Format: Paperback
This is almost the only book ever to have been written analysing the Roman Catholic doctrine of the infallibility of the pope. This fact alone speaks volumes. The author, the Swiss Catholic theologian Hans Kung, is at his most incisive in this book where he sets out clearly and accurately the history and rationale of the doctrine of papal infallibility. His knowledge is vast and his comparisons of official Roman Catholicism with the various theological strands of protestantism are accurate and knowledgeable, in contrast to some conservative Catholic apologetic writing which deliberately simplifies and falsifies basic facts about protestant theology. I used to think that Kung was a Lutheran because most of his views are more characteristic of modern Lutheranism, but the fact is that he is a Catholic by churchmanship, though as he was far too radical in his critique of infallibility and the way it is upheld and in turn upholds conservative Catholic ecclesiology, mariology and the condemnation on artifical birth control, is is not surprising that his licence to teach theology at Tubingen was taken away 9 years after this book was first published. It is very important to realise that this occured in 1979 after being interrogated by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the head of the Roman Inquisition (the Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith), the right-hand man of the then new Pope John Paul II.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
As usual, Hans Kung has produced yet another masterpiece, along the lines of his "The Church". Although this work has a very specific aim in mind, namely the discussion of the concept of papal infallibility, by neccessity it touches on several really important ecclesiological themes along the way.
His logic is crystal clear and faultless, without being tedious, and while not light reading, is also not difficult to read.
Highly highly recommended not only for its content, but also for its method.
