Abstract K. Rahner (1974, 1979) argues for an "anonymous faith." Rahner's theory is that non-Christians and even atheists may respond implicitly to God's saving grace. Rahner's concept of anonymous Christianity can be linked to E. H. Erikson's (1950 [1977], 1968) theory of personal identity. God is seen as the stage on which the developmental drama is acted out. In an honest struggle with the identity crisis, a person responds to God's offer of God's self.
