9780826417640: Future of Christology

In a strongly worded "notification," in February of 2005, the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith denounced Jesuit Roger Haight's award-winning, best-selling book Jesus Symbol of God as containing "grave doctrinal errors." Like a number of theologians before him—Hans Küng, Charles Curran, Anthony de Mello, Tissa Balasuriya, and Jacques Dupuis—Haight has been banned from teaching as a Catholic theologian. In its overall criticism of the book, the Congregation, still under the direction of the then Cardinal Ratzinger, charged that Haight "subordinates the contents of the faith to their plausibility and intelligibility in post-modern culture." For his part, Haight says: "I look at American Catholicism with a population more and more educated in the faith. Many college and university students are used to religious pluralism, and are asking how they can square it with the Catholic faith. I try to put critical words to their experience and keep their experience in touch with the tradition. My fear is that educated Catholics will walk out if there isn't space for an open attitude to other religions." The Future of Christology covers much the same ground as Jesus Symbol of God, though in a much more accessible and compact format. The earlier book was written as a textbook; this one, with a wider audience in mind. In the final chapter, Haight responds to the numerous reviews Jesus Symbol of God received, both pro and con.

Review:


(Theological Best Books- mentioning (Fall/ Winter 2005))

3rd place for a Theology title



"In , Roger Haight provides a collection of essays that address salient themes from his monograph (JSG) (Orbis, 1999). Intended for an audience that does not necessarily include professional theologians, the book represents a recapitulation of the ideas and a response to the critiques raised by his provocative monograph. This apologetic undercurrent notwithstanding, members of the Catholic community as well as college and university students seeking dialogue with contemporary cultural and pluralistic worldviews will find this collection stimulating and insightful. Several chapters are noteworthy for their challenge to prevailing discourse and for the groundwork they lay for constructive theology. His chapter "Notes for a Constructive Theology of the Cross" raises significant questions concerning the meaning of the symbol of the cross, the spirituality and asceticism engendered by the cross, its necessity in the economy of salvation, and the understanding of God as willing the suffering of the cross as a means to salvation. Haight offers preliminary "notes" in response to these questions which disabuse the reader of the glorification of suffering and sacrifice that elicits devotion and perpetuates self-negation in hope of future reward. Haight suggests that it is not the cross that saves, but that "god saves in spite of and in face of the cross" (92). In this context, Haight proposes an intriguing reading of the Pauline understanding of the cross, of , and of Jesus as the second Adam."A further issue that shapes many of Haight's considerations is that of pluralism within Catholicism; between Catholicism and other Christian traditions; and among Catholicism, Christian traditions, and other world religions...Particularly lucid is his description and interpretation of the consciousness that comprise a post modern world view —historical consciousness, social consciousness, pluralist consciousness and cosmic consciousness —and that serve as "a lure to create new construals of Jesus Christ and the Church that meet the temper of our time" (130). Finally Haight brings his understanding of the postmodern consciousness to bear on an "Outline for an Orthodox Pluralist Christology" of Jesus as the revelation of "a savior God who wills the salvation of all whom God created" and as "the historical efficacy of that divine and salvific initiative" (159)...Haight's work offers a timely reply to vital questions voiced by an expanding number of faithful and, in so doing, stimulates thought and dialogue in turn". (Gloria L.Schaab, Barry University)

mediocre review (Toronto Journal Of Theology)

"Dr Haight offers helpful interpretationsof the theologies of Rahner...this series of notes to one of them will prove helpful to many. Libraries will consider the big book a priority and this one a useful extra"Theological Book Review Vol.19 no.2 2007 (Robert Morgan)
