Written for men and women of all faiths and of none, this volume provides this generation with a profound recalculation of the wisdom of belief in God. 'Passionately researched, reasoned. and almost reckless in its daring to probe ultimate questions for their ultimate consequences. whatever they might be . . . In Kueng the reader has a guide not only of complete integrity. but also of extraordinary breadth and depth of knowledge and great clarity of expression' (Leonard 5m/idler in Commonweal). 'Kung's mastery as a theologian is in his instinctive sense for the heart of the matter and his uncommon sense .. - He is a first-rare theologian and the best exponent of contemporary theological concerns to the wider culture of our day' (David Tracy in The New Republic' 'He belongs clearly in the top rank of those theologians who, like Paul Tillich and Reinhold Niebuhr. have successfully mediated religious faith to the wider society and culture' (Richard P McBrien in The New York Times Book Review).
