Encounter the towering thought of Karl Rahner (1904-84), one of the most significant voices in Catholic theology in the 20th century. An extraordinarily productive and creative theologian who wrote over 5,000 works, he played a central role as a theological advisor to the bishops at Vatican II. His influence continues to live on in the church and world today.
Under the guidance of leading theologian Fr. Richard Lennan, you will explore the impact of Vatican II and how it shaped our understanding of the church. Through exploring the ideas of such noted theologians as Yves Congar and Walter Kasper, you will gain new insights into the theology of the church.
As a thoughtful Catholic, you have asked the big questions about God, faith, purpose, and meaning. Since the age of the apostles, great scholars and lay Christians alike have prayerfully reflected upon these topics. But until now most of our 2,000-year-old Christian theological tradition was accessible only to professionally theologians. Now, celebrated theologian and award-winning professor Fr. Richard Lennan distills the essence of this tradition, making it accessible to you. This engaging, 12-lecture audio course gives you a thorough overview.
