Theology and the Dialogue of Religions, Paperback / softback Book

Theology and the Dialogue of Religions Paperback / softback

Part of the Cambridge Studies in Christian Doctrine series

Description

Theology of religions is an area of theological reflection on inter-religious relations which raises fundamental questions for all people of faith in a pluralist, post-modern world.

How to practise a religious faith with integrity while respecting other claims to ultimate truth?

Must 'the other' always be regarded as a problematic complication on the fringes of a Christianity-centred world? Is there a 'third way' between an all-dominating exclusivism and a vapid relativism?

This book contributes to the debate about the place of inter-religious relations in the life of the Church by developing a 'theology of dialogue'.

In offering a critique of much current thinking in this area, Michael Barnes SJ proposes instead a theology rooted in the themes of welcome and hospitality. He argues for a vision of Christianity as a 'school of faith', a community called not just to teach others but to learn from them as well.
