No-one can read christology today without reference to the work of Hans Küng. But has Küng been widely misunderstood? Alrah L.M. Pitchers maintains that he has, and offers a critique of Küng's christology against the background of the German and Anglo-Saxon traditions with particular emphasis on Küng's brilliant grasp of Hegel. The author concludes that Hans Küng is among the most significant contributors to the christological debate today.
