“Whenever my efforts to give an explanation for this strange undertaking succeeded, i might always listen, ‘Oh i am getting it. You’re writing Cliffs Notes for Karl Rahner!’ I’m definite the writers of Cliffs Notes may say an analogous factor approximately their paintings as I do approximately mine. it isn't meant to replacement for examining Rahner’s Theological Investigations. to the contrary I clearly desire this reference e-book will open his treasure trove of essay either to the student in addition to to different critical readers of theology. every body accustomed to Rahner’s nice 23-volume Theological Investigations understands the sequence is tough to exploit since it lacks a key. The titles frequently fail to explain the contents of the essays correctly; there's no cumulative index in English; the present indices on the finish of every quantity are tedious and didn't distinguish major discussions of an issue from informal references; and in need of wading via a whole essay there's no approach to comprehend fast even if it includes the cloth one is seeking. This publication makes an attempt to handle those problems.” — From the Introduction.

Example text

The church holds as theologically certain that baptism (and by extension full membership in the visible church) is a necessary means and not just a necessary precept for salvation. But how does this square with the church’s teaching that some of the unbaptized can be saved? e) How can one reconcile the requirement for membership in the visible church for salvation with the fact some unbaptized can actually be saved? It is relatively simple to give a purely formal solution to this problem. Just as there is a baptismus in voto, so there is full membership in the church by desire (voto ecclesiae).

B) This permanent plurality must be respected. c) In cases of conflict the higher dimensions take precedence over the lower. 8. Our nature and dignity are threatened a) from without (material forces and other persons); b) from within (failure to find oneself). c) These internal and external factors determine each other. Guilt and fate intertwine. 9. Every person, precisely as a free subject, either takes control or denies control and responsibility for his/her concrete reality. How much control one actually has, how free one is, is fully known only to God.

Rahner names as precursors of his theory Alexander of Hales, St. Bonaventure, Aquinas, Lessius, Scheeben, Franzelin, and Galtier. c) Difficulties. Some might object that this approach endangers Trent’s view of hte significance of created grace for justification, adoption, etc. Rahner counters that in his theory one cannot even begin to think of created grace apart from uncreated grace. To conceive of created grace as the disposition for uncreated grace in no way deprives the former of its theological attributes.
