'This is a gem of a collection with seventeen scholarly essays on a wide variety of issues introducing a reliable road map to the corpus of von Balthasar and taking us on guided tours of select streets in Balthasar's Byzantine world ... it covers a wide range of topics which is excellent for teaching and introductory purposes ... the range of topics and the high standard of all essays make this a very good buy' Review of Religion and Theology '... a great book for the enthusiast ...' Ministry Today 'At the heart of the book are three excellent essays on the parts of the trilogy by Oliver Davies, Ben Quash and Aidan Nichols. Each could not but encourage a reader daunted by the scale of the mountain range ahead, with a map, a compass and enough description to suggest the exhilaration of the climb and the rewards of perseverance through its length.' Times Literary Supplement '... an admirably short collection of mostly concise pieces'. Times Literary Supplement '... the editors fulfill their promise of a rich feast. ... it is a great way in to the library of his works, and can hardly be bettered as an introduction.' Themelios
