“I believe because I pray.”
– Karl Rahner, S.J. (1904–1984)

Karl Rahner was one of the most influential theologians of our time. He was an important contributor to the Second Vatican Council, a Jesuit priest, a prolific author, a formidable professor of theology, and a leading voice of ecumenical dialogue. But until now, few have experienced his profound and edifying spirituality.

Now, Radical Grace: A Retreat with Karl Rahner introduces you to the remarkable spirituality behind his theology. Presented by celebrated spirituality expert Fr. Anthony Ciorra, these accessible conferences shed new light on his prayerful and grace-filled writings. As you will come to realize, Rahner’s profound experience of prayer animated and inspired his theology. And through these retreat conferences, you too will understand his passion for articulating the human experience of God.

In these conferences, you will consider Rahner’s writings and theological contributions with an eye towards their deep spirituality. You will explore his radical theology of grace, which holds that every human is a mystic at heart. Then, you will reflect on his model of everyday mysticism, learning to practice daily holiness and the virtue of patience. You will also explore his Christology, spiritual influences, and methods for dealing with dark nights of the soul.

Rahner was indeed an important twentieth-century theologian, but only because he was more fundamentally a modern spiritual master. Grow closer to God with Rahner as your spiritual guide.

Outstanding content and delivery. I consider all study guides very well done. I have shared this retreat with another religious who was delighted with it. It is the best I heard. Review by Sister Esther (Posted on 7/4/2018)
