Past, Present, and Future Hans Küng

The major new work from the renowned theologian

For more than two decades, the world’s religions have been a central topic for Hans Küng. As one of the best-known pioneers of dialogue between cultures, his books have been a source of inspiration for millions of people. In this extraordinarily comprehensive book, he gives an in-depth account of Islam’s history and core beliefs. Describing paradigm shifts in its 1,400-year history, outlining the various currents and surveying the positions of Islam on the urgent questions of the day, few present-day Christian theologians could have written such a complete analysis. In a world where our understanding of global politics requires a knowledge of Islam, this deft, assured, and comprehensive study is a perfect place to start.
