9781441103161: What I Believe

Hans Kung is one of the most celebrated theologians of the present day. His audience, which is strong within his own Roman Catholic Church, is equally solid among Christians of other denominations, among those outside the churches and indeed among those at the frontiers of organised religion.From the start, he has been a rebel, being Swiss and a lover of personal freedom. Many of his books such as Infallible and On Being a Christian have rocked the Papal boat.Now after publishing two magnificent and acclaimed volumes of memoirs, Kung has written a much shorter and more personal book to explain his own beliefs.If one sets aside all scientific knowledge and learning, all formal theological language and the skilful construction of theories, what remains as the core of faith?What do we need for our lives? What is indispensable to us? Kung writes of trust in life, joy in life and suffering in life and in so doing gives us a summa of his own faith - and life.

Review:

Book previewed in Schwäbisches Tagblatt, 15 September, 2009

'What I Believe is not a book to be read quickly, but rather one to ponder over. Some of it is couched in philosophical and theological language, but it is not too difficult to understand and well worth any effort involved.' (thegoodbookstall.org.uk)

'Kung's continuing quest for language to speak meaningfully of God in today's world makes for exciting reading... Methodists seeking to commend their savior to others in the 21st century will find much value here.' (Methodist Recorder)

'The tone is positive and life-affirming but also down to earth... there is something engaging about his [Kung's] commitment to battle for a critical faith and for peace among religions rather than a clash of civilisations.' (Church Of England Newspaper)

'Any book that leaves me asking whether my idea and experience of God is growing bigger or smaller has definitely achieved something.' (Church of Ireland Gazette)

Kung's book deserves to be read by all who are dreaming of a better world, for it is likely to spur us into action to bring it about. (Reform)
