Chris' Top Ten

One of my readers wanted to know who the other members of my "Top Ten Catholic Theologians of the 20th Century" are (I mentioned Cardinal Ratzinger as one of them below).

In no particular order...

1. Henri de Lubac
2. Hans Urs von Balthasar
3. Karol Wojtyla (John Paul II)
4. Karl Rahner (before he went cookoo)
5. Yves Congar

Actually, I'm going to stop there... there are several other eminent theologians I might mention, but none of them have quite the stature that these do. Again, IMHO.

Also, it's very possible that I've inadvertently forgotten someone who is a must for such a list. If I have, by all means, email me or make a comment.
