Product Description

This is the first of a projected series of three books, each dealing with one of the three great monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It is without doubt one the most serious and learned encounters with Judaism by a non-Jewish scholar and thinker in our time. Hans Kung relates his information through a three part presentation. Kung's work contains a mine of information about Judaism and its discussions of issues facing Judaism and the Jewish people today are clear, sympathetic and insightful.

Publisher's Description

Swiss-German theologian Kung planned this massive synthesis of Christian history and systematic theology as a sequel to his On Being Christian (1976) and as a companion to Judaism (Crossroad, 1992). Ever the Catholic Church's "faithful critic," Kung displays a dazzling breadth of scholarship. Professor of ecumenical theology at the University of Tubingen, he bases his approach on five historical paradigm shifts: Jewish apocalyptic Christianity, early church ecumenism, the Roman system in the medieval papal church, the Reformation, and modern democracy. He notes dominant influences in each, presenting his convictions on the essence of Christianity and moving toward a polycentrism where Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical traditions are not mutually exclusive. Over 30 diagrams and many stimulating "questions for the future" sidebars are included. Not all readers will accept the views of this Vatican II peritus (nor did the Vatican in 1973). But the work is a remarkable achievement for a church always in need of reform and reformers. Recommended for all theology collections>
