The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has denounced the book “Jesus: Symbol of God” by American Jesuit Fr. Roger Haight as containing "grave doctrinal errors,” reported John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter.
As a result, Fr. Haight has been prohibited from teaching Catholic theology "until his positions have been corrected so as to be in full conformity with the doctrine of the Church," said the notification from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
The book was reviewed in 2000, and the Congregation for Catholic Education ordered him suspended from the Jesuit-run Weston School of Theology in Cambridge, Mass., soon after.
Fr. Haight is currently an adjunct professor at the non-Catholic Union Theological Seminary in New York, reported Allen.
