Christian Theologies of Salvation
W. T. Dickens
NYU Press

This chapter provides an account of the theology of salvation for both Hans Urs Balthasar and Karl Rahner, eminent Roman Catholic, Jesuit theologians of the twentieth century. Dickens explores both the similarities between these two theologians, such as their disdain for the neoscholastic theological method, and their differences, which primarily exist in their conception of the person, distinctive views of sin, and the scope of the reconciliation of God in Christ.

Keywords:   salvation, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Karl Rahner, neoscholastic
