"GIVE ME, O GOD OF MY PRAYER, THE GRACE TO CONTINUE WAITING FOR YOU IN PRAYER" Second printing in English of Karl Rahner's series of ten prayerful dialogues with God. Encounters is a good example of the mysticism of the earlier, pre-conciliar Rahner: "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 into English by James M. Demske, S. J. with his brief Foreword. Second printing of September, 1960, first printed May, 1960. Approbations. A lovely copy.
