Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

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.?Anna Donnelly, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, N.Y.

Format: Paperback
On the topic of Judaism, this is the first book of any great substance that I have read, so I have nothing with which to compare it. However, Kung offers in this book a comprehensive look at Judaism's incredible past and its multi-dimensional present -- specifically addressing its relationship to Christianity, and the problems and opportunities for Judaism in the post-modern world. Critical yet sympathetic, Kung writes as a thoroughly Christian theologian, yet as one who is committed to partnership and dialogue. Highly recommended for any serious reader who wants a glimpse into the vast treasures of the Jewish faith.

Format: Paperback
This is the kind of book that open our minds to other ways of behavior and let us undertand the way of thinking of other religions. It is not a matter the religion you have, you can find answers to many questions from your own perspertive with independece of wath you belive. I'm cristhian, but it let me undertand the Jews.

Hans Kung is a historian that is skilled in separating fact from fiction or theology. His volume on Christianity and Islam are some of the best books I have read, but his book on Judaism comes with a distinctive Christian perspective. It is still very much worth reading.
