The Future of ChristologyBook - 2005
Roger Haight's award-winning and best-selling book Jesus Symbol of God has recently been judged by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to contain grave doctrinal errors. Like a number of theologians before him - Hans Kung, Charles Curran, Anthony de Mello, Tissa Balasuriya, and Jacques Dupuis - Haight has been banned from teaching Catholic theology. In its overall criticism of the book, the Congregation charges 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.
