Rob, you probably know Rahner better than I do, but I’m not sure Rahner would disagree with anything in that paragraph (or the document) you cite. Could you spell it out?

When I took a course on Rahner with the eminent Lutheran theologian Robert Jenson, I got the impression that “Anonymous Christianity” was his thesis on how non-Christians might be saved and participate in same aspect of true religion, but that he never denied that they were lacking important aspects of the truth or that they’d be better off as Christians. If I remember correctly, Jenson noted that the more extreme forms came from his followers, that there’s a world of difference between Rahner and Rahnerians . . .

Can you help us out?
