FRONT JACKET FLAP TEXT: The Christian venture is the same for all Christians, whatever their chosen path to fulfillment. They must gradually mature into that hoping love and loving hope in which they can completely lose themselves in God. It is only in this existential selflessness that they will be free to serve the world. Having lost themselves, they can stir others to that love which in the end distinguishes the Kingdom of God from every other communal utopia. In a situation of transition and uncertainty, how are Christians to find their spiritual orientation? Where lies the way to an existential realization of faith which is neither ideology nor myth? In Christian at the Crossroads Karl Rahner probes anew into the concrete particularities of a modern Christian spirituality. He begins with a reconsideration of fundamentals: What is man? Why am I a Christian today? What is the irreducible kernel of Christian faith? With this as preamble, he turns to specific elements of the spiritual life: the nature of faith, the possibility and necessity of prayer, the Spiritual Exercises, Lent, a theology of dying, and Easter hope. In these uncommon reflections on commonplace themes, Father Rahner’s deep pastoral concern once more reveals him to be a modern master of the spiritual life. ISBN 0816412049.
