    Von Balthasar is not a light read He reuires so much concentration because his learning is so great and his language so full and the visions he provides of God so transcendent and so intimate at the same time that nothing can be rushed I do fear I have rushed through this book It begs to be reread even as I look at it now to comment on it He begins asking What is specifically Christian about Christianity? The answers provided historically first cosmological and then after the Enlightenment the anthropological are limited For neither the world as a whole nor man in particular can provide the measure for what God wishes to say to man in Christ; God's Word is unconditionally theo logical or better theo pragmatic what God wishes to say to man is a deed on his behalf a deed that interprets itself before man and for his sake and only therefore to him and in him What we intend to say about this deed in this book is that it is only credible as love specifically as God's own love the manifestation of which is the glory of God And so follows a brief reflection on God's love and how that love works out in us his church It is only when we look the Crucified One in the eye that we recognize the abyss of selfishness even of that which we are accustomed to call love God's Spirit seeks a comprehensive answer from the whole of creation to God's loving Word in Christ and helps give birth to this answer through the most intense labor pains Rom 819 27; God's love from below sighs for God's love from above until the miracle of love brings about their perfect nuptial union Rev 219f

    For neither the world as a whole nor man in particular can provide the measure for what God wishes to say to man in Christ; God's Word is unconditionally theo logical or better theo pragmatic what God wishes to say to man is a deed on his behalf a deed that interprets itself before man and for his sake and only therefore to him and in him What we intend to say about this deed in this book is that it is only credible as love specifically as God's own love the manifestation of which is the glory of GodThis is a uote from this amazing work This book needs to be read slowly and then read again What a powerful thought that the manifestation of God's glory is seen in His loveIt is only in gazing into the eyes of the crucified One that we see what true love really is and how selfish what we usually call love isThis is a book reflecting on God's love and how it it works itself out in the life of the church as a manifestation of His presence There is much here that I have yet to grasp and I need to read this book againand again

    This was the first book of Von Balthasar's that I've read and I absolutely loved it He retains the flair and rhetorical power of his friend Karl Barth without having to sacrifice things like free will nature and a general revelation the way that Barth does His thesis in the book is that in the modern era when both the natural world and the human experience are not seen by the bulk of humanity as overtly theological our only credible appeal to the world comes through love His exploration of love and beauty as the means and the content of divine revelation is powerful and compelling The book is short and fairly accessible especially if one can grab hold of the concepts rather than the figures discussed in the opening two chapters Highly Recommended

    Many truths are laid down which surround and “converge” upon the ultimate leap into love This was the first Balthasar book I read when I read it a few years ago He is pretty well versed in the history of philosophy mostly Western as well as the history of Christian theology and the Bible and despite his learning he manages to never fall into scholarly verbiage I say this less so out of my response to this particular book and much so from his Glory of the Lord volumes He always has a direct purpose even when I don’t know exactly where he is going He also has a level of devotion which has an encouraging effect The encouragement is not the same as my experiences with reading canonized saints’ writings but he trends in that direction


  5. Scott Barber Scott Barber says:

    Excellent Love alone is credible; nothing else can be believed and nothing else ought to be believed p 101 Really a very beautiful book in content and in simple style What is Christian about Christianity? What is the logos of Christianity In this book Balthazar embarks on an effort to answer these uestions discovering his answer far away from the moralities and psychologies of modern theology and instead in the infinite economy of love flowing from the cross This book is worth reading in the same way that everything Balthazar wrote is worth reading


  6. Matthew Dambro Matthew Dambro says:

    It took almost three years to read this little book Sometimes it was line by line; often word by word over and over Cardinal von Balthasar writes densely He had read everything thought about everything written about everything This small volume is his synthesis It stuns It humbles It leads you down unimagined paths One can never think the same way about God and the world after this So many page corners are folded over to reread and rethink I am in awe of his scholarship and his faith The only appropriate response is silence


  7. David Neira David Neira says:

    Nevertheless through revelation we come to realize that our restless heart understands itself only if it has already seen the love offered to it by the divine heart that breaks for us upon the Cross Love does not come to man “from outside” because the human spirit is tied to the senses but because love exists only between persons a fact that every philosophy tends to forget God who is for us the Wholly Other appears only in the place of the other in the “sacrament of our brother”HUvB

    The only reason I bought this book was the title In those days I didn't make full use of inter library loan borrowing as I should have The book is useless A complete waste of money That is why you should check out any book first from the library and later decide if you really want to buy the book The book is a theological mumbo jumbo and since I was a seminary student I would put it in the category of theological christological studies Yea this kind of stuff that you really can't use from day to day if you want to develop your spiritual life One less book on the shelf going as a donation to the library

    This is a book about love; specifically about God's love and particularly the fullest and highest demonstration and revelation of God's love in the event of Jesus of Nazareth I express this ok but inadeuate summary sentence because the title might lead you to expect anything or something other This is an excellent book and von Balthasar is ualified to write it His writing at times may prove dense to the reader depending on one's acuaintance with the landscape and sweep of philosophy and theology but there is plenty for the uninitiated and von Balthasar is a clear and competent writer and author This is a book I will return to again and again because there is in it to be caught it's a very rich book full of light And most of all the Love Alone that is Credible

    This book is a sort of distillation of Von Balthasar's master work on divine aesthetics particularly his first volume Theo Logic For those of us who are not able to devote the time to digest such a large set of works this book is a wonderful substitute However I still had to read it twice to feel I had even the slightest ability to express verbally what I'd taken in This book is a hearty meal – take it in slowly and savor it you'll be back for secondsI'm not euipped to adeuately give a brief summation but I'll tryFrom the first page Von Balthasar sets out to answer the uestion What is specifically Christian about Christianity? and I believe he does so with an artist's touch and a stunning display of eruditionThe title of the book is the answer to the above uestion and the ending point of his argument Simply God is LOVE He is than the definition of the word for He transcends definition His Person this Love that is both Word and Deed appears to us as Wholly Other and calls Himself Love We begin to understand what this word one we use often to describe a variety of feelings and actions finally means in its wholeness through an interaction with this Absolute inexhaustible utterly gratuitous Love that is always already interpretingrevealing itself to us The Father in the great deed of Love sends His Son the Word who continues the self revealing deed of Love – emptying Himself in order to be completely obedient to the Father's WillThis deed enables humanity to be saved to perceive and then respond to the revelation This study is a dive into theological aesthetics because it speaks of perceiving God much as we perceive beauty Once perceived who can but respond with awe and echoing love in which we too empty ourselves and become wholly obedient to His Will which again is Love This is what gives us the truly Christian Hope that ALL things – men and nature – will be redeemed because the same Love which made them ALL out of it's overflow came to save ALL of them out of its continued overflowAll spirituality must begin and end here in a perception and response to the Word Deed of Love which comes from the Father through Jesus and is interpreted to us by the Spirit We cannot begin with the authority of Church leaders teachingpreaching or even Scripture for all of these depend on human agents and are witnesses confirming the Truth of this Love We must first seek a perception of this Love before we begin to try and unpack it In conclusion it was here at the deconstruction of spiritual authority I found myself often frustrated because I felt it so impractical That's it? We just need to gain a vision of Jesus? How? Where's the ten step book for that?But maybe that's the point we are to look around us This God who is Love has overflowed and in that overflow created and redeemed everything we see So maybe the first place to look for Him is everywhere Yes we see the tragedy and the terror but we also see with a new sight a redeemed sight One that says God out of His immense overwhelming love has always already been breaking into this world If we see our fellow man and nature in that light it would not take us long to gain this vision of God
