Click here to download the recordings of Age Journalist Martin Flanagan’s recent dialogue with visiting US priest Fr Jim Bacik. The topic was “Is there really a God? Searching for mystery in a culture of doubt”.
It is worth listening to all three files. There is a really interesting bit right at the very end of the third file (the last question asked) where Fr Bacik talks about the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar as a necessary corrective to the theology of Karl Rahner, a contrast which he characterises as the kataphatic as opposed to the apophatic. I will post some more sometime on the relative merits of these two approaches to theology for the life of the Church today.
