Hans Urs von Balthasar

This is an account, at once rigorously theological and warmly devotional, of the death and resurrection of Christ, and their significance for the Christian life. Von Balthasar offers sharp insights into some current controversies—for example, the 'bodiliness' of the Resurrection—and spiritual inspiration for the year round. This scholarly reflection of the climax of the Christian year is an established classic of contemporary Catholic theology.

"Mysterium Paschale is the most profound contemporary theology of the Cross in the Catholic tradition."
—John McDade, S.J.

"One of the most important works in Hans Urs von Balthasar's large oeuvre …"
—Journal of Religion

"One of von Balthasar's most revealing works: the major themes of his theology are knit together in a concentrated meditation on the triduum mortis—an astonishing achievement of theological and imaginative attention."
—John Riches
