Anyone who has ever thought that Rahner's theology is dated or does not have anything useful to say to the world outside of Europe should read this book from cover to cover. Essays after essays convincingly show how Rahner is relevant to the 'Pacific Rim'-the world bathed by the Pacific Ocean-and to the burning religious issues of today: religious pluralism, inculturation, interrreligious dialogue, popular religion, etc. Rahner beyond Rahner is required reading for every course on the thought of this theological giant of the twentieth century. -- Peter Phan, Ignacio Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University Inspired by the groundbreaking work of Karl Rahner, these essays offer fascinating insights into the theological and, indeed, spiritual challenges represented by cultural and religious pluralism in the world today. In so doing, this collection also deepens our appreciation of the amazing fecundity of Rahner's thought as a resource whose influence will be felt for generations to come. -- Roberto Goizueta, Professor of Theology, Boston College An excellent resource for a graduate course on Rahner's theology. Theological Studies The critical perspectives presented in this volume point to the direction in which Catholic studies in general and Rahner studies in particular have been moving in the past decade. It is encounter in action imbued with the spirit of the great theologian delighting in the continuing creative and courageous engagement with his thought and the questions of the day. -- Susan Abraham, Assistant Professor of Theology, St. Bonaventure University, NY
