Unless You Become Like This Child

by Hans Urs Von Balthasar

In one of the last books writ­ten before his death, the great the­olo­gian pro­vides a mov­ing and pro­found med­i­ta­tion on the theme of spir­i­tu­al child­hood. Some­what star­tling­ly, von Balthasar puts forth his con­vic­tion that the cen­tral mys­tery of Chris­tian­i­ty is our trans­for­ma­tion from world-wise, self-suf­fi­cient adults” into abid­ing chil­dren of the Father of Jesus by the grace of their Spirit.
