"GIVE ME, O GOD OF MY PRAYER, THE GRACE TO CONTINUE WAITING FOR YOU IN PRAYER" Early British printing of Karl Rahner's series of ten prayerful dialogues with God. Encounters is an example of Rahner's mysticism in the years before the Second Vatican Council: "Some readers believe his spirit is best appreciated in his prayers and works on spirituality, particularly Ignatian spirituality" (Robert Royal, A Deeper Vision). The book went through six editions in the original German and was translated into Italian, French, and Spanish before it appeared in English. Translated by James M. Demske, S. J. with his brief Foreword. Second printing of September, 1960, first printed May, 1960. Approbations. A lovely copy.
