Show Summary Details

Preview

Two issues have dominated the discussion of Catholic ecumenical receptivity: first is the general need for western receptivity to the East with regard to a proper balance between pneumatology and Christology; second is the particular, strategically important issue of Petrine ministry. This chapter argues that the pneumatological theology of Walter Kasper illuminates both issues. It traces his Spirit theology from his Christology to his Trinitarian theology and his view of the church, then presents an example of this pneumatology at work in ecumenical theology — the critical issue of the Petrine ministry.
