Rudolph Otto, one of the most influential and respected religious thinkers of his time, offers up this philosophical text. In The Idea of the Holy, Otto aims to describe the incomprehensible qualities of God in his transcendence, taking an almost non-rational approach to the divine. Philosophers Barth, Heidegger, Rohr, and Gadamer have all acknowledged Otto as a philosophical authority and many others have gleaned ideas from his works. This incredibly deep text calls readers to think differently about faith and to reevaluate God in his existence. Luke Getz CCEL Staff Writer
