The Practice of Faith

A Handbook of Contemporary Spirituality

“Karl Lehmann and Albert Raffelt…have compiled this book from the large collection of what [Rahner] called his works of piety. These sixty-five essays using the framework of the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love concentrate on the essentials of the spiritual life…This is a book you will mark up and return to again and again.”

—Contemplative Review

,

“Lehmann and Raffelt knew enough to edit the writing of the master in a manner true both to him and to the real concerns of the contemporary Christian. The Practice of Faith may well be the long-awaited pastoral companion to Rahner’s earlier systematic Foundations of Christian Faith.”

—Spirituality Today

,

“…an ideal collection for refreshing experienced readers of Rahner and for initiating new readers into this irreplaceable humble giant of Catholic theology.”

—Review for Religious

,

“…clear, readable, and readily applicable to the lives of men and women of our age. It is a major boon to have this rich collection available.”
