"The publication of this excellent translation of Erich Przywaras difficult and contentious book is an important event. Analogia Entis poses an inescapable problem for theologians, that of how we must understand the relationship of Gods being to human beings in order for us to be able to talk about God. Przywara was a notable influence on some of the greatest Protestant and Catholic theologians of the twentieth century. We need to learn from him if we are to understand them."
-- University of Nottingham
"At last English readers have available a translation of one of the great masterworks of twentieth-century theology and philosophy, giving them a much better sense of the course of both Catholic and Protestant thought since the inter-war period. John Betz and David Bentley Hart have done a remarkable job of rendering Przywaras Analogia Entis into highly readable English without losing any of the sense or nuances of the German original."
-- Duke Divinity School
"Arguably the most brilliant and simultaneously most enigmatic Catholic intellectual of the earlier part of the twentieth century, Erich Przywara argued eye to eye with Edmund Husserl, Max Scheler, and Martin Heidegger, challenged Karl Barth, and through his famous lectures inspired a host of influential Catholic thinkers. . . . Finally, his magnum opus, Analogia Entis, is available in lucid English prose -- an intellectual event of the first order. We are deeply indebted to John Betz and David Bentley Hart for this splendid labor of love."
-- University of Notre Dame
"Be prepared to let a predilection for poetry spice austere argument, to retrieve the pristine dynamic of analogy as Aquinas invariably used it to render philosophy as a handmaid of faith."
"The translators are to be congratulated for having resurrected this treasure of a book so well and for giving it a new life in English at the junction of philosophy and theology we have come to. One can only hope that it will be read and studied as widely as it deserves."
