'Any book that leaves me asking whether my idea and experience of
God is growing bigger or smaller has definitely achieved
something.' --Sanford Lakoff
'Kung's continuing quest for language to speak meaningfully of God in today's world makes for exciting reading... Methodists seeking to commend their savior to others in the 21st century will find much value here.'--Sanford Lakoff
'The tone is positive and life-affirming but also down to earth... there is something engaging about his [Kung's] commitment to battle for a critical faith and for peace among religions rather than a clash of civilisations.'--Sanford Lakoff
"'What I Believe" is not a book to be read quickly, but rather one to ponder over. Some of it is couched in philosophical and theological language, but it is not too difficult to understand and well worth any effort involved.'--Sanford Lakoff
Book previewed in Schwabisches Tagblatt, 15 September, 2009
Kung's book deserves to be read by all who are dreaming of a better world, for it is likely to spur us into action to bring it about.--Reform
