Towards a Theology of God the Father: Hans Urs von Balthasar's Theodramatic Approach

Synopsis

This study gathers & interprets Balthasar's many scattered reflections on the mystery of the God of Jesus Christ-especially those concentrated in his Theological Dramatic Theory-on its way to constructing an approach towards a theology of God's Fatherhood. Several of the most significant current issues in theology are addressed in this study, such as a reinterpretation of divine omnipotence in terms of the Father's all-powerful powerlessness, the question of the possibility of coexistence between infinite freedom & finite freedom, an understanding of the immutability of God that allows for the Father's being affected in some way by finite freedom & an account of the Father's generative act that sees as integral to it a properly paternal modality of receptivity.
