Hans Urs von Balthasar

If you've noticed my love of Lucy Beckett, this will not be a surprise. Here's a link to all the Hans Urs von Balthasar you could ever want (and more!).

Whatever side you take in the discussion on Christ's descent into Hell (that's a raging battle), you must acknowledge Balthasar as one of the greatest theologians of the 20th-century.

He worked under the well-reasoned conviction that Truth is one with the Good and the Beautiful. All three of which are personally interested in you. I especially like the title of one of the articles on this website: "Love Alone is Believable." So true, so true.

What wonders the world continues to weave... a philosopher Mom who positively rocks over von Balthasar!!! I can only bow in respect and admiration... Fergus Kerr, who has turned quite dismissive of Balthasar's "nuptial theology", i guess needs to go back to the womb to appreciate what Balthasar is all about. These analytic philosophers are victims of their own coldness...
