This book is tough going, particularly if you don't have at least a reasonable grounding in philosophy, particularly German philosophy, but also existentialism. On the other hand, Rahner goes slowly and explains everything, so if you don't get a point the first time, it has other opportunities to sink in. I wouldn't recommend it for the casual reader (like me), but perhaps those very interested in Catholic theology would find it worthwhile to read. ( )
