William M. Thompson of Carroll College in Helena, Montana, studies the realism of Christian hope. Finally, Rahner's ethics of faith is discussed by James F. , of the Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago. Not all of Rahner's theology by any means is presented here. Much more might be said about topics such as God as trinity, Christian spirituality, the nature of pastoral theology, the Church's relations with secular society.

He addresses the person as a whole, both as humanin our everyday experience of ourselves, others, the worldand as Christianfamiliar with and already influenced by the Christian message.

We have shown, through Page 10 philosophical reflection on human experience, that human existence is transcendent existence, that it reaches beyond the finite world, that humanity can be known and loved by what is beyond that world, and can therefore know and love in return.
