College Theology Society Book of the Year. In this remarkable study, the first of its kind in any language, Christopher Steck uncovers the ethical dimension of von Balthasar's thought, showing its relation to other key issues in his works, and to key figures such as Ignatius Loyola, Karl Barth, and especially Karl Rahner. Steck shows both the importance of ethics in von Balthasar's thinking and how it exposes limitations of current ethical reflection. This clear, authoritative introduction is indispensable for von Balthasar scholars and students of contemporary Catholic theology, as well as all interested in major trends about religious ethics.

Mastering Theology provides an introduction to the main themes in Christian theology. It is aimed at undergraduates and those training for the ministry at theological colleges of all denominations throughout the English speaking world. Assuming no previous knowledge, this book takes a simplified look at basic issues in the Christian faith. It introduces the Hebrew scriptures and the New Testament and surveys the development of Christianity from its infancy right through to major themes in ethics and modern theology.
`My theme is the dance: the dance of life; the dance of the cosmos, of the natural world and the tiniest particles of matter; the dance of music and paint and words; the dance of those cruel times which feels like dancing in the dark; the dance of relationships, of forgiveness, friendship and love; the dance of faith; and finally, that hidden dance that some call heaven.' Few writers have explored the borderland between faith and contemporary living more eloquently and engagingly in recent years than Michael Mayne. In Learning to Dance he creates a magical weave of poetry, science and spirituality, touching on the longings, doubts and hopes of all of us. 'An enchanted and enchanting book. Michael Mayne has brought us through a dance of treasures of nature and a fascinating store of literature, from the mystery of the galaxies to the intricacies of the snowflake.' From the Foreword by Dame Cecily Saunders
