The final volume of Theo-Logic focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit. Though Balthasar devotes some thought to the relations within the Trinity and to the problem of the filioque, he spends the better part of the volume presenting his ideas of the objective and subjective aspects of the Spirit’s person and work.
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.
- Focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit
- Discerns the unity of the trinitarian work of salvation in the Church and in the cosmos
Praise for the Print Edition
Balthasar’s most important works, at least in his own eyes, are not his writings but his foundations.
. . . 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)
