Interreligious Relations : Biblical Perspectives, Hardback Book


This volume presents international perspectives on interreligious dialogue, with a particular focus on how this can be found or understood within biblical texts.

The volume is in four parts covering both the Old and New Testaments (and related Greco Roman texts) as well as the history of reception and issues of hermeneutics.

Issues of the relationships between religious cultures are assessed both in antiquity and modernityIn Part 1 (Old Testament) contributions range from the discussion of the bible and plurality of theologies in church life (Erhard Gerstenberger) to the challenge of multi-culturalism (Cornelis Van Dam).

Part 2 (New Testament and Greco-Roman Texts) considers such things as Pagan, Jewish and Christian historiography (Armin Baum) and the different beliefs it is possible to discern in the Ephesian community (Tor Vegge).

Part 3 provides issues from the history of reception - including the role of Jesus in Islam (Craig A.

Evans). The volume is completed by a hermeneutical reflection by Joze Krasovec, which draws the threads of dialogue together and questions how we can best examine the bible in a modern, international, multicultural society.
