About this title:
Synopsis:
In Hans Urs von Balthasar's masterwork, The Glory of the Lord, the great theologian used the term "theological aesthetic" to describe what he believed to the most accurate method of interpreting the concept of divine love, as opposed to approaches founded on historical or scientific grounds. In this newly translated book, von Balthasar delves deeper into this exploration of what love means, what makes the divine love of God, and how we must become lovers of God in the footsteps of saints like Francis de Sales, John of the Cross and Therese of Lisieux.

Based in the theological aesthetic form, Love Alone is Credible brings a fresh perspective on an oft-explored subject. A deeply insightful and profound theological meditation that serves to both deepen and inform the faith of the believer.

Book Description: Ignatius Pr June 2005, 2005. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. It's folly to call any book by von Balthasar an easy grasp, but Love Alone Is Credible is simple in that it concerns itself only with God's great deed: his love as manifest in Christ. Yet in Von Balthasar's case, simplicity does not exclude complexity. His methodology in this little book is none other than the ''theological aesthetic'' he spent volumes explicating in The Glory of the Lord -- namely, ''the reception, perceived with the eyes of faith, of the self-interpreting glory of the sovereignly free love of God.'' What does that mean? Neither religious philosophy nor human experience is adequate when considering the truth of Christianity. Only revelation -- come from God and source of its own integrating center -- can reveal love, because love can only be seen by the eyes of love, and only God is love. This kind of logic (if one can call it that) is dizzying in its circularity but fundamental to Von Balthasar's thesis. Surveying the annals of history, it's evident the lovers are the ones who know God best. Petrarch, the infamous lover-poet himself, puts it beautifully: ''Precisely because we are Christians, philosophy must become for us nothing but the love of wisdom; God's wisdom, however, is his logos -- it is Christ; and thus we must love him in order to become true philosophers.'' 153 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 92752
