This study gathers and interprets Balthasars many scattered reflections on the mystery of the God of Jesus Christ - especially those concentrated in his Theological Dramatic Theory - on its way to constructing an approach towards a theology of Gods Fatherhood. Several of the most significant current issues in theology are addressed in this study, such as a reinterpretation of divine omnipotence in terms of the Fathers all-powerful powerlessness, the question of the possibility of coexistence between infinite freedom and finite freedom, an understanding of the immutability of God that allows for the Fathers being affected in some way by finite freedom, and an account of the Fathers generative act that sees as integral to it a properly paternal modality of receptivity.
