Karl Rahner (1904-84) was one of the most significant theological voices of the twentieth century. For many his theology has come to symbolise the Catholic Church's entry into modernity. Part of his enduring appeal lies in his ability to reflect on a whole variety of issues in theology and spirituality and concentrate this plurality into a few basic convictions. This Cambridge Companion provides an accessible introduction to the main themes of Rahner's work. Written by an international array of experts, it will be of interest to both students and scholars alike. Each chapter serves as a guide to its topic and recommends further reading for additional study. The contributors also assess Rahner's significance for contemporary theology by bringing his thought into dialogue with many current concerns including: religious pluralism, spirituality, postmodernism, ecumenism, ethics and developments in political and feminist theologies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'There are useful passages on such Rahnerian topics as the supernatural existential, Jesus Christ as the entelechy of human existence, and the controversial anonymous Christian.' Church Times
'I heartily recommend The Cambridge Companion to Karl Rahner as a valuable vade mecum on the mystagogical journey that is the theology of one of this century's greatest thinkers.' America
'The editors clearly know their student audience and ought to be commended for providing us with essays that strike the proper balance between instruction and suggestion.' International Journal of Systematic Theology
'... excellent [resource] for both new students and scholars ...' Themelios
'... the highlight of the book is undoubtedly Stephen Duffy's excellent essay ...' Anvil
"The editors have assembled first-rate scholars from North America, Europe and Australia to discuss these issues. The authors are discerning, appreciative and, when necessary, constructively critical. Each article is followed by helpful suggestions for further reading. This feature, along with the editors' useful glossary of technical terms and an appendix on "Reading Rahner: a Guide for Students," makes the volume suitable both for those well versed in Rahner and those encountering this theological Mount Everest for the first time...I heartily recommend The Cambridge Companion to Karl Rahner as a valuable vade mecum on the mystagogical journey that is the theology of one of this century's greatest thinkers." America, Robert P. Imbelli, Boston College
"All in all, the book indicates a balanced view of Rahner in the English-speaking world, and it is hoped that this standard will be carried on by those who read Rahner in the twenty-first century without his formative influence." - Shun'ichi Takayanagi, S.J., Sophia University, Japan
