Does God Exist? An Answer for Today

  • Author: Hans Küng
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 840

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The existence of God has been one of the greatest subjects of human speculation since history began, but not until modern times has the reality of God been so strongly called into doubt. In this monumental study, Hans Küng, one of the most controversial theologians in the world today, traces the rise of modern atheism in the works of such thinkers as Descartes, Pascal, Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. He then demonstrates—brilliantly and in terms that make sense to us today—why a “yes” to God remains a more reasonable and responsible belief than its alternative, nihilism.

Passionate, almost reckless in its daring . . . Küng’s best and most helpful book to date.

Eternal Life? Life after Death as a Medical, Philosophical, and Theological Problem

  • Author: Hans Küng
  • Translator: Edward Quinn
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 288

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

We are in the midst of a sociological crisis of orientation on the grand scale. New problems and needs have become insistent, new fears and longings have come to light. Religion is attracting greater attention—Christianity, as well as Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. In the last century, science did much to destroy belief in immortality and made stupendous efforts to prolong life. However, medicine today has broken through the taboos in regard to death and given new life to the question of death and survival. But has medicine—or perhaps parapsychology—proved that there is life after death?

Global Responsibility: In Search of a New World Ethic

  • Author: Hans Küng
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 178

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this timely and urgent work, Hans Küng reminds us of the catastrophes facing modern society. That every minute, the nations of the world spend 1.8 million dollars on military armaments; every hour, 1,500 children die of hunger-related causes; and every year, an area of tropical forest three-quarters the size of Korea is destroyed. In Global Responsibility, Küng offers important new approaches to these and many more issues, concluding that there can be no peace among nations without dialogue between the religions, and no ongoing human society without a global ethic.

Hans Küng has chosen to discuss what is probably the most critical and challenging issue in the debate about the future of human habitation of this globe. I very much hope that this scholarly contribution will help to stimulate a more determined search for a shared belief in the beauty and value of this planet Earth as our common and unique home in the vastness of the universe.

About Hans Küng

Hans Küng is a Swiss Catholic priest and professor emeritus of ecumenical theology at the University of Tübingen. Küng was a principal architect of the theological agenda of the Second Vatican Council, but is a controversial figure in Catholic theology today for his acceptance of euthanasia and his rejection of papal infallibility. Since 1979, he has not been permitted to teach as a Roman Catholic theologian, but he has retained his priestly faculties and continued to teach ecumenical theology until his retirement in 1996. He is president of the Foundation for a Global Ethic and author of many works, including Signposts for the Future: Contemporary Issues facing the Church, My Struggle for Freedom: Memoirs, and Great Christian Thinkers.
