More About Hans Kung

Hans Kung Hans Küng, (born March 19, 1928, Sursee, Switz.), Swiss Roman Catholic theologian whose controversial liberal views led to his censorship by the Vatican in 1979.

Küng studied at Gregorian University in Rome and obtained a doctorate in theology from the Catholic Institute at the Sorbonne in 1957. He was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1954, and he taught at the University of Münster in West Germany (1959–60) and at the University of Tübingen (1960–96), where he also directed the Institute for Ecumenical Research from 1963. In 1962 he was named by Pope John XXIII a peritus (theological consultant) for the second Vatican Council.

Küng’s prolific writings questioned the formulation of such traditional church doctrine as papal infallibility, the divinity of Christ, and teachings about the Virgin Mary. In 1979 a Vatican censure that banned his teaching as a Catholic theologian provoked international controversy, and in 1980 a settlement was reached at Tübingen that allowed him to teach under secular rather than Catholic auspices. His more recent research has focused on interreligious cooperation and the creation of a global ethic. His publications include Rechtfertigung: Die Lehre Karl Barths und eine Katholische Besinnung (1957; Justification: The Doctrine of Karl Barth and a Catholic Reflection), Konzil und Wiedervereinigung (1960; The Council, Reform, and Reunion), Die Kirche (1967; The Church), Unfehlbar? (1970; Infallible?), Christ sein (1974; On Being a Christian), Existiert Gott? (1978; Does God Exist?), and Ewiges Leben? (1982; Eternal Life?).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of the most critical and challenging issues of our time....  Nov 18, 2008
Global Responsibility: In Search of a New World Ethic
We often blame religions for wars and dissent in the world. In this book, Hans Kung is recognizing both the new opportunities and potential dangers in this time of geopolitical change. Kung is a renowned expert on world-religions and their impact on society. His knowledge of the Abrahamic faith - Christianity, Judaism and Islam - is probably one of the most comprehensive. In this book, he calls for a minimum of shared ethical principles on which we should all agree, bringing believers and non-believers closer together.
With a billion Catholics in the world, a billion Protestants and a billion Muslims - not to speak of several million Jews - half of the planet claims to belong to one of these religions. Kung is inviting these representatives of the great religions to encourage reconciliation and peace. The world faiths must provide foundations for ethical values and norms which could be universally binding.
This book was published in the early nineties but its problematic remains very actual and current at a time when the United Nations are working on bringing religious leaders into their midst, to fight corruption and self-serving politics.
Our global responsibility is clear: inter-religious dialogue is absolutely necessary since there is no possible survival without a common world ethic.
Beyond democracy, we need to rediscover the common creteria for truth and to promote reconciliation worldwide.
This scholarly contribution will stimulate the social, business and political leaders of the world to accept the challenge of dialogue and peace.
