A compelling look at the extraordinary life of one of the most important theologians of our time. Offering a dramatic narrative of the first four decades of his spiritual journey, Kung begins with his youth in Switzerland, describes his elite education at the papal Collegium Germanicum, offers a behind-the-scenes account of Vatican II, and details his conflicts with the church over his opposition to papal infallibility. 544 pages, hardcover from Eerdmans.
Hans Kung depicts the first forty years of the author's life and his struggle for a Christianity characterized not by the domination of an official church but by Jesus. U.S. and Canada rights only; Continuum elsewhere.
