On being a Christian by Hans Kng( Book )

186 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in 13 languages and held by 3,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can Christian faith continue to meet the challenges of today's world? Is the Christian message an adequate one for 20th-century men and women? In this brilliant study the controversy all Catholic theologian Hans Küng answers with a resounding "yes." Assessing the impact of other world religions, humanism, science, technology, and political revolution; and sifting through the theological controversies within the Christian community itself, Küng affirms the vitality and uniqueness of Christianity by tracing it back to its roots -- the reality of the historical Christ. For Küng's exhaustive scholarship is combined with a passionate belief in Jesus Christ as the center of existence. Beyond its historical and theological dimensions, however, On Being a Christian is a thorough re-examination of what it means to be a Christian today: the role of Christian ethics in a social and political context, the relationship between Christians and Jews, the organization of the community of believers, and practical suggestions for dealing with personal crises of faith. Written for both the scholar and the educated laity, this monumental work is destined to become a landmark of modern Christian thought. - Jacket flap
Does God exist? : an answer for today by Hans Kng( Book )

121 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does God exist? The question implies another: Who is God? This book is meant to give an answer to both questions and to give reasons for this answer. Does God exist? Yes or no? Many are at a loss between belief and unbelief; they are undecided, skeptical. They are doubtful about their belief, but they are also doubtful about their doubting. There are still others who are proud of their doubting. Yet there remains a longing for certainty. Certainty? Whether Christians or Jews, believers in God or atheists, the discussion today runs right across old denominations and new ideologies - but the longing for certainty is unquenched. Does God exist? We are putting all our cards on the table here. The answer will be "Yes, God exists," As human beings in the twentieth century, we certainly can reasonably believe in God - even more so in the Christian God - and perhaps even more easily today than a few decades or centuries ago. For, after so many crises, it is surprising how much has been clarified and how many difficulties in regard to belief in God have melted into the Light that no darkness has overcome

Christianity and the world religions : paths of dialogue with Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism by Hans Kng( Book )

74 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 2,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a significant connection between ecumenism and world peace. Anyone who feels a sense of obligation toward the world community, who takes seriously the fragility of all human arrangements, who has glimpsed the possibilities of technical and human error, must know what is at stake here. He must know that the threat to peace and the need to regulate it have long since burst through the dimensions of the specific, reginoal conflict, and have become global political problems on which the survival of us all depends. The most fanatical, the cruelest political struggles are those that have been colored, inspired, and legitimized by religion. To say this is not to reduce all political conflicts to religious ones, but to take seriously the fact that religions share in the responsibility for bringing peace to our torn and warring world

Women in Christianity by Hans Kng( Book )

39 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two years Hans Kung guided a research project on women and Christianity, funded by the Volkswagen Foundation. For most of the religions of the world, women are a problem. From time immemorial they have been subordinate to men: second class in the family, in politics and in business with limited rights and even limited participation in worship. In Christianity, equal rights for women have been a scandalously neglected issue. Through an examination of the history of women in Christianity Kung reveals the scandals of the past." "Roman Catholic Canon Law is androcentric and male-dominated. The role of women in the Church has often been positive throughout its history, but the prohibition of women servers at Mass and the ordination of women to the diaconate and the priesthood are characteristics of a Church that takes a consistently 'negative' attitude towards contraception, abortion and divorce." "From his position of intellectual freedom - as President of the Independent Global Ethic Foundation - Kung has been free to analyse the mistakes of the past and to sketch out a new theology of women in the Church. This is not a stridently feminist theology but rather one that sees the role of women as being vital for the development of the Church as an institution and for the preaching of the Christian Gospel."--Jacket
A global ethic for global politics and economics by Hans Kng( Book )

43 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can the new world order of the twenty-first century avoid the horrors of the twentieth? Will nations form a real community or continue to aggressively pursue their own interests? Will the Machiavellian approaches of the past prevail over idealism and a more humanitarian politics? What role can religion play in a world increasingly dominated by transnational corporations? Kung tackles these and many other questions with the insight and moral authority that comes from a life-time's devotion to the search for justice and human dignity. Arguing against both an amoral realpolitik and an immoral resurgence of laissez-faire economics, Kung defines a comprehensive ethic - founded on the bedrock of mutual respect and humane treatment of all beings - that would encompass the ecological, legal, technological, and social patterns that are reshaping civilization. If we are going to have a global economy, a global technology, a global media, Kung argues, we must also have a global ethic to which all nations, and peoples of the most varied backgrounds and beliefs, can commit themselves. "The world," he says, "is not going to be held together by the Internet."
