"'Lucid, perceptive, thickly textured, theologically rich, and refreshingly concise - Kilby's presentation of Rahner's theology is a must for students of Rahner, be they first year seminarians or senior theologians. I have taught her book for years and I still learn something new from it every time I return - it's brilliant reading.' Serene Jones, Yale Divinity School 'This is an excellent book, very useful for students and one of the clearest introductions to Rahner.' John McDade, Principal of Heythrop College, London 'Karen Kilby's book will be invaluable to teachers and students because of its lucid, learned, and penetrating understanding of one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century. It is the best single slim volume on Rahner that I know.' Gavin D'Costa, University of Bristol"
