Dulles on "Covenant and Mission"

The latest issue of the Jesuit weekly America has an article by Cardinal Avery Dulles on this hot-button document. In this article (sorry, it's not available online unless you subscribe) Dulles criticizes what he takes to be ambiguities in the usage of terms like "evangelization", "mission", and "covenant". His article concludes, "The document Covenant and Mission does not forthrightly present what I take to be the Christian position on the meaning of Christ for Judaism."

For Cardinal Dulles, this is pretty strong language.
