Patrick Burke examines the structure of dialectical analogy as it appears in each of the major themes of Rahner's theology-as an indispensable key to the correct interpretation of his thought. He also exposes a tension within the system that needs to be addressed if the complex balance of Rahner's vision is to be fully understood
