The Eschatological Judgment of Christ
The Hope of Universal Salvation and the Fear of Eternal Perdition in the Theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Karlson offers a welcome corrective to the many one-sided treatments of Balthasar's eschatology. His extensive knowledge of Balthasar's corpus reveals a thinker for whom sin and damnation remain essential parts of the Christian drama. Future commentators on Balthasar will ignore this book at their own peril."
--Patrick X. Gardner, Valparaiso University
"Karlson has produced a wonderful and readable introduction to a very complicated and important discussion within Catholic theology."
--Thomas L. Humphries Jr., Associate Professor of Philosophy, Theology, and Religion, Saint Leo University; author of Ascetic Pneumatology from John Cassian to Gregory the Great
