"He descended into hell." Hans Urs von Balthasar, one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth-century, placed this affirmation of the Nicene Creed at the heart of his reflection on the world-altering events of Holy Week, asserting that this identification of God with the human experience is at the 'absolute center' of the Christian faith.^In the first comprehensive treatment of von Balthasar's theology of Holy Saturday, Alyssa Pitstick draws on the multiple yet unified resources of authoritative Catholic thinking on Christ's descent to challenge von Balthasar's influential conclusions. Light in Darkness will spur debate across the theological spectrum, as scholars and students explore the implications of this careful, contrarian book.
-Publisher

"Alyssa Lyra Pitstick's Light in Darkness - the first comprehensive treatment of Balthasar's theology of Holy Saturday - draws on the multiple yet unified resources of authoritative Catholic teaching on Christ's descent to challenge Balthasar's conclusions. Pitstick conducts a thorough investigation of Balthasar's position that Christ suffered in his descent into hell and asks whether that is compatible with traditional teaching about Christ." "Light in Darkness is a thorough argument for the existence and authority of a traditional Catholic doctrine of Christ's descent as manifested in creeds, statements of popes and councils, Scripture, and art from Eastern and Western traditions. Pitstick's carefully argued, contrarian work is sure to spur debate across the theological spectrum."--BOOK JACKET.
