Christology from Within

Spirituality and the Incarnation in Hans Urs von Balthasar

Mark A. McIntosh

“Mark McIntosh has succeeded in offering the reader a synthetic and constructive reading of von Balthasar. This will be a contribution not only to Balthasarian studies but to Christology as well. With respect to the former, McIntosh has not left many stones unturned in von Balthasar’s Christology. The fruits of this study await engagement with other contemporary Christologies and their methodological choices. Certainly this book will establish a retrieval of the humanity of Christ from the perspective of so-called high Christology, but it will also discover that humanity as one that plumbs the depths of our own humanity and calls it into a unitive imitation of the freedom and self-givingness of Christ.” — The Thomist

“This is an engaging and delightfully accessible account of von Balthasar’s christology. McIntosh makes a compelling case for looking at von Balthasar’s theology in terms of his utilization of traditions in Christian spirituality.” — Journal of Religion

McIntosh’s examination of the unique christo-logical thought of twentieth-century theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar provides a valuable example of how christology and spirituality can come together to offer a more humanistic idea of Christ.
