As you identify Rahner's paths, it seems like he advocates a transcendental course. This source examines how Rahner's work tends to focus on a transcendental path:

In this article, Crowley strongly maintains that "Rahner's transcendental method could serve as an important tool for entering into interreligious encounter." The article also insinuates that a sort of metaphysical path is proposed by Rahner. I've attached this difficult article as a pdf for you.

Another major path that I feel is exemplified by Rahner deals with dialoguing with God. His work seems to suggest the "the possibility and limits of interreligious dialogue" (http://www.ewtn.com/library/THEOLOGY/FR91302.HTM).

Research also points out, "For Rahner simultaneously takes two paths: a focus on the full range of doctrine and on only the essentials" (http://www.ewtn.com/library/THEOLOGY/FR91302.HTM).
