The T&T Clark Companion to Henri de Lubac introduces the life and writings of one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century. A highly controversial figure throughout the 1940s and 50s, Henri de Lubac (1896 - 1991) played a prominent role during the Second Vatican Council and was appointed cardinal by Pope John Paul II in 1983. His work, which covers an impressive range of theological, philosophical and historical inquiries, has left an indelible mark on modern Christian thought. This volume, including contributions from leading Catholic, Protestant and Anglican scholars of de Lubac's work, introduces readers to the key features of his theology. By placing de Lubac's writings in both their immediate context and in conversation with contemporary theological debates, these essays shed light on the theological ingenuity and continuing relevance of this important thinker.

Newcomers to the study of Henri de Lubac will be able to pass for experts after reading this excellent collection of essays, and experts will find their understanding enriched by fresh and challenging insights. This book succeeds in the two ways that a companion volume should: it introduces, and it elevates. While drawing in the uninitiated, it also advances the scholarly conversation.
De Lubac once remarked that the ressourcement (return to the sources) approach to theology is not intended to repristinate the past. Instead, it is aimed at gaining a better understanding of the past in order to more fully see the path forward in the present. The T&T Clark Companion to Henri de Lubac does just that, not only for Catholicism, but for the entire Christian church.
In 500 densely packed pages, the twenty contributors to this excellent volume deliver a fine tribute to, explanation of, and commentary on the outstanding theological contribution of someone who is often and rightly associated with Congar, Balthasar, Danielou, and other ressourcement theologians in the first half of the twentieth century, but whose own work is unique and eminently deserving of attention.
.this collection confirms Henri de Lubac's great importance as a Catholic theologian, with essays that invite and will reward much re-reading and debate.
