„Rigorous or radical“? Christianity and its duty to the polis in the legacy of Johann Baptist Metz`s work
Languages of publication
In this article I discuss the contribution to Christian thought by one of the most original Catholic theologians of the secondhalf of the 20th century, the late Johann Baptist Metz. I am seeking to highlight four main axes that are widely present in Metz`s thought. My aim is also to show how these axes are still present in modern Christian theology. To achieve these objectives, I briefly discuss a) Metz`s christology as it bears on b) his debate of human historicity. I further discuss c) Metz`s call for a ‘radicality’ of Christianity. All these dimensions of his thought are relevant for a heuristic d) rethinking of the issue of hope and its challenges for future Christian mission in and for the world.
