Theo-Logic is the third and crowning part of the great trilogy of the masterwork of theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, following his first two parts, The Glory of the Lord and Theo-Drama. This third part of the trilogy focuses on theological “logic” and what role it plays in the event of God’s self-revelation through the Incarnation of the Logos and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The Truth of the World searches to uncover the structures that characterize the truth of finite being, while keeping in mind that this truth cannot be explained outside of its circumincessive relation to the other transcendentals. This volume investigates truth as nature, freedom, mystery, and participation.

With the Logos edition the reader has an abundance of resources that offer applicable and insightful material for their study. You can easily search the subject of theological “logic” to access an assortment of useful resources and perspectives from a variety of pastors and theologians.

Key Features

  • Pursues a predominantly philosophical method
  • Reflects on the creaturely structure of unity
  • Examines the structures that characterize the truth of finite being

Praise for the Print Edition

Balthasar’s most important works, at least in his own eyes, are not his writings but his foundations.

—Peter Henrici

. . . meeting Balthasar was for me the beginning of a lifelong friendship I can only be thankful for. Never again have I found anyone with such a comprehensive theological and humanistic education as Balthasar . . . and I cannot even begin to say how much I owe to my encounter with him.

—Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI)
