Cihak explores Balthasar's short work on the theology of anxiety, and takes up the famous Swiss theologian's invitation to continue the inquiry. He does this well, representing the thought of great figures from literature, philosophy and theology. This is a first class work; its contribution to Christian thought and understanding is considerable. By skillfully clarifying the subject matter of von Balthasar's Der Christ und die Angst, John Cihak has advanced our understanding of the nature of anxiety and its integration into the life of man.

Anxiety is a serious and very real problem today. What is it? Where does it come from? Is it something original to human nature? Did Jesus Christ say or do anything about it? Does the Christian Faith have a contribution to make toward understanding and alleviating anxiety? These and other similar questions are taken up in this book.Balthasar and Anxiety is a theological study of the problem of anxiety through the lens of Hans Urs von Balthasar (1910-1988), arguably one of the greatest and most prolific Catholic theologians of the 20th Century. His treatment of anxiety, borne from his friendship with the Viennese psychiatrist Rudolf Allers and with the German psychiatrist Albert Gorres, is illuminating and provocative. But as he himself admitted, his initial thoughts required further development. This study is a systematic presentation, analysis and development of Balthasar's original theology of anxiety found in his only work on the subject, Der Christ und die Angst. One of the great qualities of the Swiss theologian's approach to theology is the ability to engage diverse currents of thought, so this study is structured in dialogue with contemporary psychiatry and with some of the great thinkers on the problem of anxiety: Soren Kierkegaard, Sigmund Freud, George Bernanos, St. Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther and St. Ignatius of Loyola. Cihak's study, sufficiently rigorous yet accessible to the non-specialist, orchestrates these thinkers around the phenomenon of anxiety, anxiety's origins, its redemption by Jesus Christ and its transformation in the Christian life from initial believers to the great mystics and saints. The entire study is framed by the two Gardens wherein transpire the most significant events concerning anxiety for Balthasar: the Garden of Eden and the Garden of Gethsemane.

Wow! A doctoral thesis that is insightful in comparing the two gardens of the book of Genesis and the New Testament of the passion of Jesus. Philosophy - theology and spirituality all rolled into one. Excellent reading and a book scholastics would enjoy.

"Dr Cihak has made an important and timely contribution to the study of the phenomenon of anxiety in the modern age. Cihak explores Balthasar's short work on the theology of anxiety, Der Christ und die Angst, and takes up the famous Swiss theologian's invitation to continue the inquiry. He does this well, representing the thought of great figures from literature, philosophy and theology, such as Aquinas, Luther, Kierkegaard, Bernanos and Freud. This is a first class work, its contribution to Christian thought and understanding is considerable."

"John Cihak's study on the theme of anxiety is a valuable addition to Balthasar scholarship. Balthasar's own engagement with psychiatry was perhaps unique among modern theologians. Drawing on this, and especially on Balthasar's intensely Christocentric and Trinitarian theology, Dr Cihak argues that the solution to the problem of anxiety at the deepest level must be sought beyond the domain of psychiatry. What emerges is a work of fundamental theology that, in the spirit of Balthasar, beautifully and convincingly demonstrates the credibility of the Christian witness in our age of anxiety."

-Aaron Kheriaty, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, University of California, Irvine, USA

"By skillfully clarifying the subject matter of von Balthasar's Der Christ und die Angst, John Cihak has advanced our understanding of the nature of anxiety and its integration into the life of man. It is rare that a scholarly work such as this addresses effectively both the theoretical and pastoral realms, evoking a rich series of reflections upon the depths of the human psyche and its most profound realization in the Christian life. In this and many other ways, Cihak's work displays the best that the Catholic intellectual tradition has to offer."
