I'm curious who translated "Life out of Death" by von Balthasar. I've got a 1985 edition by Fortress Press Philadelphia. The translator, Davis Perkins, writes in "Translator's Note":

"Though quantitatively short, the original text was quite long in terms of torturous Teutonic syntax. [...] I acknowledge the kind assistance of Professor Albert Blackwell in eliminating a host of translation infelicities. Analogous to the book's life-out-death theological dynamic, a less dramatic (but not less pronounced) shift occurred in which (somewhat) lively English emerged out of (seemingly) deathly German prose [...]. Minor editorial alterations were made in the English text to ensure smoother reading and to to accommodate the broader ecumenical audience which deserves to hear clearly the important message von Balthasar has to deliver."

I wonder what exactly has been altered "to accommodate the broader ecumenical audience"?

(I apologize for the long quote but I thought it quite good, especially the first sentence).

Woot! ICE are back! I thought they had died a tragic early death. I wish it were easier to get them over here in blighty though. Still, can't wait.
