Rahner describes this book as being written for the educated reader who is not afraid to wrestle with an idea and also hopes that his readers will not find it too primitive or too advanced. Rather than an index, a detailed table of contents of 10 pages is provided at the back indicating that the book is to be used as a continuum and not so much as a scholarly reference work. Previous owner's book plate on the first (half-title) page. The book is otherwise very clean and tight showing only some quite mild shelf wear to the fore corners of the covers and the spine head. .
