Barth and Rahner in Dialogue

Toward an Ecumenical Understanding of Sin and Evil

Series:

Ronald Highfield

This illuminating study of the doctrine of sin compares the thought of two of the most influential thinkers of our time, the Reformed theologian, Karl Barth (1886-1968), and the Roman Catholic theologian, Karl Rahner (1904-1984). The author succeeds in balancing scientific rigor with ecumenical sensitivity in his effort to discover areas of real convergence between Barth and Rahner. Uncovering hitherto hidden congruity, Dr. Highfield proposes a way for Roman Catholics and Protestants to recognize their fundamental agreement on the doctrine of sin.
