                             Karl Rahner
            Theological Giant of the Twentieth Century

Father Harvey D. Egan, S.J.,D.Theol. Boston College

4 CDs (12 Lectures)

Karl Rahner is aptly known as the Father of the Catholic Church in the twentieth century. Now, you can explore Rahner’s wisdom with one of Rahner’s students as your guide.

A Jesuit priest, Rahner was also a philosopher, theologian, commentator on Church documents, devotional writer, preacher, and retreat director. His four thousand written works reveal a powerful vision, and the questions he raised continue to inspire theology today.

In this lecture series, renowned mysticism expert Fr. Harvey Egan, S.J., draws on his personal experience with Karl Rahner, who attended Fr. Egan’s First Mass and directed his doctoral dissertation. With fifty years of reading and teaching Rahner’s thought, Fr. Egan will help you understand Rahner’s many faces. In particular, you will discover his lesser-known roles as an Ignatian theologian and mystic.

This exceptional course will inspire you. Under Fr. Egan’s guidance, you will gain an overview of Rahner’s multifaceted thought, exploring his role as a teacher of the sacraments, Christian life, and prayer. You’ll also encounter Rahner’s more personal side and his love for the Trinity, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and the preached word. Finally, you’ll discover Rahner as a mystagogue of the last things.

As Georgetown President Emeritus Fr. Leo J. O’Donovan writes, “Let Fr. Harvey Egan, a master not only of Fr. Rahner’s spirituality but also of spirituality itself, take you to this center of his life and theology and then on to its wonderful whole wide range.”
