World Religions and the Finality of Christ: A Critique of Hans Küng's On Being a Christian

Knitter, Paul

Küng's case for the relevance of Christianity and his program for dialogue with other religions include claims for the exclusive uniqueness and normativity of Christ. This article raises the following questions: 1) Are such claims necessary for personal commitment to Christ and for fidelity to the New Testament witness? 2) Do they allow for genuine dialogue with other religions? 3) Are they even possible in the light of prevalent norms for theological and historical-critical methodology?
