Elucidations provides readers with short, clear, insightful reflections on widely disputed topics of Christian belief and life. Written by one of the great theologians and spiritual writers of the twentieth century, Hans Urs von Balthasar, this work feeds both the mind and heart, exploring the substance of Christian life, experience, and faith.

Among the topics that von Balthasar addresses are the mystery of God, the role of the saints and the Marian principle, the nature of Tradition and Authority, the Pope, the Priesthood, the nature of religious life, unity among believers, the subject of why remain in the Church, and more. Each of the twenty-five chapters focuses on a particular topic, and together they bear witness to an underlying comprehensive vision on essential spiritual questions for modern believers.

Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-88) was a Swiss theologian, and widely considered to be one of the most important Catholic theologians and spiritual writers of the twentieth century. Incredibly prolific and diverse, he wrote over one hundred books, including Prayer, Heart of the World, Mysterium Paschale, Love Alone is Credible, and his major 7-volume work of theological aesthetics, Glory of the Lord.
