insular or inward-looking but is always bold and innovative in its engagement with the range of questions with which contemporary theology is ineluctably confronted by our twenty-first-century world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Karl Rahner, one of the theological giants of the twentieth century, has been rather neglected in recent years. The unique combination he offers of the speculative and the pastoral, the spiritual and the theological, the traditional and the modern, has, as the authors in this volume suggest, still much to teach us. A revival of interest in Rahner is long overdue, and in this varied and often fascinating collection, it has begun." (Professor Karen Kilby, University of Nottingham)
"In carrying out a consummate retrieval of the best of Karl Rahner's theology, the editors and authors associated with this volume have performed a signal service, not just for the academic theological community but for all who resist the nostalgic lure of restoration and believe, like Rahner himself, that the way forward for Christianity is an open and ecumenical one." (Professor Emeritus Sean Freyne, Trinity College Dublin)
"This work is up to date and is a must-have secondary source for any serious Karl Rahner scholar. An excellent, stimulating read and challenge." (Scott Harrower, Theological Book Review)
